So the last post was a 4 week recap
That post lead up with daily check in
and week by week recaps
So what happened to that
Well like many things life happened
That’s not to say that I still have not been
Progressing toward my goal
Just that I have not been writing about it
So with that said.
What have the past 4 weeks looked like?
Waking up at 5 AM: 10 times
That is a tie with last month
Training: 8 Hours
That is double from what I did last month
Now though I am 8 week in
That’s only 56 days.
So technically I still have 4 whole days to make a push
But I wanted to check in today since yesterday marked week 8
My 60 day goal was as follows
I wanted to wake up early at least 4x a week
I wanted to run a 5k in 33 min
So between last month and this
That’s 20 total days I woke up early
That would have been a good total for one month
But not for 2, so even if I wake up early for the next 4 days
It wont make a dent, so I owe the republicans $100 on that front
On the next one, well though I have doubled my training time.
I have not been actually training for a 5k
Instead I have been mixing up cardio with some weights
So can I run 3 miles in 33 min,
Well… I hope so because according to my goals
I owe the republicans $200, I would really rather not
So I plan on running it today.
My best 3 miles I can give.
So I leveraged with pain,
I had pleasure in there with the trip
Well first let me say that the 5k is not what I really wanted
I just picked it because I was familiar with it.
Then I got board with just running and alas stop training for that
So my lesson from that is
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT!
Not what you think you want
Not what you think is easy
None of that, you must be crystal clear on what you want
Well that explains the training but what about the the waking up
That was as clear cut as it gets
Wake up 4am 4x a week.
I’v got excuses galore for those
From lack of sleep that would interfere with working out
To partying and staying up later than needed
Working late affecting my sch
So on and so forth, which brings me to my second tip
Like I said there would be times where I wake up
Think to myself that 4-5 hours isnt enough
Then go back to sleep for the sake of my body.
So does that mean that I am not going for this goal
Am I going to choose one or the other.
No, I refuse
Though that would be the way I may have done it if I was to start over
Instead I will say this, on days where I fear lack of sleep will hinder recovery
I will simply say that I will do light cardio …If that is even needed.
Because my 3rd tip is this…. Focus and Commit
Although I never quit trying on my goal,
I did quit holding myself accountable
I haven’t posted in my FB group in about 3 weeks
You already know how long its been since I posted here.
It is mainly due to FOCUS.
Between work, friends, and competing frames of mind
I just did want I can.
Which was okay for the 1st 30 days
When I’m getting use to it,
But my day 60, I should have more results
So while its not back to the drawing board.
It is back to basic as I post again
and go for another 60 day run
Which I will post about more later.
