Here’s my top tips on staying motivated to keep that run going, even in the cold winter months!
Set yourself goals – write down your goals as well as tell people what your goals are so it will make you achieve them and keep you motivated
Enter a winter race – This is another way to keep you focused and motivated to train
Hire a personal trainer or find a running buddy – book a session or meet a buddy for a run. You are more likely to turn up because you will have to pay your trainer even if you do not turn up or you will be letting your buddy down.
Train in the morning – Get your session done first thing and then you do not have all day to talk yourself out of going for a run
Add variety to your run training:
- Strength exercises
- Treadmill running
- Exercise classes
- Circuit training
Ensure you dress for winter – Buying new clothes can also help motivate you. Remember to dress down 10% to what the actual weather is outside because you will warm up as you get going on your run.
