Goals = Accountability

**Reminder - enter my giveaway HERE for a Runner's Race Bib Book!**

Accountability, aka guilt, is kicking in. Since my running plan of trying to maintain my miles without training for a specific race wasn't working, I decided to set the goal of completing 400 miles by the end of the year. I know this doesn't sound like a lot, but I really needed it to get my butt in gear. So far, it's working pretty well. I had a TON of stuff I could have done this morning before I went to work, and it was FREEZING outside. Great excuses, right? WRONG! I got my butt to the gym and cranked out 4 miles on the treadmill! Whoo-hoo :) If it wasn't for committing to the 400 miles, I don't know if I would have done this. Plus, it made it easier to eat those 2 cookies at work. Geez I need a lot of help this time of year!

Have a great one!

  1. Great job setting a goal and using it to motivate. That is awesome and you did a great 4 miles even though you could have given yourself excuses not to!!!
