I really enjoy linking up with Tuesdays On The Run – after all, my blog is MOSTLY running based, with a little real life sprinkled in…
Last week, Erika, Marcia, and Patty discussed, “Giving your running month a letter grade”! I am going to try and post something similar month to month…
This grade is going to be based on (1) my current training plan, and my goals for 2017 – (2) my progress for 2017 miles in 2017 goal, (3) training for and completing my first 50 miler, (4) having fun while on the run and (5) keeping a run streak!
(1) Current Training Plan – A-
While I am still hitting MOST of my workouts, I have still been adding more easy miles to supplement my goals for later this year.
(2) 2017 miles in 2017 – A
I am making some major strides on my 2017 miles in 2017! I believe that I am around 100 miles ahead…which will help me during taper weeks or times that I am ill or need the extra recovery time!
(3) Training for and completing my first 50m – n/a
Other than a “running between races” plan that takes me through the first part of June, my training plan for the Hawk 100 50M race starts in June!! I am super excited and ready to start those long miles…
(4) Have Fun! – A-
Overall, I feel very successful with running happy and having fun!
The weather has made it a little difficult this month – super warm/hot for a week then freezing and cold, then torrential rain…but I make the most of the cards we are dealt! I am okay with heading to the gym when it is cold…and I am okay with running in the rain (as long as there is no lightening).
(5) Run streak! – A
There have been a handful of 1 mile, “keep the streak alive” days this year (2 last week alone…) but I don’t plan on keeping that a recurring theme. While I finish my weeks with plenty of miles to keep my #2017in2017 goal on track, I would rather not make those 1 mile days a go-to unless I am laid up and not ABLE to get more miles…
How are your goals going for this year? Did you set your sights high? Are you thinking about a big race this year?
Check out the link-up with Erika, Marcia, and Patty and see what everyone is talking about this week! I am also linking up with the Wild Workout Wednesday and the Coaches Corner linkup!
I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment and start a conversation!
