It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
My Topic this week is: Motivation to Run
There have been many days where I struggled to get out the door … so here are my recommendations.
Hopefully they will help you when you need that extra “motivation.”
1. Call a Friend
It’s harder to skip a run when someone is waiting for you.
2. Put it on your Calendar
It’s just as important as a work meeting or a dentist appointment. So schedule it.
3. Prep the Night Before
If I ran in the morning, my running stuff would be on the floor next to my bed. Since I run after work, I pack my running clothes the night before. It’s so easy to skip the run when you are tired in the morning or wake up late.
4. Plan your post run Reward.
It may be coffee or ice cream or brunch if you need food gratification. Or maybe a shopping trip.
5. Register for a Race.
If you have a race on your schedule, you are more likely to get that run in.
Happy Running! Do you struggle with running motivation from time to time? Any other tips that you can share?
