2020 is just around the corner! Our athletes are getting pumped thinking about next year; the races they want to win, making the podium and getting faster, better and stronger. This week's blog post is about how to set goals that are S.M.A.R.T.
The acronym "S.M.A.R.T," is often used in the realm of Physical Therapy (PT). PT's will work with their patients to create S.M.A.R.T goal(s) to essentially help them build: strength, mobility, and lead healthier, pain-free lives. S.M.A.R.T stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. The goal of S.M.A.R.T is to incorporate all of these criteria to help focus your efforts and increase your chances of achieving your goals.
What does this look like in the context of 2020 racing goals? Below is an example:
S.M.A.R.T. goal: To place top 5 at USA Individual Time-Trial Championships (Women's Pro)
S.M.A.R.T goal setting is a fantastic, organized way for an athlete and coach to create goals. Now is the perfect time to meet with your coach and start the process. Learn more about our coaching services here.
