Back in September I made a list of all of the fitness-related activities that I wanted to accomplish in the future, aka my “fitness bucket list“. After registering for the Chicago Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon and buying the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga DVD I was able to cross off 2 of the items on the list. However, as of today, I am also able to cross off 2 more items!
First of all, I brought a bike from home to Chicago to use in the summertime to ride around the city to places like the beach and farmers markets. I still need to buy a lock and put some air in the tires, but I officially have a bike to ride! Secondly, tonight during an easy run for my training I ran a 8:57 minute mile, which means I can cross off my goal of running a sub-9 minute mile! It felt so great to accomplish this and wasn’t nearly as difficult as I originally thought it would be; I must be doing something right with my training!
Here’s a quick recap:
Run a half marathon – well, not quite DONE yet, but well on my way!
- Try Bikram yoga
Buy a bike to ride around the city
- Swim with dolphins
- Do indoor rock climbing
- Learn how to ski
Run a sub-9 minute mile
- Go snorkeling
- Kayak down the Chicago river
- Run a race in another city
Buy a fitness DVD
- Go parasailing
- Complete a triathlon
I hope to have another 2 of these completed by September; crossing off almost half of the items after 1 year of making the list would be quite the accomplishment!
What are your fitness goals this summer?
