This week, I am jumping back in and I am linking up with Kookyrunner and Zenaida for Tuesday Topics. Today we’re talking about our 2021 mid-year review. Well, to be honest, I haven’t really set too many fitness goals for this year. After everything got derailed in 2020 and races were postponed and then postponed again, I went into 2021 with a totally open mindset.
I knew that I wasn’t going to sign up (or train) for any in-person races until I felt comfortable with where we were at in the pandemic (and I am still not ready) and so my main goal for this year was to trudge along, stay healthy/injury-free and continue to be consistent with my workouts. The only pledge I made to myself at the beginning of the year was to complete a 365 Peloton streak. It felt like something I could commit to and that was totally in my control.
I am happy to report that my Peloton streak is going strong and I am on day 187/365, as of today.
I’ve been consistently using the Peloton App since August 2020, I bought a (non-Peloton) spin bike in September and I’ve been taking advantage of their whole array of classes. I rode about about 750 miles on my spin bike (which as we all know is a very vague estimate from a speed sensor, but whatever, it’s a number!), which came out to 50.5 hours of cycling for this year so far.
I also hit the 200 ride milestone with my friend Tanja last weekend.
I’ve also been ramping up my (outdoor) running again in the last few months and wouldn’t be opposed to getting on a training plan for another half marathon. I have been running some decent paces and would love to keep up the momentum. I am currently at 235 running miles for the year (which isn’t all that much, but I am hoping to hit 600 by the end of 2021).
All in all, I am quite happy with how things are going. I’ve stayed injury-free, I am moving my body every day and I am planning to continue on this path.
How’s your year going so far?
