Before I look at May, I want to recap April. It was a good month. Overall, tracking work outs led to me working out on a more regular basis. I created a spreadsheet that I used to track what days I ran, worked out or did yoga. I tracked three weeks before I switched to Yancy Camp training and those three weeks were filled with workouts.
Biggest note of accomplishment is that I wanted to run more than March. In March I ran 19 miles. In April, I ran 20. Actually more like 22, but that was what was captured by Garmin.
Biggest goal is to be consistent with my Yancy Training otherwise it’s just a waste of money. That means making another spreadsheet. Super nerdy, but it worked last month. It allows me to see how often I’m working out.
Goal is to complete 12 modified Yancy Camp workouts. I say modified because I’m changing them to fit my workout opportunities and schedule. Read more about that in my last blog post and I plan on writing more once I feel like I have a working system.
Secondary goals are to do Yoga eight times and pull-up workouts, either Pull-Up Challenge, or Yancy Camp pull-ups 12 times.
Beyond being consistent, I’m working improving on the Yancy Camp Fitness test last months. Decreasing my two mile run time, increasing how many burpees and pull-ups I can do. Would like a 30% improvement when I re-test after three months. That would put me in a good spot for my next race in June.
As far as running, I’d like to log 23 goals, another step towards 30 miles per month which is my long-term goal.
I’m also working on getting my weight under 185. I spiked late last year, think holidays and stress, but have been steadily going down. Stretch goal is 170. One step and one salad at a time.
