Running, life and motivation

With spring marathon season here, I thought this post from December was worth a re-blog!


Life and running are uncannily similar . I suppose you could say the same for any sport . How you approach it says a lot about your character and how you live your life. One of our greatest obstacles to persevering with running is motivation issues. If we can conquer these we’ll learn a lot about ourselves and greatly improve. Also, if you know how to achieve this let me know!!

Few of us are motivated 100% of the time. Even athletes struggle and need really good coaches to push them through low stages. I reckon if we’re motivated 60% of the time we are lucky. Running is like life in that sense.

My tips for running motivation are:
1. Set yourself achievable goals
2. When things get too boring or predictable change things a bit.
3. Review what you’ve achieved.
4. Accept and surrender to the “bad” patches
