I had set myself the following goal for March:
Which I didn't hit:
Does 91% of a Goal count?... I hope so! Because I had my Easter Egg yesterday and loved every bit of it :)
While I 'only' hit 91K in March I am still rather pleased with my progress. I have ran two 10K races this month, and if I hadn't gotten man-flu last week (see that gap from the 17th-21st), I would have totally hit my 100K goal.
Also, this didn't account for any walking I did in the month, which if I look at my RunKeeper app amounts to... 72.7K
When you throw in all the Level 1's of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, I think my Easter Egg was well deserved yesterday! I savoured every bit of it :) I'm also 8.5lbs lighter than I was at the beginning of the month so it's Win-win really!
So where does that leave me for April?
I'm going to set two goals - One straight-forward, one multi-faceted (I love the word multi-faceted, I've just been waiting for the right time to use it in a Blog Post).
- Top March's figures:
- Run for longer than 9 hours
- Run further than 91K
- Obtain a better average pace (5m 55s/km)
- Run 15K in a single run
If I apply my SMARTER goal setting strategy to April, I get the following:
