January is already coming to a close. So we wanted to check in and make sure you have the tools to make 2023 your best year of fitness. Check out our latest Strava club post to learn about tools like goals and monthly stats to keep you on track. What goals have you set for 2023?
Well for me I have a few goals
However the best goal is to have fun and enjoy it!
Thanks for sharing @VikK - you are crushing those goals already especially with that Parkrun goal. Impressive. Your last goal is definitely the best one I totally agree. Hope it's lots of fun marking those goals off your list for 2023.
Overall: training is going really well! Running every day, training for LA Marathon, and I just plugged in my annual goal into Strava. It is telling me that I need to run more to hit my goal 😂😅 I will try to hit the same volume this week.
How about you?
@Shant Thanks for sharing how it's going. Sounds like you're making good progress on your LA Marathon goal and finding some tools to keep you motivated and on track.
With all the daily running I wonder if you've taken a look at the Recover app for some pre and post run recovery exercises? There's an excellent Insider Journal article: Discover Recover that you might like. We'd love to hear more if you've used it and what has worked for you. Good luck in your preparations for the marathon next month. 👟
I have used the Recover app, but not as consistently as I want. I need to do it more as prehab.
Last year, I used Recover a month before CIM when I felt like I was about to get injured. The videos for hamstring specifically helped me and then I started doing the recovery exercises without using the app. I like how it allows athlete to select what they are interested in, but need to use it more to get better understanding. I wish the videos were integrated into Strava directly as a reminder to use the app.
Currently, doing easy night walks as active recovery in between running days.
@Shant Thought you might be interested in this post. You shared some of your goals in our Tuesday Chat with Team Strava and we would love to hear how it's going and which Strava tools help you stay motivated and on track.
