One thing I’ve learned over the years is that our idea of fun changes over time. Something you used to find fun in your 20s might not sound that appealing to you now, and the same goes when it comes to running. You might be holding onto the belief that running is boring or hard, or you might catch yourself in the middle of your run thinking, “When is this going to end?”
You’re not going to be surprised when I tell you that this isn’t going to serve you or make running any easier. If you don’t end up quitting right then and there, you’ll definitely struggle to find the motivation to get out there again for a while. So, this week, I’m sharing six tips that will help you shift your mindset around running, to reinforce the idea that running can be fun if you are committed to the journey of being a runner.
Join me on the podcast for some of my takeaways and tips around making running fun and why you’ll be doomed if you choose to hold onto the thought that running is hard or boring. Anything can be fun if you choose to decide it is, and if you’re ready to stop suffering, this episode is for you.
