It’s the end of January. How are you doing with your January 1st goals? What about those resolutions? It’s not too late. Don’t throw in the towel!
If you’ve signed up for a spring race, it’s likely time to get started on some focused training.
If you’ve had trouble with motivation given the cold weather and recent snows, that’s okay. The weather is giving you a break. Take advantage of it!
I’ve got some tips to get you going!
- Make a schedule. Plan your week. When are you going to run? How far? What about cross training? What workout DVD are you going to do? Rest days? Put them on the calendar. You’re more likely to stick with it.
- If you don’t know where to start, find a plan. If it’s running, Runner’s World has some good links to training plans. If you’ve signed up for a race, the race’s website is likely to have some links to training plans. Do you have “runner friends”? Reach out to them. Do you like DVDs? I can hook you up with a good workout. Do you have a gym membership? Check out their class schedule.
- Get a friend. Invite someone to meet you at the gym. Get together at your house and put a DVD in and get moving. Meet up with a running group. I can get you connected! Take the dog for a walk. Dance with the kids.
- Decide on your goals. Finish? Set a PR? Lose weight? Get off the couch? Unwind? Fresh air? Set the goal and then do whatever it takes to reach it.
