Earlier this week, I posted about how to keep yourself accountable. If you want to watch the YouTube video – it’s a short one – you can check it out here (and while you are there, consider subscribing to the channel! Thanks).

After writing your 2022 goals and identifying your ‘why’, let’s add a layer of accountability. Nobody else will achieve YOUR goals except you, so you need to identify what or who will keep you accountable.

Accountability can come from internal or external sources; the trick here is to identify which is a more powerful driver for yourself.

Take some time now to identify what and/or who will keep you accountable to achieve your 2022 goals. Everyone is different, so what keeps one person accountable may not work for the next person. Here are some examples:

  • Money spent on a race registration, equipment, a membership, or anything else related to your goal
  • Sharing your goals with friends and family
  • Writing out the steps to achieving your goals so you know what to work on each day
  • Finding an accountability buddy that is also working towards a similar goal
  • Hiring a coach


Is one of your goals this year to tackle a new running distance, or heck, even begin running? It can be hard going alone, I’ve been there with the uncertainty and having no clue if what I was reading online was correct or absolute BS. If you’d like to spend an hour chatting with me about coaching and whether working together to help you achieve your running goal might be right for you, then click on the link below to book yourself a completely free consultation call. I promise it’s not sales-y and you are not locked into anything, it’s 100% just a conversation around your running goals and what I could do to support you.

Alternatively, I have 4 on-demand training packs available: Couch to 5K, Running 10K, Running Your First Half-Marathon, and Running Your First Marathon.
