Monday Motivation .. Setting some mini goals

About a month ago I posted that I registered for The Stampede. Big call that was!

Well the big even is just over a month away and I have been thinking that I had better start stepping up the training for it! I have been training semi-regularly training which will definitely keep me fit enough and strong enough to complete this crazy event, but I would like to be just that bit fitter and just that bit stronger, if only for my mental state!

Well I have set my goal but haven't as yet set out how I am going to achieve it! 
I've decided that I will take my training a week at a time and each week I'll set myself mini steps .. a fitness goal, a health goal and a lifestyle goal. 
Each of these mini steps I know will take me closer to my ultimate goal ... Getting crazy muddy on an obstacle course .. The Stampede!

I'm sharing with you now my mini goals for this week ...

My Fitness goal ... 4 - 5 training sessions per week.  Two of these strength ( full body strength and a cardio strength session including plyometrics ), two running sessions and a yoga session or light recovery session.

My Health goal ... Being a bit more strict with my diet.  Fueling my body for training and recovery and repair.  No more added extras!

My Lifestyle goal ... At least one yoga session which helps with flexibility and relaxation, besides I love it!  Get to bed before 10pm ( not happening tonight though .. ) And, as Mr FitMum is away this week, booking in some family date time!

Have you got a big goal that you would like to work towards? 
Have you set your plan for the steps you need to take to get there? 
Check out this post on SMART goal setting ...

Let me know how you are going!

Love the training program but The Stampede itself sounds horrendous... though a great achievement once you've done it I suspect!!!

Sounds like a good plan, life begins at 40 though :)
