Motivational Tips from Coach

Motivation Tips

-Sign up for a race as soon as you feel up to it.
-Find a committed running partner. It is much harder to skip a run when you have someone else depending on you.
-Remember that you will have plateaus in your progress and tough days along the way.
-It gets easier.
-Accept and appreciate the fact that not every single run can be a good one.
-Be prepared to remove the words “can’t” and “never” from your vocabulary.
-Do not compare yourself to others. Run within yourself and for yourself first.
-Don’t expect every run to be better than the last one; some of them will hurt.
-Don’t think too much about it or you won’t do it.
-Even a bad run is better then no run at all.
-If you normally run with music try skipping it and listening to your feet to hear your pace and your gait.
-Don’t be discouraged if you don’t experience weight loss immediately.
-Start a running blog and read other running blogs regularly.
-Running is not an excuse to triple your intake of doughnuts because runners gain weight too.
