Deal of The Week: How to reach goals

Do you make deals with yourself? I seem to do it on a daily basis. It’s how I negotiate outcomes that I might not be able to do daily.

Today’s deal is that I need to follow my 50 mile training plan from today to Sunday. Exactly. Just miles on my feet. That’s it – easy – right? Well, not exactly. This is what the training week  looks like:

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Actual Miles Scheduled Miles
0 2 4 6 0 14 8 34 34

The deal of the week is that I just need to do it:  make it happen or drop out of the 50 Mile race in June.

I have a lot of experience of dropping out of races before and during. While it is difficult to do and I wrestle my brain and ego for hours and days, at the end of the the day I’m a realist. I have big dreams and big plans, and I believe that I can do anything I set my mind to. However,  I’m a realist and practicalist.

So here we go….. let’s get this training done, recover, figure out the vegan recovery food and get to Wachusett Mountain trail run in June.
