Good morning and welcome to week 38 of Fitness Friday!
Recently accomplishing a few of my goals has me thinking about what I’ve accomplished so far and what I want to accomplish next. What’s next? A half PR!
On December 30, I committed to 6 goals for 2012 including fitness, creating and photography.
1. Run [at least] 12 half marathons.
2. Run an endurance relay.
3. Complete P90X2 90-day challenge.
4. A half marathon PR.
5. Complete Project Life.
6. Complete a 52 week photo challenge, 52 Weeks of Chad and Jill.
1. 12 half marathons in 2012. Making progress.
- 2 registered half marathons and 1 homemade half. For the purpose of the challenge that brings me to 2 half marathons so far.
- April will be the first month I run 2 half marys in one month, the Gulf Coast Half Marathon and the Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon.
- Yes! I’m doing this and the thought of it still freaks me out a little 🙂
- Plans have changed considerably from our original relay, Ragnar Colorado. The update/changes are worthy of it’s own post so more details on that later.
- 3/31/12 was day 90 of P90x2!
- Within this goal was was the goal of 5 unassisted pull-ups. Done!!
- One of the questions I’m most often asked is whether or not P90X (or P90X2) have made me a faster runner. The answer is that both workout programs have made me a stronger runner with increased endurance and cardio.
- I will do the 90 days again at some point during this year.
- It wasn’t until after completing the X2 90 day challenge that I realized how much energy, effort and focus I was putting into accomplishing that 90-day goal. Now that it’s done my focus is changing. I’m going to put the same energy, effort and focus on a half PR and accomplishing a sub-2:00 half.
- Of course there’s a plan 🙂 Speedwork, a long run, continued strength training and consistent stretching/flexibility.
- After 4-weeks I will see how how it’s going, change strength routines and make other changes as needed.
- An on going project that I love, 2012 Project Life.
- Documenting the lives of my family in a way that is doable and sustainable for 52 weeks.
