There’s this misconception out there that runners just run all the time and they never experience any drama about it. But my friends, the opposite is true. Consistent running does not mean perfection or that you never take time off. So then, what does consistent exercise really look like?
This week, I’m sharing a story of an injury I’m currently going through. Even though this is a topic I coach on heavily, I found myself wallowing in self-pity and freaking out about how I’ll never run again. But I had an epiphany about the mental tantrums that I was letting fester and the power of recognizing what consistency actually means, and I’m sharing it with you on this episode.
Join me on the podcast as I show you what consistent exercise really looks like, and invite you to question how different your running experience could be if you allowed space for adaptation and the ebb and flow of all the inevitable challenges we’ll have to navigate in life.
If you loved today’s episode and want to take these concepts a step further, you’re going to love the class I’m teaching on May 22nd. It’s a three-hour live workshop called How to Become a Consistent Exerciser and we’re diving deep into motivation, excuses, and even creating a personalized exercise plan just for you. And the best news? It’s only $39 to join and we will provide a recording that same day if you can’t make it live. Click here to sign up!
