2018 Goal Review.. how am I getting on..??
Wow... we're half way through the year.. and the goals I talked about over the new year and wrote about are almost half way through...
Goals Set AND Achieved:
- Compete in the Crossfit Open in early 2018, with the aim to complete each workout able to score at least 1 repetition for each defined movement RX.
YES!! Achieved... but only because I didn't get to the muscle ups.. I was timed out beforehand by being so slow at Double Unders..
But I'll take it.
- Create a personal training plan for 3 months (Jan-March) to allow for cross discipline training for Crossfit and running. This will include 4 sessions per week of running to hit 25+ miles per week.
YES!! Achieved.. well at least partly... I created a plan, but injury meant I couldn't follow through on all of the running..
- Create a personal nutrition plan for Jan-March to (finally) kick my cake habit and start eating a more balanced diet to support my training (rather than eating what I like because I’m training!)
YES!! Achieved..but a little late
I didn't get the plan in place early in the year, but I have been working with a nutritionist now for nearly 3 months. I've lost over a stone in weight, and I'm managing my cake habit!! I'll write more on this separately!
Goal Under Way... PB Marathon.... now that's a different story, I'll share more of that soon :-)
