I recently posted this picture on my social media and a dear friend suggested that I share its importance and relevance on my blog, so here is goes…
Not only is this a perfect example of my type A personality, it is a HUGE motivator for me to reach my #1 micro goal this year- to run 500 miles in 2019. I call it a “micro” goal, because it is a stepping stone for my ultimate goal of running a marathon.
Running has been the bane of my existence for as long as I can remember. I have always had a difficult time with breathing while running and I always just gave up.
Recently I realized that I AM DONE GIVING UP! It doesn’t matter how slow I go, as long as I don’t stop. So, I downloaded the 13.1 app on my phone (I’ll be downloading the 26.2 app when i am done with this one!) and I run 4-5 days per week. I have found something that works for me! This app breaks down the runs into intervals that gradually get longer over time so I am easing into the deep end.
Regardless of how I’m doing it, I AM DOING IT! I get excited about coming home and running on my run days! ME!!!! 😳 And I haven’t died during any runs…yet! But seriously, folks, if I can do it, what the hell is your excuse??
What is your #1 goal (fitness, work, nutrition, personal…whatever!)?
What 3 micro goals do you need to reach to get there?
Now, find what works for YOU and go after it! Run, walk, crawl if you must, but don’t stop!
And find a way to visually track your progress- you’ll be surprised how motivating it is!
Now GO, scoot, get out there and make those goals your bitch!
