June fitness challenge

My May fitness challenge was a total success!!!  And so was the bread machine, which was my reward for the May fitness challenge!

So it’s June now!

I gave myself a bit of an exercise break after my 10K last week- I pretty much only walked and did yoga.  My knee and hip have been hurting all week so I’ve been trying to take it easy (I’m getting old!).  But it’s a new month and that means that it’s time for a new fitness challenge! 

Also I’ve decided that in July I’m going to start training for a half marathon.  There are several that I’m looking at in the fall, when I pick one I’ll let y’all know!  (I was going to wait till Feb for the Cowtown, but I figured why not do one sooner since I’m so pumped about it right now?!)

June Fitness Challenge

Goal 1:  Keep running, but cut down on my mileage a little.  I’m going to aim for running twice a week this month, but I’m going to run no more than 3 miles during a run- I want to work on consistency and maybe picking up my pace a bit.  Honestly I don’t really care much about how fast I run- it’s all about the distance to me.  But I think it would be really cool if I could consistently run around a 10 minute mile.  And I’ll also lift weights on days that I run.

Goal 2:  Ride my bike/take spin class more often!  A couple of my coworkers take a spin class on Wednesdays at noon, so I thought it might be fun to join them!  Also, Laura…. let’s go biking again soon!!!!

Goal 3:  Go to kickboxing more consistently.  I won’t be working on Mondays again for a while, so this should be easy since my fav kickboxing class is on Monday evening.

So in summary, my goal is to work out 4 days/week this month- two days running and lifting, one spin class or biking, and one kickboxing class.



I’m going to get a Garmin Forerunner 305 as my reward!

I want to run outside more and I want to be able to keep track of my pace and my mileage- especially since I’ll be training for a half marathon.  These things are soooo cool- it’s like a GPS in a watch! 

I’ve also found some pretty crazy good deals on ebay.  Can’t wait to get this!!!


I’m super pumped about this month’s fitness challenge!  And it starts riiiiiight….. NOW!!!
