How is it already March 31? It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the new year and looking forward to new adventures in 2015. With the passing of these first three months of 2015, it is time for me to reflect on the intentions that I set for myself for 2015.
- Believe…I am definitely believing more and more every day in myself, my training and my abilities. A perfect example of this happened last week when I was not sure I would be able to finish my Lucky 7s run as scheduled, but it turned out to be my #FaveWorkout because I mentally overcame barriers allowing myself to believe in my abilities and finish this workout mentally and physically strong. I want to improve upon this belief in myself by spending 5 minutes every evening focusing on my strengths, positive visualization and mantras to help me with mental strength and focus.
- Break down barriers…I am trying to organize and start a women’s only ride in Ames this summer on Monday evenings. I am hoping this will allow more women to become comfortable with cycling, provide them with a community of women who have similar interests, broaden their horizon on safe local cycling routes and educate them on a variety of different cycling topics. I have a lot of ideas for this…now I just need women who want to branch out of their comfort zone and ride 🙂
- Be Present…I am going to be honest…I struggle with this. I am always thinking about what is next and planning for the future. I need to slow down and be more mindful of the here and now.
Did you set intentions for yourself for 2015? Have you checked in lately to see where you are at with your intentions? What is going well? What do you still need to improve upon?
