Sometimes I feel like all I focus on are running and yoga. I try to do other things, but with limited time running and yoga have sustained me. In fact, I’m so sore today from all the yoga I taught yesterday (including 30 cycles of Sun Salutations: aka burpees of the yoga world) that I sometimes wonder if I need something more…..
The answer is yes!
So, a really short list of three fitness goals for this year that aren’t for running or yoga, but will effect both.
- 25 full body push-ups. I haven’t done that many good ones since I was a freshman in college. I want to feel as good as I did when I was that young and fit. And I actually really like push-ups.
- In that same line of work….burpees. I haven’t ever really tackled them well, although I have made some attempts (see here). I don’t expect them to ever be easy, but I want to work on them. This also means going back to my HIIT workouts I used to do on Fridays and figuring out where they fit in.
- Finally, better squats. There are some articles in my inbox about squats and how to perform them correctly (apparently I was taught wrong at some point or science has changed).
My resolutions this year have mostly been intertwined and a lot of this involves becoming a better runner, yogi, and fitness professional. It involves turning inward and asking what I need, starting to push harder, and following through. It means that I am being appreciative and finding the good in the things that I do and the people that I do them with. I’m hoping that each of these tiny goals and steps forward will make 2016 my best year ever for health and wellness.
