April Goals

New Year. New goals and resolutions.

So, I thought that starting a monthly post about my fitness/life goals. Starting at the beginning of the month, I am going to set in stone my goals – and then report back at the end of the month with my successes and…lack of successes.


April Goals 

  • Have fun at my first marathon!
  • Continue to run 3-5 days a week post marathon to keep fitness up for pacing half marathons this spring
  • Continue long runs on the weekend
  • Cross train 2+ times a week
  • Yoga and/or deep stretching whenever possible – 10+ minutes, try to make it a daily routine (try harder this month!!!!)
  • Foam roll 5+ minutes daily
  • Walk 90,000 steps each week
  • Get 10K-15K steps daily – even on non-running days!!
  • Run/walk/crawl 150 miles this month
  • Feed my body in the best ways possible
  • Record miles weekly for #2016in2016 and the 2016 Gold #1000Challenge!
  • Enjoy the JOY in the JOURNEY!!
  • Think about the fall racing and pacing schedule!

How are your goals changing for this month versus last month? Are you prepping for any upcoming races?

  1. Love this idea of setting health and fitness goals each months. I do am always looking to incorporate more foam rolling and yoga. But it’s hard to fit it all in when I prefer cardio and strength training.


  2. Love these! In addition to a foam roller you should check out Yoga Therapy/Tune-Up balls. So where a foam roller feels like a forearm on your legs, the tune-up balls feel like a thumb. They really work into a specific area. I’ve found they are super helpful particularly for my glutes.
