What can I do to mo­ti­vate my­self to run when I don’t re­ally feel like it?

Runner's World (UK) - - Tranning -

All run­ners have this feel­ing at some point. Run­ning shouldn’t feel like a chore, so look to boost your en­joy­ment. Try a new route, or go some­where with beau­ti­ful scenery to run. Re­mind your­self how good you’ll feel when you’ve fin­ished your run. Make plans to run with oth­ers – you’re more likely to go if it’s a so­cial oc­ca­sion. It also helps if you think of run­ning as a part of your rou­tine. You may find that you just get on with it with­out too much thought. Or tell your­self that you’re just go­ing to go out for 10 min­utes and see how you get on. Once you start, you of­ten for­get that you didn’t orig­i­nally feel like it.
