Think about the last time you had a run scheduled in your training plan. Did you stick to it? Or did you come up with a whole list of excuses to leave it for later and end up never getting it done?
We’ve all been there, where you’ve justified skipping your run, or not cleaning the house right now, or not driving by the gym today. It seems innocent enough at the time, but the problem is that when tomorrow comes, the same conversation is going to be going on in your brain.
Today I’m introducing you to the minimum baseline technique to help you create a new pathway for your habits. This approach may seem too easy at first, and you will be tempted to increase the threshold, but I urge you to listen closely and follow the steps.
This isn’t about making big jumps in your fitness progress, or your running distance and time. This little brain hack is going to change your life, not just in terms of running, but in any area where you’re trying to create consistency, so tune in and give it a try.
We are working on consistency in Run Your Best Life for the month of August. September is a time where we see our training plans ramped up and more runners joining us, so we will be learning the minimum baseline along with lots of other tools to help you stay motivated. If your excitement is wearing off and you need some support, join us there!
