Since I’ve been a little (ok, a lot) off track the past few weeks I’m hoping it will help if I share some summer goals that I can look back at to help keep me motivated and accountable this summer.
Summers are a little less structured for me, so sometimes it’s hard to stay focused, but none of these goals are anything I shouldn’t be able to easily manage while also enjoying our time on Cape Cod!
1. Train with Jason for the Dumbo Double Dare
2. Marathon Training
3. Reach Fundraising Goal
My #1 goal this summer as far as running is concerned is to work with Jason to make sure he is trained and ready for the Dumbo Double Dare at the end of August. Last year he ran his first race, the Disneyland 10k, and had such a great time he immediately began talking about doing the half. We’re already a little behind on training since his work schedule has been so crazy, but once his off season gets here we should have plenty of time to get him ready! I am so excited to have someone to run with this summer and to do these races with him!
1. Practice 3x Week
2. Work on Goal Poses
One of my favorite things to do while we’re at Cape Cod is Yoga on the Beach! I’m fortunate enough that there is a morning class taught right on the private beach in our development so I can walk down and go a few times a week. There is nothing like doing yoga in the warmth of the sun with the sound of the water nearby!
It’s a more gentle class than I typically do so I’d like to supplement it with some of my own practices so I can work on some deeper variations of poses I’ve been working towards as well – like being able to grab that back foot in the pose below!
1. Study for GRE’s
2. Work on Online DPT Application
So my 5 year plan for school is taking a little longer than I had originally anticipated, both because of a little bit of bad planning on my part and me constantly second guessing if this is really what I want to be doing. As of right now I’m on track for another year of prerequisite classes and hopefully entering a DPT program fall of 2015 which means I need to study for and take the GRE’s this fall and work on my applications which will be due this fall/ winter.
