Plan for Sprint #5!

November! The gloomiest month (at least in Finland) is here! What I’m planning to do during this month to achieve my targets? Find here in a usual manner my plan for the sprint / month!

Running:

My main target is to heal my foot so that I can continue running with good feeling. In addition to that, I aim to continue running according to my program and to run the Cooper test to find out my current running condition!

Yoga:

I’m aiming to achieve also my last missing third level pose: Splits. This will require a lot of stretching and practicing, and being an active runner at the same time is not making it very easy as it makes my legs once a while very stiff ; ) In addition to finishing the 3rd level poses, I want to quickly test out all the 4th level ones to have an idea how close / far I am on achieving those.

Wellbeing:

This sprint is all-about fixing my diet and finding the energetic feeling. I want to e.g. find out if eating according to my body type (mesomorph) will suit me well. In addition to that I want to get rid of the awful sucker obsession that has been bothering me during 2018. Though I realize that time before Christmas is not the best to start fighting against sucker – and it might also result to the fact that I need to pick this task up again after Christmas to get rid of the sucker-high that it might cause. But on the other hand, this might be exactly best tie of the year to acknowledge this fact and try to avoid that eating sucker gets completely out of hands due to the fact that there is lot of possibilities for that during the Christmas times ; )

Below you can find again more detailed and measurable tasks that I’m going to work with during the upcoming month. So wish me luck… or even better: motivation : )

Sprint #5 Plan

My plan for Sprint #4 + the Second Period

My 4th Sprint on my 365-day journey has already started, and is progressing full speed ahead! I did the plan on what I want to achieve already some time ago, and now I finally have the time to update it also here!

As at the same time this is the beginning of a whole new period, it was also time to do some forward looking planning and decide objectives for the next 3 month Period and then break it down to more detailed tasks. These tasks then describe what I need to do in more detail during each sprint to achieve my targets by the end of the period. In case you are interested to know more about this planning method, read more form my earlier post which describes “how to make your targets achievable” .

Main themes for my Period #2 are following:
  1. Achieving my second running related sub-target: Running a half-marathon by the end of the period.
  2. Increasing my yoga time and moving to practice level 4 poses (out of 5 levels in total)
  3. Focusing on my wellbeing by fixing my eating habits a.k.a macros and sucker cravings and thus returning back a Fresh feeling.

If I manage to achieve these Period #2 targets, it means I will be moving in good phase towards my final end goals!

New program

You can find the end result of my more detailed plan from the below table which sums-up both my tasks for the on-going sprint #4 as well as for the 2 up-coming sprints. And as usual – this will be a living document and it will be updated according to how reality hits me during the Period – as it very much did during Period #1 : )

Wish me luck : )
