Weekly Goals - A Successful 5K

If you follow me on twitter, you might have seen that I signed up for my 1st 5K!!!

While this is definitely exciting, I'm such a newbie, even to running still that I have a lot to learn. In lieu of this new adventure, I wanted to see about setting some weekly goals to help me succeed!

This Week My Goals Are:

1. Run 5/7 Days
I'll be using the C25K app to start off with, even though I have a little less than SIX weeks to get ready.
2. Cut out Soda
I've done this before, so I know I can do it! I generally only have a few a week if any but cold turkey really is the way to go for me.
3. Develop a routine.
This is something I haven't done since college, probably. The only thing I've had to focus on the last year was work and now that I have that routine, I need to start setting a routine for the rest of my life instead of being so willy nilly.
4. Go to bed by 10:00 pm in preparation for an earlier time next week.
I actually did this last night and I felt so good, lol. Not that I woke up super refreshed, but I'm hoping by moving it earlier I will start to wake up without feeling tired. This will go along real well with the routine!

What about you, did you set some goals for yourself this week? What are some pointers you could give me for running my first 5K?

Hope you're having a great week so far! Aren't you glad Monday is OVER?!


  1. I need to START running. Maybe I will this weekend :)

  2. I must go to bed earlier and I must get back into my routine of exercise.
