August in Review

Well it appears to be a trend with my monthly reviews.  I am literally squeaking this one in on the last day of the month!  I will have to turn around and do a September in review later this week as well as my race report from the 1/2 marathon I ran last weekend.

August 2015 Stats
96.91-- running miles
5.43-- walking miles

0--biking miles

0-- stair workouts
0- monthly fitness challenge workout
102.34-- total miles

Current 2015 Stats
671.75-- running miles
35.47-- walking miles

2-- biking miles
3-- stair workouts
4 3/4-- monthly fitness challenge workout
709.22-- total miles

2015 Mission check-in

Mission #1: Complete 6 monthly challenges
Action Plan: Find monthly challenges online.
Action Plan: Actually complete the monthly challenge.
Mission #1 did not happen in August.  I really need to get on this if I'm going to complete this mission!!

Mission #2: Cross off at least 3 more states in Deb, Nikki, and I's quest to run a 1/2 marathon in all 50 states (we have 36 states left....we best get moving...we aren't getting any younger!!)
Action Plan: Research 1/2 marathons in the states we haven't completed yet.
Action Plan: Actually register and participate in said 1/2 marathons.

So far we have completed AL, AZ, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, NV, OH, PA, TN, and TX
Mission #2 didn't make progress in August but it did in September.  Stay tuned for that in my September review.  Looking into finding a December race to run to complete this mission!
Mission #3: Run 1000 miles in 2015
Action Plan: Run.
Action Plan: Run some more.

Mission #3 came in at 96.91 miles run for August (328.25 miles to go).  Slow and steady with this mission. 

Mission #4: Complete 4 stair workouts per month (*Edited in February to read complete an occasional stair workout*)
Action Plan: Do one stair workout per week.
Mission #4 continued to be a flop in August.  My goal is to find a "stair workout" challenge for one of these months.

Mission #5: Cook more and eat healthier
Action Plan: Plan ahead with recipes and food prep.
Action Plan: Utilize my crockpot more often.
Mission #5 continues to go in the right direction and I can't complain.  There are still times when we don't eat at home but we have really been trying hard in this area.


Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
