What keeps you motivated?

What motivates you to do the work in your training plan? To run those hill repeats, the 18 mile long run at 7am, the mile repeats?

Goals, long-term and short-term, are great ways to stay motivated. Create a goal, or two, and share it with your friends, family and coworkers. Make yourself accountable. Write it on a piece of paper and stick it on your bathroom mirror or your bedroom door. Repeat it to yourself. Believe in it and in yourself.

Goals don't have specific shapes or forms or wording. They are yours and there to push you, motivate you, scare you and get you to think bigger and grander than you believe possible.

Once you establish your goal(s), now seek out people to help you. You'll need support, we all do! Find your cheerleaders, your teachers and your "did you do the work today?" people.

If your goal is fitness related, talk to us. We'd love to help you define it, tackle it and create more! Having goals will motivate you to finish that 10th hill repeat or wake up at 7am on a Sunday to run 18 miles.
