One more quick one for my A-Z blogging challenge.
July Goals. So if you recall - and I know you follow my blog so intently that you remember this with crystal clear detail - I set some Goals for July.
To date I had provided an update that I had indeed run 4 miles and I had indeed not only registered for, but completed my 5K. That left my average of one mile per day in July or 31 miles total.
So I set down and went to work with my calculator and Nike+ today to check out where I was and how I'm doing. Are you ready for this?
July goals - Check!
Works out really well since we are on vacation this week. I still want to run if I can, but my leg might need some rest after my 5 mile run the other day so we'll see I feel. But pretty awesome. I guess I need to figure out my goals for August now to prepare that post when we are back. I was originally going to target five miles...but, well I hit that, so we'll see. I need a few days to recover to figure out if I want to increase distance in August or perhaps work on time for a bit. I'll let you know.
Either way, as I mentioned in my goals post - specific, measurable, attainable goals. I was specific about what I wanted, they were measurable, and I attained them. Whoo hoo!
Just do it. I've always loved Nike's slogan. It's actually one of the reasons I got into marketing and went to school for it. I used to tell people that I wanted to be the person who wrote Just do It slogans. Well, I don't necessarily do that today...yet...but I still love the idea...and the slogan.
Just do it has been one of my running mantras. Do I really want to run today? Just do it, Amber. Can I do 4 miles - Just do it. Can I run a 5K - Just do it. Can I run 5 miles - Just do it. Sounding familiar? Mainly I use it as my inspiration to try. Don't question if I can - just do it. If I don't get the whole thing, at least I did something and tried. Anything is better than not doing anything and wondering if I could have.
So whatever your goals are - Just do it. Stop questioning yourself. Just do it.
