1. Run at least a mile every day. Grade: F
As I explained the other day, running every day was making my knees hurt. Particularly my right knee. My past two runs have been short. Only 15 minutes for just over a mile and my knee was feeling okay during them. I’m going to keep trying to run more frequently, but I don’t think the daily run will work for me right now.
2. Run a sub 12:30 mile at least once. Grade D-
Obviously, with the lack of running every day, this goal wasn’t achieved either. I did have a few miles that were sub 13:00. My best was actually the day I posted my June Goals post! I guess I gave myself reason to be optimistic that day. That day I averaged a 12:47 pace. I think this goal is doable and I may make it my end of summer goal.
3. Swim at least once per week. Grade: F
No real reason that this didn’t happen except for getting sick. I plan on making this a priority for the rest of the summer.
4. Head out for a bike ride (assuming my tires are salvageable) Grade: F
I haven’t even touched my bike. I’m thinking of convincing a friend or two to load up our bikes and go for a bike ride at Fort Wilderness. I don’t think that will be a difficult thing to convince them of.
5. Blog more Grade: F
Being sick and injured was probably the main reason I wasn’t writing much. I was also stressed about finances this month since my car needs an expensive repair. The work is finally getting done and I should have my car back by the end of the week. Hopefully.
6. Eat a salad at least twice per week. Grade: F
With money being tight this month, I made the rule that we were going to eat what is in the house. I tried to really limit my grocery shopping. That also meant limiting the veggies I purchased. I’m starting this goal over today.
7. Touch up my roots! Grade: A+!!!
I’m actually glad that I am doing this review. It gave me a reference as to when I touched up my roots. I’m trying to do them about every six weeks. At least now I know that I can wait a few more weeks before I do my next touch up.
I’ll post a July goals post soon!
