If you are struggling to keep to your workout routine or tasks on your calendar, whether it’s running related or not, this episode is for you. Today, I’m breaking down the real reason your mojo has faded and I’m going to help you get back on track to get what you want.
I’ve personally been struggling to stick to my strength training goals, and I should say that everybody faces this issue every now and again. You’ll find all the reasons for not doing a particular thing you have scheduled on your calendar, and everything just feels hard, right?
