Top 5 tips

Trail Running (UK) - - Push Your Boundaries -

1 HAVE A GOAL Write it down and stick it up some­where you’ll see it each day to re­mind your­self to stay mo­ti­vated.

2 BE YOUR OWN CHEER­LEADER

When you hear an­other part of your brain say­ing you can’t do it, write that down too, then si­lence it by scrunch­ing up the pa­per and hurl­ing it in the bin. If you wouldn’t say that to a friend, don’t say it to your­self ei­ther.

3

RUN WITH NEW PEO­PLE Mix with friendly run­ners who are bet­ter than you to learn from them. It can seem in­tim­i­dat­ing, but most are happy to help.

4 JOIN A SUP­PORT­IVE GROUP

Join our #Run1000Miles chal­lenge and be part of the friendly, en­cour­ag­ing group on Face­book to keep you go­ing.
