When I am going for a run alone, one of the biggest problems I have with “getting out there” is the delay. I wake up and decide that eating a bagel is a better choice than going right outside. Then I end up doing EVERYTHING else besides running and it is 4:30 PM and I only have time for 2 miles because it is already dark and I can’t find my lights.
That was my Sunday. I was at my in-laws’ house. It was a beautiful day. Perfect running temperature, around 40 degrees. I wanted to run all damn day but I didn’t. At 4:30 I decided to get into running clothes and rush through a run before my MIL made dinner! I ran 2 fantastic and effortless miles (8:15 avg) and then worked on using the self-timer on my phone. Result:
On Sunday, I actually ran. Most days when I delay I don’t run.
Do you delay? If not, what is your best tip to get out there right away?
Do you use the self-timer on your phone to take awesome workout pictures? PLEASE TELL ME HOW BECAUSE I WANT TO BE AN AWESOME BLOGGER AND TAKE 1 MILLION PICTURES OF MYSELF (just kidding, but seriously).
