It’s that time again, time to carefully consider what we should do in 2020 to take our running and our lives to the next level. Since the options for running resolutions are almost infinite, I thought I’d provide some insight into the advantages of some types of resolutions and the pitfalls of others.
In this episode of the Mojo for Running Podcast, I discuss goal of more miles than you’ve done before, the goal of a longer distance than you’ve ever run before, the goal of maintaining a running streak, and the goal of aiming for a PR.
Beyond that, we’ll look at other kinds of goals I recommend you pursue, non-running goals.
Above all else, you need to set a meaningful goal. Some will plan to do 2,020 miles. But, why? Seriously, it’s just a number that happens to be the year, but what would be your reason for wanting to do that number of miles?
Please give this some thought. Besides being meaningful, your goal should be reasonable, achievable. Then, you should start thinking about the process goals you’ll need to achieve to get you to your goal. Hopefully, this episode will give you some ideas and guidance.
