I really like how Nike Plus puts together these little profiles and have found them pretty handy in the past in gauging my running, but they will definitely be more helpful as I move forward and try to focus more on longer distances and adding some speed to my runs. Eventually, I'd like to be faster than a herd of turtles. :)
Saturday: 2.01 miles @ 10:13/mile and 5.04 miles @ 9:28/mile
Sunday: 1.22 miles @ 9:36/mile
Monday: 3.11 miles @ 9:18/mile
Tuesday: 1.01 miles @ 9:53/mile
Wednesday: 1.60 miles @ 11:12/mile
AS FOR AUGUST! It's time to set some goals!
Goal #1 Continue the #runstreak.
Obviously. :) I said something about the run streak to a friend the other day and he replied "well you can't stop now. Otherwise the internet will hold you accountable."
Goal #2 Increase total weekly & monthly distances.
Since the run streak will guarantee me at least 30 miles in August, I want to make it my goal to at least double that. That means 60 miles in one month. But thinking on that, it doesn't seem like a lofty enough goal. I mean, in all honesty, I could easily do two miles a day. So I'm gonna tack on an extra 10 miles and aim for 70 miles in August. I think it's doable. It will push me, but I can make it happen. That means 17-18 miles a week. DO WORK, SON!
Goal #3 Buy new running shoes.
I know, this shouldn't be so hard. But I always put this off. The pair of shoes I wore before the ones I have now I had been "running" in for over 6 years. In fact, I honestly don't even remember how long I had those shoes. But it was too long. So by the end of August, I want new running shoes. time to do some research!
And there it is. My running goals for August and a re-cap on July.
What are your goals for the next month?!?!
