Motivating Yourself to Run

Running is something which you can be enthusiastic about for a while and then decide that it is not so much fun as you thought. It is a good idea to have some sort of goal in order to help you to keep going with it. It could be worth signing up for a race for example. There are many charity races taking part all over the country and it is a great feeling raising some money for charity as well as giving you motivation to run. Some of the races are not even runs but some of the people walk them and so you do not need to be that fit. A charity race tends to be more about the taking part than getting a good time, at least for most of the people taking part and so you do not need to be worried about your level of fitness. You can find out about them by looking on line. Another good motivation is to run with someone else because you will encourage each other to go out regularly. You may not run as hard or find it as easy to get in to a rhythm but you will at least do the run which is better than not doing it at all. Goal setting works well with everything in life including running. Write your goals down and post them where you see them every day. Also include why you want to achieve these goals. Sharing goals with a partner makes you more accountable to make them come true.  It takes 30 days to make something a habit so start with that!

  • Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Cheers!

  • I run my own siteand I came here by mistake. I read your articles and I found that they’re cool! I want to use them on my blog. I want do that without your agreement, so say yes. I’m greeting warmly.
