September 2012 Goals

August 2012 Goals

  1. Survive my commencement ceremony – SUCCESS! I survived the speechifying! Barely.
  2. Get the back bamboo area cleaned out and replanted with something nice. This is important, since I’m having a garden party in August FAIL! I did nothing with the bamboo. It is still there.
  3. Clean house before house guests arrive! – SUCCESS! I cleaned enough to relax about the whole thing.
  4. Foist cake on someone. – FAIL! I did not do an August cake. However, I made 4 cakes in July, so close enough, right?
  5. Finish craft project and have it turn out not ugly. (This is harder than you’d think – I am not crafty.) – SUCCESS! I made my mom an autumn wreath, because she’d mentioned in May that she didn’t have one. I am not crafty, but did this ALL BY MYSELF and I think it turned out okay. However, I bought waaaay more ingredients than I needed, and could probably make about 3 more. If I wanted to. Which I don’t. Anyone need fall flowers & leaves?

August 2012 Training Goals

  1. Run 6 continuous miles- FAIL! I was a sucky runner in August.
  2. Weekly swim (including at least half being open water swims) – 3/4 SUCCESS! I swam 3 times, with one OWS.
  3. Bike to work once/week (Tuesdays!) – 1/2 SUCCESS! I biked to work twice, but between the 1st & last weeks of August, I was suffering from bike-seat-bum-itis, and took a break from cycling.
  4. Core & weights weekly! – ha ha ha ha ha….whew! FAIL! I did get in one core workout the last week of August. No weights. No yoga.
  5. Start half marathon training – deferred success. I did not get into the half marathon I was planning on doing, so my current half marathon was 5 weeks later, which means that I don’t start half marathon training until the last week of September.

And now – on to September.
