The Keep Running image is filled with the excuses we use to give up when we run, but what is it that keeps you running?

Positive mental attitude may be a cliche nowadays, but your attitude can really affect your performance, especially when you're running, here are 3 tips to keep yourself on the move and loving your run!

  1. Positive phrasing - so simple, but if you feel yourself tiring, tell yourself to Keep Running - there is a world of difference between thinking "Keep Running" to thinking "Don't Stop". Although on the surface the 2 are interchangeable, the positive reinforcement of "Keep Running" will be more rewarding than the negative "Don't Stop".

  2. Realistic goal setting - before setting out on any training program or run, test your base level of ability, this way you can set yourself achievable and progressive goals rather than plucking a number out the air to strive for. Use standard distances to benchmark your progress (5/10/15km for example) and record your times if you're striving to improve them.

  3. Reward hard work - treat yourself when you achieve new PBs or have stuck to your training plan, but try not to make it food based. Why? Because food and exercise are psychologically linked - I've burned X so I can eay Y. But what happens when you've eaten Y and didn't burn X?!!? The best way to keep a healthy balance between what you eat and how you train is to view food as you always have, rather than as a reward.
