Smarter alternatives to the classic New Year’s running resolutions
Before getting caught up in the frenzy, ask yourself: is your New Year's resolution realistic


It’s the time of year for reinvention and self improvement. As 2021 comes to a close, many runners (or soon-to-be runners) are plotting the list of resolutions they’ll tackle in the new year. Now that 2022 is here, motivation to achieve new goals is quite high. But with the whole new-year-new-you mentality, some of us can get a little too caught up in the frenzy and commit to a resolution that isn’t quite down to earth. Below are a few classic goals that people commit to on January 1 and alternatives that might make for a smart goal.

Lose weight
Instead try: Make a few solid lifestyle changes that could result in getting to a healthier weight. For example, think less about the number on the scale and more about getting adequate sleep, hydrating with water instead of sugary beverages and combing that Netflix time with something active like treadmill running.

Run a marathon
Instead try: Set your sights on a shorter distance earlier in the year with the intention to work your way up. For runners who have never been to a start line, a marathon may be too big of a jump. Committing to something like a 5K or 10K to get a sense of your personal interest and fitness level is to set yourself up for success.

Run every day
Instead try: If you’re not currently running or being active every single day, this is a major change to commit to. Most people don’t go from couch potato to avid runner overnight. To make the transition an enjoyable one, try something like upping your overall weekly mileage by a certain amount or sitting down and planning a workout schedule that fits in realistically with other obligations.

And Finally

Set realistic goals and don't be afraid to re-evaluate those as the year progresses. Positive and negative forces will come into play. Dealing with the changed realities in a logical effective manner will keep you on track to having an outcome that you will be satisfied or even very pleased with. Good luck with your smart training.
