Setting Goals

Setting goals for yourself is a great way to keep you motivated, moving forward in a positive direction and boost your confidence. The goals need to be achievable based on your own skills and abilities but also need to push yourself a little further. Remember: You are only competing with yourself.

My goal is August was to run 3km a day.

Revising goals is okay when you realize that your original goal was maybe too ambitious.

A week into August I realized that running every day was a little ambitious. After missing a few days I didn’t just give up on my goal, I revised my goal to run 93km in total in August, which is equivalent to 3km a day, allowing myself to miss a day and just double up another day.

Here I am, last day of August and I pushed myself and achieved my goal!
