Will changing my workout plans affect my goals?
If you are training for a marathon or a competition, considerhow this missed workout will affect that goal. Skipping the last long run before your racemight not be such a good idea. But ifyou are skipping a slow, easy run early in your training plan, and you’ve got a solid reason for doing so—as well as a game plan for how to achieve the bigger goal—that’s another story.
It’s also good to envision what it feel like to achieve your goal.
For Karen Tickner, a pilates instructor at Club Pilates, on days when her motivation is lagging, she will remember what it felt like in the past when she achieved a meaningful fitness goal.
“Usually, that feeling of accomplishment inspires me to get back on track with my mindset, and see my workout goal through that day,” Tickner said."
