How to Accomplish Running Goals

I want to talk to you today about something that is not just about running, but also how you live your life and accomplish your goals!

Time is of an essence!

Life's busyness robs us from things we love to do and make it very difficult to accomplish them.
Have you ever tried to focus on a something and failed to get it completed?
Goals are sometimes things that fall to the wayside...because they look so hard or out of reach!

Here are a few tips that will help you accomplish your goals.

Train for a 5K
  • Focus on what you really want. {Example: I want to run a marathon. I want to buy a new house. I want to get a new job. I want to lose weight.}
  • Find clear instructions on how to get to where you want! {Research, research and more research!}
  • Figure out what you are going to need (the ingredients) Just like a recipe!
  • Stay on track and follow where the map is going to take you, by making your schedule so you won't falter.
  • Start at the beginning and do it, following through to the end!
  • And last but not least...BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!!!
This is how you get to the end, because you are going to follow these tips and tailor them towards your goal.
It's just for you!

The # 1 Biggest Sabotage to Your Goal (by: RunningMyspace)

Is Fear, because fear gets in your way!!
  • Fear affects the foundation your goal is sitting on and can sometimes make everything you've worked for, fail!
  • Fear takes you away from having a clear goal.
  • Fear prevents you from scheduling important events that lead up to knowing...How?, When?, Where?, What? and so on... doesn't develop
  • Fear leads to hazy and unclear thoughts because of doubt. Fear has you moving through a fog not even knowing what is your problem. 
  •  The ingredients, the instructions and the map will be non-existent or confusing for you.
  • No goal is achieved!

Make sure you check in with yourself and ask, "Am I afraid?"
If you are... BREATHE, redo your goal and these steps to your goal.
Things won't look so intimidating.

Maybe do a 10K instead??

Get real with yourself and honest.
What do I want and how can I get it?
Be realistic and work on one goal at a time. Eventually you'll be able to work on bigger goals!
The fear of training for a marathon will not be as intense!

This very skill of learning how to go through steps to achieve the goal is so important.
I hope this article helps, especially for those of you who are in a slump.
