It feels like only yesterday I was writing and sharing my August goals. And now, the month is over? I wish months like February and March came and went this fast, not just the wonderful summer months! I don’t typically make monthly goals, but I came pretty close to keeping on top of mine for August. First off, I had a pretty good month mileage-wise. Here’s how I ended up – almost 143 miles!
And here’s how it went in terms of my goals:
Goal: Stay injury free — success! Still feeling good.
Goal: Keep up the running (3-5 miles most days of the week) — success! Looking back, I only ended up not running one day of the month, and otherwise, I averaged 4-5 mile a day.
Goal: Get in 2-3 “long” runs (6 or more miles) — success! I got in 3 during the month.
Goal: Get in 2-3 stroller runs while the weather is still nice — I got in 2 stroller runs, which is fewer than I would’ve liked.
Goal: Continue with my diastasis recti abdominal repair exercises — I did these almost every weekday, taking weekends off.
Overall, I feel really good about meeting last month’s goals. Here’s how last week looked – I tried to finish off the month strong, despite some morning challenges (a.k.a not getting up with my alarm; see below):
Sunday: 6 total miles – I ran a few miles by myself, then a mile with FW and then a shorter run with LM to total about 6 miles. I love when my kiddos want to run with me!
Monday: 4.22 miles plus DR exercises.
Tuesday: 5 miles plus DR exercises.
Wednesday: 5.3 miles plus DR exercises – but almost didn’t make it at all!
I somehow had slept through my alarm but then woke up with about 30 minutes to spare. I fit in a short run before getting the kids ready for the day. Then, I did a 20 minute run and my DR exercises during my lunch break – so it all worked out!
Thursday: 4 miles plus DR exercises
I also slept through my alarm on Thursday. I need to stop staying up so late and reading – it makes me somehow ignore my 4:30 alarm. I swear it’s unintentional!
Friday: 6 miles
Saturday: 2 miles run/walk
Total: 33.06 mi running
Some questions for you:
- How did your August go?
- Any races planned for September?

Your Augusts saw some nice numbers, and great job with your consistency. I totally agree with what you said about the colder months…I wish they went MUCH faster and we had a couple extra bonus months of summer in exchange.
Yay on reaching your August goals! I am trying to fight off injuries. Now that my feet are happy, my hip is cranky. ~sigh~
Your littles are so cute!
wow those are some impressive August numbers. I always feel like August is challenging with the heat but we get it done.
Sounds like you nailed your August goals! I have the same issue with staying up too late reading. It’s irresistible- everyone else is in bed and I can FINALLY read uninterrupted.
August was ok. September is starting out ok. We had some things come up that kind of got in the way of running and goals, but what can you do?
You’re great at fitting it in when you can, 30 min in the morning, 20 mins over lunch- I love it! Great month!
Way to go on your August goals. You had an amazing month especially considering the heat we had.
