Rachetruns 2018

The day after weights at the gym and I am struggling to shake my protein shake, yep you heard that right โ€“ I went to the gym AND I lifted a weight. Itโ€™s one of my many goals for 2018 ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ get me some muscle! ย From the lack of posting you have probably realised I have had a few days rest from running since the NYE marathon, I guess that was enough to put anyone in the less than motivated camp.ย  However, I have used my time wisely and of the many things I have been doing, planning my fitness goals for 2018 has been one of them.

As I have already said โ€“ no marathons for me this year but that doesnโ€™t mean I donโ€™t have aims. Firstly and perhaps most importantly, I am going to improve my general fitness and body conditioning which I have already begun and added to my spreadsheet.ย  Gym 3 times a week for weight training and strengthening โ€“ on it ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Alongside this is the improvement with my nutrition which has been forced on me with the many tummy issues I experience and therefore I am already on my way to improving this โ€“ on it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

Now, I am hoping that in turn both of these improvements will help with my running performances and I am hoping for some PBโ€™s. I know this wonโ€™t happen overnight but I am happy to put the work in and I hope to start seeing results by April.ย  I guess I need to turn these into SMART goals, so here goes:

  • Get into a routine of going to the gym 3 times a week by the end of January ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸฅŠ
  • Under 25min parkrun by the end of February ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
  • Improved general fitness and gain muscle weight, begin noticing body shape changes by end of March ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
  • Parkrun PB by end of April ๐ŸŽฏ
  • 10mile PB by end of May ๐ŸŽฏ
  • 10k PB by the end of June ๐ŸŽฏ
  • Appearance of abs by end of July ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคช
  • Aim to be in top 3 of Spitfire Pairs in July ๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿฅ‰

This will see me up until half way through the year at which point I will reflect on those above andadjust / set new ones accordingly.
