Hello everyone whoever is reading this!! 😀

hehe!! Thanks for stopping in!!

Currently my problem is running. For example: getting through simple runs to getting motivated to go out for a run and believing that I can’t run….

I used to want to run but for the past 2 months I have had no motivation. I think it is for the fact that I have no self-confidence and I don’t believe in myself enough that I can run!! I will go out for a run, be about 1.5 miles in and stop. I have no idea why I stop, I just do. I will tell myself that I will get through at least x distance and then I will stop around the 1-2 mile mark. I just stop, sometimes without even noticing. It’s becoming a habit, kind of! I just get BORED! I have tried different routes and routines to change it up but it seems to not be working! I am getting quite discouraged. I sometimes want to give up running because I feel like I can’t do it. But then I think of how far I have come with my running! I used to only be able to run for one minute and last summer is when I started to take running seriously! Now I can’t won’t even hop on the treadmill or go out for a run any day of the week, well maybe once! I am always exhausted from a long day at school and the last thing i want to do is come home and go running! I need metal strength! I need confidence! I just don’t know where to get it!

I want to be able to look forward to my run but instead I look at it as a chore! I just can’t get into it but I want to soooo bad because there is something inside of me that loves to run…I just need to find it!!

I want to love running….but I just don’t know how…..

suggestions?

Question of the day:

Do you enjoy running? If so, why and how do you enjoy it?

Thanks for listening,

Julie
