Can’t seem to get out there for a run today? Start with a smaller goal to get those shoes on your feet, and yourself out that door. When you start small, you’ll find that you go even further because you didn’t expect much from yourself in the first place! Allow yourself to plan how far you”ll go as you’re running, no pressure to go more if you don’t want to.
Even if you don’t end up going further than your original plan, hey — you got out there, and that’s further than your lazy boy recliner was going to take you!
I read a great tip last night from @Toneitup: Run 10 minutes away from your house and then run right back.
A last bit of motivation:
“A lot of people don’t realize that about 98 percent of the running I put in is anything but glamorous: 2 percent joyful participation, 98 percent dedication! It’s a tough formula. Getting out in the forest in the biting cold and the flattening heat, and putting in kilometer after kilometer.” Rob de Castella
