4. Set goals
Set one bigger goal and some smaller ones. Write them down. If your goal is the run PB in the autumn, it might feel it is far ahead so write smaller goals before that. Think how you are going to reach your main goal, for example running certain amount kilometres in one month, breaking PB shorter distances, losing weight or whatever you wish for.
