Goals, goals, goals. They’re awesome little beasts. Race goals can push you to go faster, train longer or push harder (so many sexual innuendos there…). We’ve gone over the basics of good goal-setting before, but in the past couple of weeks we FBGs have been lamenting a lot about race goals and the “real” reason for doing events. FBG Kristen was touched at the support and encouragement at her Danskin Triathlon, and I, just a week ago, threw my 5K race goal out the window to enjoy the experience and not kill myself with the weather. Which got us wondering…are you stickler for race goals? Or more play-it-by-ear with how you feel and the race-day conditions? So tell us!
Obviously we do these types of endurance events to have fun and we always listen to our bodies, so I guess we’re in the “Yeah…” camp. Please feel free to elaborate on your answer in the comments, ladies! Would love to hear your thoughts about race goals! —Jenn
