Everybody wants to quit running at some point. It’s inevitable. Whether it’s a conscious decision to stop pursuing your goal or a seemingly innocent canceling of an early morning training run, we all have those moments.
In this episode of Not Your Average Runner Podcast, I share the concept of big quits and little quits and explain how this can unleash the inner mean girl in us. The evolution of our brain plays a big role in us wanting to satisfy our short-term pleasures over our long-term goals, and I show you exactly why it’s designed to do so.
If you’re finding it hard to stay committed to a race you’re training for, or simply a promise to yourself to go running twice a week, you need to hear this! Make sure to take some time to write out the exercise I’ve underlined to help you in this process, too.
I am putting together an amazing rebel runner program for a few of my very dedicated listeners. If you’re ready for your first half marathon, to step out and do some epic shit, I want you to apply.
