Get a Running Buddy

January 22nd, 2012

Running and generally all kinds of exercise require some kind of motivation. Once spring and good weather is here again we all feel the need to change our hibernating bodies, go out and start a training regime. Unfortunately, motivation is known to be hard to keep and every once and a while everyone feels lazy and prefers to go under a huge duvet and sleep the day away than to challenge the running track. One of the best ways to beat exercise and motivation blues is to have a running buddy!

A friend that is equally keen on sports and needs equal motivation is a great way to keep boredom away and to socialize while doing something healthier than drinking coffee and eating cupcakes. Your friend will motivate you during hard periods and you will be able to keep track of your progress and give each other useful advice. Running will be so much more fun if you can focus on another person rather than on the pain down your legs! Talking and keeping your mind on a topic while running will make every session enjoyable. It doesn’t really matter what you talk about – the stock exchange, baby diapers, changing room furniture…It’s all good.

It’s even more gratifying of you can run with your partner. That way he or she can motivate you in ways you have never expected! You can push each other to do your best knowing that the other person will fancy your fit and lean body and can give you a well deserves prize right after the end of the training session! Engage your friends and your beloved one and you will have a fantastic and never boring experience with running. Win-win situation for all parties involved really. All you lonely runners out there, follow this piece of advice, especially if you cannot afford a personal trainer to motivate and cheer for you every time.
