I have set my sites at running 1200 miles over the course of 2015. That is 100 miles a month.
Here is how I plan to keep track of those miles
- I bought a new basic garmin to keep track of my day to day miles
- I bought a $1 daily planner to write my miles in each day
- I am also joining a friend in her fun way to keep track and reward ourselves when we reach our goals
My something really fun
Before even mentioning my goal to my redhead running friend she mentioned she has set a goal of running 1000 miles in 2015 and is going to transfer pennies from one jar to the next to keep track.
I decided that would be such a fun visual way to keep track that I have to join her, but I still need to get my jars and pennies (it is on my to do this week list).
Our plan is to enjoy a girlfriend weekend away if we both transfer each and every penny into our “miles ran jar”.
One exception to my goal
Due to a knee that keeps acting up now and again, I am allowing myself to count walking and eliptical miles when needed although my hope is that these miles will not add up to more than 25% of my total miles over the year.
My plan to share it with you
Once a month I will share a picture of my jar on Instagram, and here on the blog as part of my Snapshot Thursdays. This will help keep me accountable to my goal and I hope it will inspire some of you to join us.
You can also join my Snail Pacing Goal Achievers Facebook group where I will be sharing my goal updates and you can share yours and get encouragement and tips.
Set a goal to walk, run, bike, swim, or ??? so many miles in 2015. Or perhaps you rather set a goal for working out so many days a week , or a goal to attend so many fitness classes over the course of the year. Figure out a way to keep track and decide what your prize will be at the end. If you use jars make sure to take a Instagram pic and tag me @snailpacetransformations, so I can cheer you on.
