Last week, I posted about Why you should set a Big Hairy Goal.
Today I am going to offer some tips to help achieve that goal:
1. Create a Schedule
Don’t leave running to chance, Post your schedule where it is easily accessible (paper calendar, online calendar, etc.) And stick to it.
2. Eliminate Barriers
Lay your clothes out the night before you’re due for a morning run. Bring your clothes to the office if you are running after work.
3. Enlist an Accountability Partner
Find a running partner or a coach or someone to check in with regarding your runs and progress toward your goal.
4. Eliminate Distractions
If checking social media before a run decreases the likelihood that you go on said run, save that for a post-run. Same with walking a dog. Do it at another time or have someone else in your household do it so you can run.
5. Plan a Reward
What ever it takes to give you that added motivation. Food, New clothes, a Trip, etc.
Happy Running! Are you a “BIG” goal setter? Any other tips to add? Please share.
