I got a comment last week from Beth saying that her weekly recap includes goals for the following week. I love that idea, so here are my goals for the coming 7 days:

--include 3 strength training sessions this week (and don't let 5 days pass in between them this time!)
--Have running mileage between 34-36 miles
--Include one 14 mile run this week

Today was an awesome day of exploring the area and I'm going to write a mega post on it tomorrow because there was so much to tell! I will tell you it included an ice-cream cone and 80+ degree weather!

What are your goals for this week?

Tell me one great/interesting thing you did this weekend!


  1. Awesome week! I find laying out my goals give me a sense of direction for the coming week.

    I had an awesome fun run this week and toured Arlington Cemetery for the first time (despite living within 2 miles of there for the past 3 years...)

  2. Nice mileage for the week! Way to commit to the speed work !

    This weekend...I went on a bike ride by the beach and caught up with my best friend. Not super interesting but super relaxing:).

  3. SO SO jealous of the weather there!!

    My goals for the week are a 15 miler next weekend; to stretch before and after every workout AND on my rest days; to follow through on the whole push-up challenge! SO jealous you are one week #6! I did week 1 day 1 yesterday...haha!

    Interesting this weekend...ummm I just took a study break to go was nice to get outside even though it is a bit chilly :)

  4. The weather was awesome this weekend! I had a planned 12 miles that turned into 10 because I was so hot and humid, but I don't mind. My goals
    Next week are to work on strength training 3x, I always plan on 3 but usually end up with 2.

  5. I can't wait for the day when it is that warm here! I need some sun in my life :-)

  6. New Follower!

    Awesome week! I have never really set goals for the week! So here is to my first goal setting... TRY for 25-30 miles this week!

    Our weekend here was hot and WINDY (30-40 mph)... I am ready for our windy season to be over with!

    Hope you have a great week!

  7. You are officially awesome! Great workout week!

  8. Well....I am going to start the 100 push-ups challenge this week, adding to my ab/strength training, super excited to take this on!
    Also my goal for the month is to run at least 50 miles for the month, so I am working towards that every week too!

  9. You had a great week! I got to go to the POOL this weekend! It felt very summer :)

    Goals for this week...finally make it back to spinning and run at least 20 miles.

  10. Great week!!! Good goals for the upcoming week as well!! Way to go!! One great thing about my weekend was seeing my two best friends and enjoying a drink outside with them!

  11. 80 degrees and an ice cream cone (let us not forget about the tank top!) JEALOUS. we had almost a foot of snow just last week. luckily it's melted now but, it's still only 40 degrees out there. sniffle.

    thanks for sharing your goals. i like to read that others are out there getting their sweat on. i'm pretending to taper this week for a 1/2 marathon on saturday.

  12. Boring, but cleaned my house! So in need. I can't function in a messy space. Love your goal setting!
