When you are nearing your race you will be able to start to plan your goals. One idea is to target three time based goals:
- A stretch goal, you would be absolutely delighted to achieve this goal. You recognise that all the conditions on race day would be 100% to reach this.
- Goal that you would be happy with and deem the race as a success, you bring away some key learnings to help you for your next race.
- You survived! Made it to the finish line and learnt some lessons along the way, this is normally a "greater than" time.
Targeting separate goals that are relevant to you and your progress can also be useful, for example:
- Nail your nutrition
- Fast through transition
- Negative splits
- Raise 'X' amount for charity
