The dog days of summer can make it difficult to get the motivation to get out for a run. This could be the result of a training slump. Training slumps, we’ve all had them. Sometimes it’s just hard to get up and go for a run. Sometimes we have a small nagging injury that might not prevent us from physically running a race but mentally keeps us on the couch. And then sometime, we are not in the right headpsace to go out for a run-personal and work commitments keep us busy and preoccupied.
When I find myself in a training slump, I try to find people who I can do my runs with. It’s a lot easier for me to get motivated to get out and go for a run if I have someone to hold me accountable to get out there.
