You guys always ask me how I stay motivated and keep up my training.
Well, to be honest, I’m not always motivated and I consider that as something completely normal ;) I know, it would be would so much easier if we were always motivated to do the things that will change our lives for the better. The only problem is that usually, the better the change, the more effort is required to actually get in implemented into our daily life and routine. Sometimes you don’t feel motivated at all, you start searching for excuses and end up on the sofa watching your favorite show on Netflix.
I can totally relate to you and sometimes feel the same, but I learned how to stick to my training and reach for my goals. It’s said that Runners (well, I think you can exchange this for any sport) who are consistent with good habits have the most success.
It’s good to make resolutions and have a goal to aim for. Take care and consider goals that based on process instead of the outcome. That’s a great way to stay motivated through a whole period of training.

WRITE YOUR GOALS DOWN
In my opinion that’s a great method to visualize your dreams. If you are planning to finally complete running 5 or 10km, to do a small distance competition, an half-marathon or even a marathon, it doesn’t matter whether your goals are big or small. Whether it’s a goal time, a goal distance or a goal weight. Write your goals down. Keep them somewhere where you can look at them an reflect your progress. In times of social media, you can also post your goals on any desired Social Media Chanel and keep your friend and followers updated on your progress. Some nice comments and message are going to help you on your progress, for sure ;)
I think this workout is super short and effective… check it out!
