First, checking in on August’s goals:

Celebrate Halfway to 70. The day came. I hung out with friends. I’m 35 now.

Transparency. I made a little bit of progress.

Workout 5x per week. I think I achieved this except for the last week of August when I had a day when I was unexplainably tired and ended up taking it easy for the rest of the week. But if I count Divvy rides as workouts, then I nailed it.

Fast Women / Strong Women. So, I think I figured out a “name” for the project or idea or whatever that is rolling around in my head. Haven’t done anything with it though.

Finish paying off loan. And maybe take out another one. We finished paying off the loan (eight months early!) but we still have a lot of debt and plan to pay off some of it with a no-interest credit card.

So. It was a month. I didn’t read any books. I did, however, hit 103 miles!!  66 running and 36 cycling. (DailyMile rounds off miles.) And it was my second-highest mileage running month this year. (I ran 67 miles in May.)



Goals for September:

Go to Seattle! The tickets are already purchased. Hopefully, it happens this time. This was originally planned for April and we pushed it back.

Do another race! Already registered 🙂

Read a book. I’ll be up in the air for like 8-9 hours total.

Run 80 miles. I’m planning to do the F3 Half in January so I want to start base-building before starting a training plan. So I can comfortably do something more than Hal Higdon’s Novice plan.

Create a vision. This is an actual goal with substance. I’ve been feeling somewhat unsatisfied and unfulfilled by my life lately. It hasn’t been totally clear to me how to improve things, so, I have to start making some effort and envisioning what might make me happier.


What do you hope to accomplish in September?
