Hot Tip Tuesday: Take Smaller "Bites"

You didn't think I'd write a post and then not leave a tip did you? Here is my hot tip for the week that goes along with my last post.

CUT YOUR GOALS UP IN TO SMALL BITES. Just like we're supposed to eat with smaller bites, it's much easier to accomplish your goals if its split into smaller steps.

For example, I am currently not looking at 13.1 miles (oh, Lord, help me) as my goal. I'm working on a "Couch to 5k" plan (I think that's around 3 miles) which will be accomplished by the end of March. Then within the C5K plan, I have weekly goals to accomplish. (C5K plans can be found all over the Internet)

Challenge: 1. Make a goal 2. Write it down 3. Split it into smaller less daunting pieces

I'd love to hear from you! What are your 2010 goals?

PS. If you've decided to lose your mind along with me and are interested in my running plan, send me an email and I'll send you a copy.
