New Year, New Goals

I know it’s a cliché but why not?

I’m actually not setting many performance based goals as I would like to hold on to the whole “enjoying running” thing. I would, however, like to finally break a sub 2:30 Half time. I know I can do it, on paper it looks so easy but actually out there running? Not a chance! I am too weak mentally. This is my first goal:

  1. Believe in myself. I can do it, I know I can do so prove it!
  2. Sub 2:30 half marathon – this goes hand in hand with the first one
  3. Enjoy myself – don’t beat myself up when I have a bad run. And finally
  4. Post a better full marathon time. I am still deeply disappointed in my first marathon finish time and that mainly came from lack of mental strength. My next one will be better!

Do you have running goals for 2018?

What are they?
