Even if you’ve never formally written down your running goals, you likely already have some, such as having a minimum number of workouts each week, or having a specific weekly mileage that you’re aiming for or even a goal of following a training plan leading up to race day. But, there is a good chance you have a specific running goal related to an event or time. For example, you might have a goal of running a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon, or maybe you simply have a goal of completing a half marathon.
