According to Strava, January 19th is when most people give up their New Year’s Resolution, and quit running. You don’t have to be one of those people! Here are a couple of ideas to keep that running goal in your sights.
Sign Up for a Race
The best way to motivate yourself to keep going is signing up for a race. It’s on the calendar, and it’s not moving – so, you better get moving! And, what better goal race than a race in Europe. Check out our tour calendar and message us for details.
If you like beer, then the Great Breweries 25km & Marathon is for you. Love history? Then check out the D-Day Half Marathon & Marathon in Normandy, France. Looking for beautiful scenery? How about the Swiss City Marathon & Half Marathon?
Find a Running Partner
Have a friend to run with makes sticking to your goal much easier. So, ask a buddy to head out with you this weekend. Or, if you don’t have a regular running buddy, ask around at the gym, or head to your local running store and check out their weekly group runs. If all else fails, message us and maybe we can hook you up with a running partner.
Cut Yourself Some Slack
January can be cold, icy, snowy and just plain unpleasant for a lot of us in the U.S. And, the treadmill alternative can be boring and depressing, so just cut yourself some slack for the next couple of weeks. If you don’t run a lot this week, that’s ok! Just make sure that it’s just a temporary “pause” of your running goal, and don’t completely give up!
We know you can do it, so just keep putting one foot in front of the other and run!
