Happy Friday! I’m waiting at the airport for my flight so it’s the perfect time to think about my weekend goals. Run Eat Repeat taught me a thing or two about setting a/b/c goals for my races. I usually
set change my goals to make myself feel better when I’m done running a race. I thought this time I would hold myself accountable and really stick with my goals…and find another way to make myself feel accomplished after a race.
My “A” goal: I didn’t get my 2:14 last week so I’ll still be pushing for 2:14 or better.
My “B” goal: To start my race out slow and steady. I usually take off in a race situation really we’ll but on my solo runs lately I’ve noticed I’ve started too fast. Plus, I don’t really want the altitude to force me to walk. I didn’t think about the altitude when I signed up for this race.
My “C” goal: To finish the race in enough time for me to relax a little and catch my flight back home. I should have booked my return flight for Monday, but I didn’t. That only means I’ll be reunited with my husband sooner. 🙂
I am also excited to spend the time with my mom, my best friend, my lil nephew and my honorary mom. They all love me so much to fly to Denver to spend time with me because my running schedule keeps me busy!
What are you doing this weekend? Do you have a race? What are your goals?
