I used to think the only reasons I would run were if a) someone was actively chasing me b) if I was being attacked by a swarm of bees or c) if I saw a sign that says “Free French Fries if you run over here right now.” It turns out that running for pleasure is kind of, well… pleasurable. It’s been a struggle for the past couple of years. After I started running in 2012, I hit about 100 little plateaus, but also celebrated a bunch of little victories.
One of the best ways I ever got through a plateau was to commit to 30 Days of Motivation. I spent one month motivating myself with sometimes silly and sometimes simple, but always inspiring actions and thoughts that kept me moving toward my goal of becoming a runner. If you’re stuck in a plateau and you’re ready to get back on track (See what I did there?… track? running? Just give me a sympathy laugh…), here are some posts to get you started on your own 30 Days of Motivation.
