Goal Setting

A little rundown on how I use Goal-Setting to improve my performance.

  1. Dream Goals –These are generally several years away and sometimes difficult to achieve. But I still make them andย  slowly work towards them.
  2. Intermediate Goals – This where I want to be at a specific time. An example of this is wanting to reduce your PB within the next 2-3months.
  3. Short Term/Daily Goals – This is the most important step for me. Writing down my Training Schedule each week and To Do Lists each day! This provides me a with a good framework to focus on my training sessions each day.

As important it is to set goals for competitions its equally important to set goals for practice sessions too ๐Ÿ™‚

That being said here are my upcoming Races I have to look forward to!

  • 4th September Bankstown Half Marathon (ill be doing the 5km at this event)
  • 18th September Blackmore Sydney Running Festival (Bridge Run 9.2km)
  • 16th October St George Bank Brighton Beachside Dash (5km or 10km)
  • 23rd October Rotary Club of Maroubra Fun Run (4km)
  • 6th November Rebel Sport Run4Fun (10km)
  • 13th November Bare Creek Trail Run (6km or 10km)

I didn’t beat my alarm this morning! So at 5:30am I was up and got ready to leave for my run.

I started off my workout with a 3km warm up run. Then Hill Sprints x7, I wasn’t that happy with this since last week I managed to do x8. But I redeemed myself and finished with a fast 2km run back home! Once I got home I moved on to do some Light Weights: Shoulder Press 15 reps x2, Side Raise 15 reps x2, Bicep Curls 20 reps x2.

Post Workout: Overnight Oats with Mixed Berries, Chopped Apple, Yogurt, Muesli

Morning Snack: Strawberries & Sultanas

I always finish the Strawberries first!

Lunch: Spinach + Tomatoes + Four Bean Mix, Zucchini Chips, Carrot Chips & Parfait

I’ve already pre-prepared my Dinner and Snacks for tonight since I will be out babysitting ๐Ÿ™‚

Afternoon Snack: Grapefruit + Strawberries

I hope Everyone is having a lovely week so far ๐Ÿ™‚

    Im always suprised when I dont wake before my alarm. I actually hate being woken by my alarm and much prefer to beat it and turn it off before its set.

  2. Oh man! I totally agree. I always like to beat my alarm and wake up beforehand, I feel a lot less tired! Good luck in your races! I’ll be sending postive vibes! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m a goal setter too, it helps me to know what I’m working towards and gives me better motivation! I love your categories! Have fun babysitting ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have the same method of goal setting! I like to have some “dream goals” that I’d be okay with not making, but if I did it would be simply amazing. I think daily goals are really important too. i like to be able to look back at the little successes in my day and feel good about what I’ve accomplished!
