Goal Review

As it's already a quarter into the year, so thought it's time for a review of the goals I posted up in January...

To take the studios to a new level Working on it... baby steps. Unfortunately the floods slowed things down in many businesses considered 'luxury' - beauty, hair, fitness, but we're getting there!!
To cut back my hours – realistically I cannot work 14hour days forever. And I have!! However now I feel like I'm not busy enough!!!! Of course.
To take more time out. Yep... as per above.
To implement some different training sessions I’ve been working on. YUP!! A few different processes are going through right now :)

See all those run times to the right, they’re all gonna get smashed!!! ;) I’m working with a trainer who is KILLING me in training. My times aren’t breaking any records at the moment, but consistency and the WANT will get me there. Realistically – the longer distance times can improve, but the shorter ones may just hold their place on the blog board for a little longer!
Well I was right with the consistency and the WANT will get me there comment! I've blown myself away with results! My 5km PB still stands, but surprisingly I gave it a thorough shake-up a few weeks ago! A second-fastest PB can count ;) Some course PBs have been broken though! Yay to me!!
To do my first triathlon!! It’s coming, in March! DONE!!! And loved it!!!
To get my shoulder sorted out for good. Currently in progress! Yea.. sorta happening. I'm sick of babying it...
To respect my body, feed it nutritious fuel, and it will perform better and stronger. Yes, I'm feeding it LOTS of fuel... does sugar count ;)
To be a more giving, loving and understanding partner, daughter, sister, friend and trainer. OK, I must have been and an "I'm in touch with my emotions" mood for that one. That doesn't sound like me! ;)

Not bad for a 1/4 year effort!!

Today's training consisted of upper body training. I've had total rest all year with weights (that sounds bad, does 'a 12-week-break' sound better??), just swimming to keep it going. Bad I know, but I needed to sort the shoulder out. I haven't lost much strength, or size, it just feels a little softer than I'd like, of course. Today I went nice and easy, but I'm getting sore already. Bring on the pain tomorrow.........................................

Went for a 30 min fairly fast run with one of the other trainers, and finished off with sprints. That killed us. Especially at 2.30pm....

Sounds ike you've got most things sorted. Well done

Quick question about your trainer your runnind with. Is he a personal trainer and someone you work with or did you find him somewhere else?

I am thinking of getting a personal trainer just short term as a little motivation and also help with technique more for weights for me...

How does it work for you?
