Say It, Do It December Style

by ashleyd on December 4, 2012

Just like that, November is over and it’s time to enjoy my favorite month of the year! This month is going to be one big whirlwind but I’m super excited already!

  • December 1st: OUC Half Marathon and Bachelorette weekend down in Orlando Check! (Per the above pic of me and Mary heading towards the finish, it was a great success and a lot of fun!)
  • December 8th: NYRR Jingle Bell Jog 4 miler and Our 3rd Annual Tacky Holiday Party
  • December 11th-13th: PADI Scuba training in the evening
  • December 15th: NYRR 15K
  • December 18th: Vermont
  • December 27th: St Croix

In order to kick off my 29th year in the best way possible, I thought it’d be fun to get back in the habit of doing Say It, Do It. Jes features this on her blog each week and it’s a great way to put weekly, attainable goals out for others to see and keep me motivated all week long.

Here are my workout plans for the week along with 2 goals for the week to keep me motivated!

  • Monday: Michelle’s Uplift Workit Circuit with Melissa
  • Tuesday: Heavy lifting personal training session + evening speed workout in Central Park with my work run club
  • Wednesday: Relaxed morning run with Theodora
  • Thursday: PM run with work run club
  • Friday: Fitness video shoot + yoga
  • Saturday: NYRR Holiday 4 miler
  • Sunday: rest

Goals for the week:

  • Set a new PR on Saturday during the NYRR Jingle Bell Jog 4 miler with Bo’s help
  • Focus on clean eating Monday through Saturday afternoon

Maybe I can also get a better race picture on Saturday as this one from last year’s race is pretty rough!

Your turn: What are your fitness goals this week?

Great idea! My goal for the week was to run to work for the first time ever. I hate sitting in traffic and the roads where I live are fairly safe for running…so I got up extra early this morning and clocked 7.5 miles before getting to the office. It hurt and it was freezing but I’m so happy that I did it! :) Have a great week!

I am also running this weekend so maybe I will see you out there! I am excited and thinking of what I am going to wear! I am thinking fun socks and antlers :-) That’s great your job has a run club; that might be something I would consider starting here at my job.

you are a racing machine!! get it girl!!

i think part of why I like posting my weekly workouts is the accountability, but just this week did I start saying my goal for the following week. so smart

I just ran a marathon on Sunday (well, it was super windy and rainy, so I just took it easy and made it a fun run). I’m going to take it easy this week with lots of yoga and weightlifting instead of running a lot.

Oh my gosh Michelle, did you run the California marathon? I heard they had crazy weather! I think taking it easy after a marathon is a GREAT idea!
