It is officially the 31st of March, the end of the month. The time for me to reflect on my goals and whether I completed them (You can check out that post here). I mean anyone else love the fact the end of the month has ended on a Sunday, and the beginning of next month begins on a Monday? Love that.
I mean I would be lying if I said this month wasn’t hard… Normally I am alright with fitness and I enjoy going to the gym (weird I know). But the beginning of this month I really struggled with motivation and I just didn’t want to exercise or run (it was weird). I did it anyway, but the first two weeks were very limited with amount of exercise I was doing. I don’t really know why I was stuck in this weird rut, and I thought I wasn’t going to get out of it. I also really convinced myself I wasn’t going to complete any of my fitness goals I had set myself, and it was all very stupid.
Lets get into my goals I set…
Cycle 10km on the bike a week
This is probably one of the goals deep down I knew I would be able to complete. To confirm I did actually do this goal and I managed to cycle over 10km a week on the bike in the gym every week! So definitely happy about that.
Run 25 miles throughout the month
This one is should be easy for me (I mean my training for my half-marathon was running over 50 miles a month). However, I have been in a slump with my running for some reason. I don’t know what it is, or why but I just have lacked motivation to run. The first two weeks of March were considerably difficult and to be honest I really thought I wasn’t going to complete the 25 miles. I mean literally my lack of runs within those first two weeks was appalling… However, something happened within that third week and I just started running more (it was like something in me changed). This means that somehow by some miracle I have actually ran 25 miles within the month of March. Meaning I ran just over 10 miles a week for the last two weeks. Time to up the game now I am motivated again haha! Let me know how far you think I should run next month? (I am thinking of maybe 35 miles throughout April).
Complete one fitness class
Ok so this one might seem a bit pathetic for all you hardcore gym goers out there (trust me I think it is too haha). But honestly with my timetable and everything that is going on, and the times of the classes in my gym it is soo hard to go to a class. HOWEVER, of course I went and finally managed to get to a bloody class… and when I say that I mean it took me until the last day (that is today) to do that class. I chose to do a “spin” class because I really enjoy them and I have done a few of them before. Plus I have been at my gym FOREVER that the gym instructors know me so always make the class fun.
That was all for my goals, but I shall be making some more goals which I shall post next week so look out for that! Also HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the wonderful, hard working, gorgeous mummies out there! You are doing a fabulous job and I hope to one day be as great as you all! I haven’t wrote a specific post but my last post was about celebrating each other, which I think fits perfectly with Mother’s day so check that out here. 🌸
