The fight against the inner bastard

"It could rain in a minute", "oh, it's cold outside", "actually I don't have time", "better tomorrow". We always find an excuse. But how do you manage to motivate yourself to run regularly?

Nothing motivates you as much as your own success! Many Sports watches or apps praise you for mastering the training and thus provide a little extra motivation. Furthermore you can also get a Search for a running partnerin order to celebrate joint successes and drive each other forward. Also a Running Group can of course be very helpful. Every week, same day, same time. This is... Routine. So it hardly takes any effort to get up for training and overcome the bastard.

Find a goal where the effort can be integrated into your everyday life in terms of time. Set yourself realistic goals. A beginner will not run a marathon in three months. Running one hour at a time is a good and feasible start for beginners. On the way there, you can of course set yourself intermediate goals. 15, 30, 45 minutes are useful intermediate steps on the way to a full running hour.

Tips for your start in running

Especially in the beginning it is important to take it slowly. Too high expectations or excessive motivation can quickly ruin the good approach. It is important not to overdo or overestimate yourself. After all, jogging is meant to recover from stress and not to become stress itself. Helpful for getting started or even getting back into the job is a sensible and balanced training plan.
