I’m a goal-oriented person. I stay more focused when I’m driving towards something. I typically start most of my weeks with a to-do list. When I started running races a few years ago, I immediately scoured the internet for training tips and plans/goals. As we enter into December, I have decided to set a few running goals for myself for the month.
Obviously, I recognize the holiday season can be very busy, but I’m hoping this will push me to maintain balance.
- I am running the Dopey Challenge in January 2016 (48.6 miles over 4 days, which includes a marathon on January 10). So this month I have two 20 mile training runs in addition to quite a few back to back runs. My first goal is to stick to my training plan!
- Currently, I have run 1070 miles for the year. My goal is to try to hit 1200 miles (an average of 100 miles per month) for 2015.
- I want to work more on my core. This is where I struggle the most during my longest runs. My goal is to do a 1 minute plank each day in addition to ab workouts.
- (Non Running Goal) Since I started this blog a few weeks ago, I’ve been good about blogging 5-6 times week. My final goal is to continue to blog at least 3-4 times a week.
Do you like to set goals for yourself?
