(Disclaimer: I totally stole this idea from my friend Danielle, but she's really nice so I doubt she'd care.)
In my mind, I've had some flexible goals set for this whole Couch to 5K adventure, but to be honest I'm surprised I've even lasted to week three so I haven't given much thought to my goals. I think it's a good idea to put them in writing to hold myself accountable. My current goals aren't necessarily associated with a specific amount of weight loss, but primarily focused on getting through the 9-week program...even if it takes me longer than 9 weeks!
Goal #1: If I make it to week 5, buy a new pair of good running shoes.
Goal #2: If I make it through the program and sign up for a 5K race, buy a cool running outfit because I definitely run in sloppy, baggy clothes.
Goal #3: If I go through with the 5K race, I'm going to treat myself to a pedicure. I realize that a pedicure is not really a "treat" for many women, but because I can do my own nails at home, I rarely fork over the cash to have a professional do it for me. So, for me...a pedicure is a fun treat!
