How to setup goals?
June 23rd, 2015 11:05 PM
I had a very good strength workout this morning. I ran 2 miles warm up, then 3 miles with pace of 7:20 per mile. Easy run for another mile. Then another 3 miles for the pace of 7:15 per mile, then 2 miles cool down.

After the workout, I had a question for myself, what would be the pace for me to run Santa Rosa Marathon the end of August?

For the Marathon pace, we need to run slower than half marathon; and run half marathon slower than 10k. But recently I felt like I can run a little bit faster, then what kind of target race should I run?

Normally we will have a tune-up race. So in Oct & Nov, I have an half marathon, based the finish time of those two races, then I will adjust my running pace for Dec marathon.

Then the question is how about the August Santa Rosa Marathon? I think I will play safe. I will just use a slower pace to complete it and reach my goal of BQ for the finish time of 3:23.

So basically, you can tell, we will adjust based on the fitness level during the training. And I will also adjust the training pace as well.

It reminds me of the goals for my clients. I have some clients who have 5/1 ARM rate of 2.625%. And when I told them it might be hard for them to get those rates. And they would tell me that's my goal. But things changed. Though I still think Fed will not increase the interest rate too much, but the lowest rate is gone. We can not get those low rates any more. So then we need to adjust the goal.
