Hey Friends! How’s it goin?
For today’s Friday Feature, I thought I’d share some things from my fitness bucket list. I’ve already crossed of some things from the master list, like rock climbing and running a 5K but I haven’t done anything lately.
I want to at least to get these five out of the way within the ext year, so I thought if I shared them with you, I might actually do some of them. Accountability right?
My Fitness Bucket List 07/2014 – 07/2015
1. Run a
half marathon 10K
When I first wrote out my fitness bucket list last summer, I was hot and sweaty about running – no pun intended – and I was sure I’d be up for training for a half marathon by now. But honestly, this should be ‘Become a Runner’ because even a 10K is aiming too high right now. I’m seriously almost back at my ‘kill-me-now’ running point. I just can’t seem to get into running again this summer but I’m leaving it on there cuz there’s always hope right?
2. Take a Barre Class
I read about these things everywhere and I really want to try one! There aren’t any studios in Waterloo that I’m aware of but I do know of some in Toronto. One of my friends has a relative that works at one of the studios so I’ve got an in 😎
3. Take an outdoor yoga class
There’s just something about doing yoga outside early in the morning or late at night that seems so peaceful to me. This might have to wait until next summer though. The only outdoor yoga classes I’ve found in Waterloo happen during the day on weekdays, and I’m working right now 🙁
4. Run an obstacle course race
Is that what they’re called? Races like Tough Mudder and Spartan? Whatever they’re called I want to do one! I know I’ll have to ramp up my training before I sign up for one, but it’ll be worth it I think. #MightyGiselle anyone?
5. Do 3 sets of 10 pull ups
This is probably my most specific goal for the next year, but it’s been on my fitness bucket list forever. I can maybe do 5/6 pullups straight on a really good day when all the stars and planets are aligned just right. But most days I’m lucky to get in 2 in a row. My mission is to change that!
And just because, here are some cool fitness related things that I’ve seen recently
