Sweat etc. June 2014

Hello July. Officially passed the half way mark for 2014. A lot has been achieved in that time though so I happy to appreciate that, savour that while continuing to charge forward and stay focused on my goals! 

This was the plan for June: 

not much eh?! 🙂 

1. Weekly Schedule: Yoga 1 – 2x, run to programme (weeks 5 – 8),  BRICK session every other week, Reformer 1x, Other 1x 

Week 1: reformer, NTC run to train, spin, WOTN 10km
Week 2: spin, crossfit, crossfit, voga
Week 3: reformer, lower body workout
Week 4: half marathon, crossfit
Week 5: yoga inversions workshop

Still lacking in yoga but I have vowed to get back on this post half marathon! No BRICK sessions but duathlon training starts seriously now, again, now the half marathon is done! I did about 50% of the reformer classes I would have hoped to – I did have another booked in the week leading up to the half but then I decided to rest my legs. Not too shabby in my opinion 🙂

2. Aim for a half marathon PB 

YES!! DONE!! …did you read #MyMoments?!

3. Finish crossfit foundation classes 

I’m almost there! One more foundations class to complete which is booked in for this very weekend coming! After that, I’m into the Level 2 workouts! We’ll still work on skills but we’ll be rocking some tough workouts too!

4. Prepare duathlon training plan for post half marathon

Plan printed and ready! I’m about to complete week 2 of training so I just need to keep a focus and continue doing whats needed!

5. Cycle commute 1 – 3x per week 

I definitely think I achieved this! I’ve spent a lot less on public transport (which is a great thing for my finances!).

Focus Forward to July…

July 2014 Goals 

1. Weekly schedule: duathlon training to plan, crossfit 1x, yoga 1-2x, reformer 1x, spin 1x

    Great work on smashing out your June Goals. I'm aiming to get to 100km of running in July. Now that I'm not sick any more I can actually get training in!I also want to bring my 5km time down. Love to get closer to the 22min end (that's running a 4:30 pace). I might not get it in July, but I will aim for it all the same. Good luck with your whole30, I look forward to hearing how it goes.
