What are your goals for the summer? Here are mine, they may surprise you.

Here’s a recent email I sent to our clients regarding their goals I think everyone may enjoy.

Hi Everyone –

I just got back from an awesome run that went better and longer than planned. I have such a sense of peace after a run like I just had. On the run I thought about what I wanted to say in this email. Some of it may surprise you. It’s a tad long, read it all anyway. If you don’t you may have to do 5 sets.

With summer approaching it’s time to start thinking about what your goals are so we can make sure your workouts are designed appropriately. It also gives a greater purpose to each workout.

So what are my goals? As everyone knows I have run goals and everything I do in regards to how I treat my body is targeted to make my run goals come to fruition. This includes how I eat and recover, as everything is targeted to put my body in the best place possible to be strong. There are, of course, obvious health reasons for this too.

My goals also center around lifting consistently. Here’s a confession. While I’ve been consistent with running, hiking, and some mountain biking I have not been consistent with my lifting. This may seem odd for a Trainer, but we are human too. So Why? you may be thinking. First and foremost, I haven’t felt like it. Also, when I lift it can fatigue my legs for running. I also am concerned about inflammation it can cause in my body. I know once consistent it will not affect my running, but will strengthen my running and also help prevent injury as I’ll be stronger and my body will work more efficiently. To limit inflammation I just have to follow strict progressions.

Now that I’m back to it I yearn for it again. So nice to have the yearning back! So there’s my confession and goals. So where do you want to head this summer? It may seem like a time to kick back and smell the roses. I can assure you it’s not. It’s time to dig deeper so you can create new experiences and memories this summer.

Dave
