April Challenge: One Goal This Month

22 Mar

A tough goal is never easy, but always worth it.

Sweat poured down my cheeks as my leg muscles burned and I could only ingest sips of air. No, I wasn’t dying nor was I lost in some desert. And yes, this is self-imposed. I was in the middle of a spinning class today…and I felt great afterward! I realized after class that I had been avoiding my┬ámax effort for a long time unless sporadically in a race or competition. I never back down to challenges and I always try to work to my best effort in workouts (or so I thought), but I realized my max effort was steps ahead of me. I would stop short of my “All out” because of the discomfort and frankly, I didn’t feel the need to torture myself.

Unfortunately, I will begin to plateau in my progress by staying on the edge of my comfort zone and if I ever want to do another race or competition or continue to perform at my best, I need to keep pushing myself to my highest level (only sometimes – no need for burn out!).

So I decided to create a group April challenge for all of us. Let’s tackle one challenge this month that has been out of reach for you, either because you just don’t like the idea of attempting it, you have found outside excuses as to why you cannot go after it, or you just haven’t had the motivation until now. I would love to pick another goal of mine that I am looking forward to but I’ve decided to pick a goal that is tougher for me: diving into two to three times per week of high intensity work (at a group training class like OTF, a spin class, outdoor run, or whatever I feel like that week).

Write below or share on my Instagram wall @ChristySiebert your one goal you want to tackle this month. It could be kicking a nagging habit, finding time to take a few quiet breaths, entering a race or competition, eating more protein, whatever you want to accomplish! I also want you to write your goal on a post-it, in a journal, on a notepad, etc. for your daily visual. I’ll be there with you this month and let’s have this one goal dominated by April 30th!
