Do you ever struggle to get out the door like I do sometimes? I’m pretty sure everyone at some point finds it tempting to just say “I’ll work out tomorrow”…but if we keep saying it, it could become a pattern and then a routine. Before you know it, you haven’t run in 2 weeks.
Here are some tips I’ve found that work for me when I’m lacking the desire to get out and run:
- Run with friends. Nothing says accountability like friends. Make a date and do whatever you can to join them.
- Sign up for a race. Circle the race date on your calendar. Make it a goal to work out 20 minutes a day. Once you’re in a groove, it’ll get easier to get out the door.
- Hire a coach. Motivation. Accountability. Expertise. Make running an important part of your life and get the knowledge you deserve from someone who knows what they are talking about.
- Plan a time to run in your daily calendar. Make it a priority and schedule it into your day.
Now that you’ve had some tips to get out the door for a run, what do you think you’d add to the list?
