This week’s Friday Five theme with the DC Trifecta is Goals, and I thought that this would be the perfect time to give a status report on the progress I’m making in meeting my summer fitness goals. At the beginning of June I shared five things that I planned on doing this summer, many of which are training related. At the end of June I shared an additional training goal for the summer. So what progress have I made towards meeting my summer goals?
1. Make running outside during the week a priority
Since school ended a month ago, I’ve completed many more of my training runs outside. While part of this was forced upon me since I went almost two weeks without going to the gym, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to explore our new neighborhood by foot.
2. Reaching my 1,000 mile milestone
Since I started running last March, I’ve run, walked, and ellipticalled almost 973 miles. I’m only 27 miles away from reaching my goal! My guess is that I’ll reach this milestone sometime in early August.
3. Completing my third half marathon
Training for Virginia Beach has been going extremely well. Its hard to believe that in five short weeks I’ll be running my third half marathon!
4. Closing on and moving into our first house
5. Celebrating my third wedding anniversary
Okay, so celebrating our anniversary isn’t a goal per se, but its still very important nonetheless. Next Wednesday marks our third wedding anniversary. I can’t wait to kick off our anniversary celebration this weekend at the Billy Joel concert at Nats Park Saturday evening.
