Exercise Tips (via runnersworld.com)
- MAKE A PLAN
Write out a plan with the cues and rewards, and post it where you can see it. Try it for a week. If it doesn’t work, try changing the cues or the rewards.
- KEEP IT REGULAR
Create a prerun routine to cue your body and mind that it’s time to run, and repeat it every time you go. Always go at the same time of day. Put your workout clothes next to your bed. Put on your same workout music before you go out.
- REWARD YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY
Right after your run, treat yourself to something you genuinely enjoy.
- BUILD YOUR OWN SUPPORT SYSTEM
Equip your running routine with the activities that will make you feel good about it. Meet up with friends so that the run doubles as socializing time; track your miles so that you can see the progress you’re making and the fitness improvements.
