In my previous post, I reached my goal, now what?, I went over how my last set of goals worked or didn’t work. And now it’s time for setting new goals. I have learned from trial and error it’s not just the goals you have to write down but also an action plan. How are you going to get there? I am much more likely to follow through if I know exactly what I have to do to reach my goals.
Knowing Where I Am At
I had my first Fit Class and we started with a new fitness assessment.
My results were as follows:
- .25 mile – completed in 2:25 min.
- 1 minute – 29 push-ups
- 1 minute – TRX pull-ups
- 1 minute goblet squats with 20 lb dumb bell – 29
- Max Dead Lift – 205 lbs.
We did our assessment a little different this time so I won’t use last assessment. My quarter mile was a lot better than I thought it would be but it was unsustainable for me. So, one of my goals is to increase my endurance.
My TRX pull-ups are the other part I would like to work on – one of these days, I’m going to do a pull-up!!
I was happy with the push-ups and goblet squats. I did not think I would be able to dead lift that much! My goal isn’t to be a heavy, heavy lifter so working on maintaining that is good for me right now!
A few weeks ago I took pictures to be able to compare my progress. I will be taking a new one every month.
I will be doing the bike/run portion of IronGirl in June so my goals need to start including my training for that.
Time Frame of Goals
When setting new goals, it is important to be realistic. This doesn’t mean you should squash your big goals, but make sure they are attainable. Work up to your larger goals. As much as I want to set my goals for 6 months out. I am going to shoot for 8 weeks because that is how long my Fit Class is and I don’t want fail when I need to make a different schedule to fill that time.
- Drink more water! That will always be there!
- Improve Cardio – run a mile
- Start cycling
- Increase plank time – I am currently at 2:30
- Do a pull-up
