Setting a goal and actually trying to accomplish it can be a rewarding experience. I was thinking last night of what my goals were for my running, my weight loss, for 2FNS. Where does it stop? When do I achieve my goal? When can I sit back and relax knowing that I accomplished what I set out to do?
Then it hit me. I will never be done. Fitness is a life long struggle that is never-ending. Depressing? I don't think so. For me it is exciting because I can always improve, always achieve more, always press forward.
I want to set some goals, some short-term, some medium, and some long.
Short term, I want to increase my mileage each week steadily. The past few weeks have been a downward trend, and I want to change that. I want to add 1k each week without fail.
Medium term, I want to develop 2FNS as a gateway to accountability and community. I realized that if only two or three people use it consistently, the effort I put in and the things I learn along the way will surely be worth it. If I can help make a difference in those two or three people's lives, then I'll be happy.
Long term, I want to continue posting Maps with 2FNS progress. My goal is to work across New York State, visiting each place where a current user lives, then head out to Boston, then down to Washington DC. I'll need your help with this guys, so please report your cardio workouts. It will take me a long time by myself.
