We all need a little motivation to run sometimes.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a new runner or a seasoned pro, some days you just don’t feel it.
The frustrating thing is that you KNOW that you will feel so great when you finish!
Try saving one of these images to your phone’s lock screen or use it as wallpaper on your computer – it may motivate you to get out there an run.
I like to collect images of beautiful landscapes and imagine myself running in them and every once in a while I go and run somewhere different and beautiful.
These images are a collection for you to keep for those days when you need a jolt of inspiration.
Motivation For Running
Nature never fails to motivate me. Try finding somewhere new and beautiful to go running.
Because some runners are motivated by the thought of something sweet and decadent!
This is especially true for beginners. Taking that first step of that first run is the biggest challenge.
I know a few people that get motivated by the thought of wearing swimwear in the summer!
Run for you. Just you. Go as fast or as slow as you want and don’t let ANYONE ruin it for you.
Do you keep giving up and having to start over again? If so, this one’s for you.
Go out for a run….you may just surprise yourself.
Setting a goal and achieving it is so motivating. Next year a marathon perhaps?
And if you have a bad run someday, just remember:
Do you have an image that you find helps with motivation? I would love you to share it and I can add it on here (with your name on it).
I love running and am already thinking about lacing my running shoes up tomorrow morning for a nice long run into work – I find it so good to do my run first thing, it sets me up for the rest of the day.
Wherever you are in the world….Happy Running!
