PT Mollie`s Virtual Training Group

Virtual training final2 colour

Join the fun! Starting January 14. Mollie Millington is starting a new – her sixth – round of the eight week long Virtual Training Group. Starting out with three SMART goals you are ready to go for weekly e-mails with articles, tips and Mollie`s report. It really is the perfect time to join, you don`t need gym buddies (you don`t even need a gym!) or friends to rely on for your early morning runs. All you need is some resolutions for the new year that you want to keep. That`s easy, right? It could be anything, like an exercise routine, healthy eating habits, you name it.

Head over to Millie`s blog to find out more and sign up before January 14., I am really exited to take part in this and I`m sure, judging from all of the positive responses to previous training groups hosted by Millie, you would enjoy it too.

The very best aspect? For first-timers the virtual training group is free, for veterans, you are asked to pay a very affordable sum of $15 (that is for the full cycle).

October Goals

Last month I started posting my monthly goals. 30 days later it`s time to follow up on the old goals and set new ones.

September Goals:

Workout Related

  • Workout wisely and stay healthy – no injuries this month Done. I did take some days off as a measure of safety but no, I was not injured.
  • Race – at least two races are on my to do list and another one is in the back of my head I raced yesterday – my first 10K. The other races were canceled and never took place.
  • Do it together – work out with friends when possible My friends and I discovered just how well we can work out together. Now I need friends who push me. I do treasure my solo runs though!
  • More sets – increase my strength training to three sets of the core. Nope. I did 2.5 sets and was going for 3 but it didn`t happen.

Personal

  • Work hard daily – College starts again in two weeks and I am more than ready to study every day I started successfully, my first presentation is Thursday and it`s all ready and prepared already.
  • Cut down unnecessary time on social networks – Facebook? Really? I get notifications, I don`t need to check back constantly! Another check, you see, it was a good month!
  • Host friends – my Birthday is coming up and some old friends are in town, perfect to catch up I met friends at home twice, we had a lot of fun!
  • Sleep – I need my eight hours and if I can not get them in the morning, I just need to go to bed earlier, not that hard It really makes a difference and I am so much more relaxed!

October Goals:

  • I want to do those three sets of the Core. I was so close!
  • Swim. I still have credit on my membership card, it`s time to use it!
  • Run with even more friends.
  • Stretch, roll, stretch, roll, … need I say more?

Personal

  • Relax. Sans watch. I have my phone by my bed, I am always calculating time – whether it`s spent or left, I need to chill!
  • Read. I have not finished a single book lately and there are so many I want to read.
  • Drink Water. I lacked, on some days I didn`t even drink 2 litres. This month I`ll have 1.5 litres a day, at least (I know!)

That`s it. All I can think of for this month.

Did you make any goals this month? Could you cross anything of your list from September?

September Goals

Something I learned was to make short-term goals to help you stay on track with the things you need to juggle around. The best way to actually do them is to write them down somewhere where you will see them often and to share them.

I think four goals each should be good for a start. If you want to leave your goals, feel free to share them! But make them measurable so that you can actually hold yourself accountable!
