Question: I’m having a hard time staying motivated with my workouts. Any tips?
Glad you asked! We all need a kick in the pants every now and then to stay on track and stick with our plan. Here are the things I do to help get me over that hump.
Pick a race , a challenge (30 runs in 30 days), or make a goal (run 20 miles per week). Having a purpose for your training will snap you out of your humdrum daily workouts and give you a reason to lace up your sneaks.
Sometimes we just get bored and need some new blood. Finding someone to work out with, even just once a week, will provide a refreshing change to the same old, same old.
I think, left to our own devices, we opt for an easier path. On one run a week – pick the hardest route. One with killer hills that you have to trudge up or if you’re on a straightaway, open up and run like you’re being chased. Make one run a week wicked hard. You’ll thank me!
Now go run!
