Honestly, this has been one heck of a year. And here we are, in September already. I’m thinking it’s time to set some goals for the last few months of 2023.
Get A Race On The Calendar
Technically, I’m supposed to run a Labor Day 5K, but I just haven’t signed up for it. Sigh. I can’t commit. I want to race, but I feel like I am holding off for something else? I can’t explain it, but I guess it’s saving me money on registrations.
Quiet My Negative Self-Talk
I’ll confess I haven’t been very kind to myself lately. Usually, I have decent self-esteem and self-confidence, but in the last few months, that has slipped. I really need to get back to appreciating myself was a good, productive human, and boost my own morale.
Lock Down My Training
My training is, admittedly, a mess. I want to organize my workouts, and be more intentional and productive with what I’m doing. My miles are ok, but I’m still struggling with consistent strength and stretching.
Get Back To Those Long Runs
The summer here is no joke, and between the heat, humidity, allergens, and some personal hiccups, my long runs have dwindled. I’ve been procrastinating on pushing my limits on my scheduled long run days, and that needs to stop, pronto. Will I be able to gut through my 12K next month? Yes. Do I think I can put some more effort into making it easier? Also, yes. I need to step it up.
