June was a pretty successful month. Juneathon, friends, running. It had it all! Let’s see if I accomplished any of my goals for the month and make some new goals for July!
–Juneathon: Accomplished. I worked out every day, logged it, and blogged about it. I tried new things and I feel a lot better with my body.
–More strength training: I would consider this accomplished. Going to the YMCA helped me with this. I was able to use different machines there and use heavier weights there too. Welcome back, strength training
–Running Group: Accomplished. I met with them every Saturday (except the Saturday of the Bellin Run). I also went to one of their fun runs and to the monthly meeting. Everyone in this group is so positive and encouraging.
–Sign up for the Fox Cities Marathon and one other race on my schedule: Big time accomplished! I was able to sign up for the Fox Cities Marathon at a discounted rate at the Bellin Run race expo and I signed up for the rest of my races this summer.
–Go to the YMCA and take a spinning class: Sort of accomplished. I joined the YMCA, but I didn’t take a spinning class. I usually go to the Y on Friday’s and there aren’t classes offered on Friday’s. But I usually make an attempt to get on the bike while I’m there.
–Take more pictures: Accomplished. I managed to get to the Appleton Botanical Gardens and I took more pictures family functions this month and when I hung out with my friends.
–Visit one friend: ACCOMPLISHED!! I visited my friend, Tom, in Madison last weekend. And this weekend I was able to see him again, along with my other friend, Ella! Yay! Those were two of the best weekends and I hope I am able to to more stuff with them the rest of the summer.
–Finish one book: Epic fail. It’s really hard for me to read anymore because I don’t get any breaks at my job. At Walmart, I used to read on both of my 15min breaks and during my hour lunch. But now I really don’t have time when I get home because I have other things I want to get done.
–Ran in the Bellin Run! It was a lot of fun, despite the heat.
–Got new hours at work. 7am-3pm. It’s nice to get done an hour earlier, but getting up at 5:30am sucks sometimes.
–Started watching the new Dallas series. So far, so good!
–After seeing my uncles Ironman tattoo, I started thinking about maybe doing a triathlon in the future.
–I started taking three more multi-vitamins and I feel awesome.
–Take a spinning class this month: Maybe I can accomplish this goal in July
–Keep going to my running group: I would like to get some friends in my group. That was one of the reasons I joined was to make running friends.
–Get my school stuff straightened out: Look at my schedule, do my FAFSA, lame stuff.
–Keep visiting friends: I hope I can continue to see my friends and maybe see my cousin this month too!
–Start thinking of where I could work once school starts: ugh
–Attempt some speed work into my training
–Write out my schedule for the upcoming week on Sunday night
–Continue to keep up on blogging: with Juneathon, I had to blog once a day. It was hard some days, but not impossible. I don’t want to blog every day, but at least three times/week.
This month my family and I are going up north for a week, so I’m not sure how many of these I will be able to accomplish, but we will see!!
