Setting a Summer Goal and Starting Over

It's funny how my last post I was raving about my final assessments and how I improved in all areas, some even by a large margin.

Those numbers were from a little over three weeks ago and as I had mentioned I am no longer "in session" but I am planning on attending every morning class that is offered. 

This morning kicked off the Summer sessions and the beauty of having a membership is not having to be a part of assessments, which for me means not having to run a mile. But I wanted to see how eating a little less strictly and drinking a little more has affected my workouts, if at all.

For once, I slept really well so it helped me get up at the ungodly time that is 4:45 am. I made my coffee with collagen and nutpods before hitting the road at 5:15.

In my last session we ran first and did everything else after, but this morning we did the opposite. As you can see (and if you remember) all of my numbers are less than what I finished with less than a month ago.

And the mile run?

I am essentially right where I started in March. However, this was the first mile I ran straight through without a single stop and it was a different time of day on different course. Who knows if that affected me but I am using all of these numbers as a reminder to keep myself in line and stay on track because ultimately I want to continue to improve in strength and speed.

FUN FACT: If you don't take a selfie after you workout, it doesn't count.

My goal for before Labor Day is to run a mile in under 10 minutes. I've never been able to pull it off but I'll be damned if I don't work at it and try.

What are your Summer fitness goals?
