In my last post, I wrote about making big changes one small step at a time. Read it here.
Today I thought I’d share how I’m practicing this for myself. One of my 2017 goals is to run. I have enjoyed walking, hiking and swimming, but I have never in my entire long life been a runner. Until this year. I have decided that this year I will run. I’ve set a goal for the running distance and a deadline for this achievement. But how do I go from never having run before to being a successful runner? One step at a time!
You may have heard of the Couch to 5k app. That’s what I’m using. With each guided workout, I get closer to my dream of being a runner. It’s working!
As well as those small steps, I look for easy ways to get closer to my goal. I make appointments with myself for my training sessions. I have mapped out the distance for my goal run. I make the sessions enjoyable by listening to an audiobook. The time flies by, and I now actually enjoy getting hot and sweaty.
What big changes are you working toward? And which small steps will you take to get there?
