Setting Race Goals

Before you head to the start line of your next race, be sure you have goals set!  Whether you are newbie or defending age group champ- it is important to know what you are trying to do when you compete.  Before all of my client's race, I have them send me their A, B and C goals as described below:

C Goal- One that you should pretty easily be able to achieve, barring any unforeseen circumstances.  You will be happy if you achieve this.  (ie- finish the race- for a beginner)

B Goal- A challenging goal that is possible, but things will need to go well and it might be tough.  You will be really excited if you reach this goal.  (ie- finish the entire race without walking)

A Goal-  A "better than you really think you can do, but if you do you will be super-duper ecstatic goal!"  Everything will need to fall perfectly into place- weather, nutrition, sleep, etc to achieve this.  (ie- run the entire race and break 30 minutes for my first 5K)

Follow this practice the next time you race, and start knocking out those goals!
