How many times we’ve said “This will be my year! I’ll be in the best shape of my life” “Hear me out, this year I will workout!” “I’m going to pay for a full year membership, because if I pay for it, then I’ll definitely go the entire year!” I think we all know how it ends, the first couple of months you can clearly see a gym full of people, people running in the park, etc and by March all this motivation goes away.
Confession time: I really suck at running, I really do. I’m slow, my running form is terrible, and the list goes on and on. Truth is, I have never given it the time to be a better runner, I usually “survive” the run during a triathlon. And after uncountable injuries over the last 5 years I realized it was time to target the root cause.
Ever since my last race a month ago something strange happened – actually not that strange but I’ll get to it- I lost my motivation and didn’t have the rising energy anymore to train.
