What do you do when you have goals and you reach them? Do you make new goals for yourself or do you stay content with where you are? But aren’t there limits and if so how do we know how far to go or when enough is enough. Some people are content with where they are in life and others are constantly trying to keep up with everyone and even try to become number 1.
I myself have set goals constantly especially when it came to running. At first I told myself that I would run a 5k race and then I told myself I would run a 15k, then a half marathon. But do I stop here or do I train to run a full marathon. I wonder if I would set to do a triathlon after I complete my full marathon. Sounds like alot huh. How much is enough??
Knowing your limits and challenging yourself are two different things in my opinion. I know that I can only do so many reps of deadlifts at a certain weight and If I tried to do more I could possibly hurt myself. I know my limits. Setting challenges for yourself is training for a 5k, 15k, half marathon and so forth or setting to lose 1-2 pounds a week.
Everyone is different and we should not try and live our lives or workout a certain way because someone else is. Do what works for you and listen to your body. I know so many athletes who injure themselves because they try and keep up with the next person. Make small goals in order to get to the big goal!
We all have limits but setting realistic goals for yourself will help you stay injury free and keep you healthy mentally. We all have to run our own race and no one else can do it for us. Work hard, eat good, sleep well helps to make a stronger you.
Are limits a good thing or bad thing? Respond back with your take on this topic.
