What are your running goals for 2019? Most of the time we pick one or two goal races for the year and focus all our time and effort to rock those events. While it’s great to have specific race goals, we end up judging our year by how well we did on those two races. Normally, it either ends in thinking “Man, I crushed my goals. I’m amazing!” or “Running (insert distance or pace) just isn’t my thing. F*!#k it, I’m keeping it simple next year.” But WHAT IF you measured running success differently in 2019? What if you looked at your total mileage for the year to measure success? All those slow miles, all the short runs around the ‘hood for sanity, they all go towards your 2019 running goal. You even get to count the miles you logged in a race before you DNF. Now that’s a win.
Join rnnr’s 1000 mile crew on Strava to see how far you’ll go this year. We will be posting weekly/monthly goals to help you stay on track and run 1000 miles this year. Plus, it’s super simple to join in. If you don’t already have Strava, sign up. It’s free! Your smart watch will automatically upload your data to the club so all you have to do it run. If you don’t have a smart watch (or if it dies mid-run), you can manually enter your run in just a few clicks. Check out this Strava Support page to see what devices and platforms work with Strava and how to set it up. So, while you can still have your big “A” races this year, join rnnr and shoot for 1000 miles of road, trail and track this year.
