Summer is here! While I am already tired of the heat (it’s been in the upper 80s for two months already) I am excited for summer fun and summer goals. The last couple months have been weird. I’ve been marathon training, vacation planning and all sorts of other bits and bobs.
This summer will be the first summer since 2014 that I haven’t been training for a fall marathon and I am stoked. No more super long runs in the summer heat that take up my weekends and more time for other things I enjoy. Whee!
This summer is also the start of some big changes for the Mr. and I. Not only are we traveling a lot less than previous years, but we are focusing on our fixer upper and doing lots of home improvement projects.
With all of that in mind I am pretty pumped about my goals for this month…
Paint Our Bathroom & Front Door
This will improve the space and change the vibe of the house. I don’t hate the color of the bathroom now, but I would really like to update it. Our front door just needs a fresh coat of paint to bring it up.
Mulch & Garden
I need to mulch my flower beds and maintain my garden. Easy enough!
Stay On Budget
The Mr. and I are buckling down on some of our extra expenses and trying to save back as much as we can for all of our home projects.
Document Basement & Kitchen Projects
Every time we update something in our house I kick myself for not taking pictures of the before product. We will be digging out our clay basement and starting the long process of getting it finished. We also hope to update our kitchen a bit this month so I want to document that as well.
Plan Out Workouts & Splits
Even though I’m not training for a fall marathon I will still be maintaining my aerobic fitness with maintenance miles. I look forward to creating a plan that includes more weightlifting, barre and yoga since running won’t be my only focus.
This month feels like a fresh new adventure and I couldn’t be more excited!
