Get-go­ing tips for those times when your mo­ti­va­tion takes a dive CHANGE YOUR WAY Even do­ing a fa­mil­iar route in re­verse can make a run more in­ter­est­ing. Or try a new park if you al­ready know your usual route back­wards. CHANGE YOUR PACE Add short bursts of speed to a run. Pick a land­mark and run at a com­fort­ably hard pace to reach it. Jog to catch your breath, then re­peat. CHANGE YOUR MIND Make a deal with your­self to run for just five min­utes. Once you’re out the door, you’ll prob­a­bly want to con­tinue. If not, maybe you do need a rest day. SCHED­ULE IT In­stead of ‘long-run Sun­day’, plan specif­i­cally: ‘break­fast, run, Sun­day lunch, nap, …’ Work out how to fit your miles into your day and check them off like a to- do list. TREAT YOUR­SELF A ba­con sarnie sounds good, right? Or a box set? With some­thing en­joy­able, yummy or re­lax­ing wait­ing for you, you’ll get out the door faster.
