Running – an uplifting activity

The last week has been a bit all over the place with a number of things going on in my life, and I have really found it hard to gather the momentum to train. I don’t know what kind of person you are – whether you find having things go on and on your mind pushes you more and makes you focussed, or like me it causes you to lose focus of your usual routine with eating and exercise.

I had coffee with my beautiful friend yesterday and she said to me ‘you have to go back to the gym and train – you will feel so much better, you know you will.’ I agreed with her but secretly wondered if I could be bothered – but I missed two days of training and that’s a fair bit to me.

So this morning when the alarm went off I hauled myself out of bed and made myself go to the gym and jumped on the treadmill, and you know I felt great and had one of the best sprint sessions that I have had in a while. I came away from the gym feeling pumped and ready to start the day. That’s all it took – a little push and my motivation and mindset focussed again.

How do you motivate yourself? what has and hasn’t worked? What focusses you? I’m interested to know – wondering if I am the only person who needs a kick up the butt every now and again from a friend who knows me better than I know myself sometimes!

Happy training and hope you have a great weekend!
