November is hereeee! Okay, I know it’s been here for a few of days but I am a little late. Obvi. I see a lot of people doing November goals so I figure it would be a good thing for me to do too. I actually do have a lot of goals so I guess writing it down will (hopefully) help me keep up with them.1. Drink more water – Some days I’m really good at this, and then others, I’m not. During my runs lately, I have felt really thirsty. Therefore, I tell myself, “Drink more water.” Of course, I forget about it later the next day. But not this time! These past few days, I have been really on top of my water consumption. Once I do this for the rest of the month, hopefully it will become a habit.
2. Have a better sleep pattern – Since being in college, my sleep pattern has been totally off. A typical night would end with me going to bed around 12 or 1. Then I would have to wake up the next morning at 7:30. Not fun stuff. I always regret it in the morning. On weeknights especially, I need to get to sleep at a decent time. Maybe 11 or even 10. This will not only help me with school but with running as well.3. Add more strength training to my workouts – While training for basketball over the summer, I was lifting weights 3 days a week. I got so much stronger. But once I quite, I sort of just…stopped. I focused more on running. I was doing 3 days a week of running and 3 days a week of spinning or some other form of cardio. I need to add weights or some sort of strength training because I really did like it!4. Procrastinate less – HA! I always say that… Lately I have been really bad at getting homework and assignments done on time. I was really timely at the beginning of the year but then it just sort of…went away. Now, I need to get back in the swing of things and get work done asap!
I’m sure I have some more goals deep down but that is all I could think of for now. Of course, another goal I have is to keep up with my recovery. I don’t want to have any sort of setbacks that hold me back. I am so happy with how far I have come that I hope it will continue.
And tomorrow I will be running a half marathon in San Francisco. I’m so excited! We’ll be running over the Golden Gate Bridge so it will be beautiful. Hopefully it’s just not raining…that would not be so beautiful.
Do you guys have any goals this month?
