Find Your Focus

What’s your "thing” this year? Do you want to work on your speed for shorter distances, or build up your endurance for longer runs? Do you want to run more trails or focus on roadwork? Instead of spreading yourself too thin, trying to do everything, pick one area to be your main focus for the year. If you want to focus on speed, spend more time doing interval, fartlek, or tempo training and forgo longer runs. You’ll be more likely to accomplish your goals this way, which will leave you free to focus on accomplishing a new one next year!
