Now is the best time to start preparing for your 2020 running goals. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, run your first 5k or run a PR in your next marathon, here are some tips to ensure you not only reach but exceed your goals.
- Choose specific goals: Write down your goals that you’d like to accomplish. Examples include “finish a 5k AND have fun”, “run a sub 3:30 marathon” or “lose 20 pounds and run injury-free all year”. A good coach will help you choose attainable goals which will keep you motivated and on track to succeed.
- Have a well designed plan: In order to accomplish your goals, you need to have a plan that is proven to work AND personalized for you. The plan must be realistic and work with your schedule and lifestyle in order to be successful.
- Stick to your plan: This part can be tricky for many people because of injuries, lack of motivation and time constraints. You don’t need to stick to your plan 100%, in fact you shouldn’t have to. But you do need to put the work in and stay motivated. You should see gradual improvement and have fun doing so. This is where a professional coach designing personalized training plans will help you greatly.
- Execute and exceed your goals: Now that you’ve been the time into training, you’ll want to make sure your race or specific goal is accomplished. Knowing specific tips and using the latest scientific techniques will help you do just that. The right coach will give you the confidence you need and tips to not only reach your goals but exceed them.
