Why do most new runners quit?

If you've quit running, take action now and go for a walk...

Always picture what you want yourself to look like in 6 months...  
So when you feel like quitting and running gets hard, you'll have that one picture in your mind. 
You won't want to quit!
Why do most new runners quit?
Most new runners quit because it starts to become hard. Because it they've stopped following their scheduled runs, because the haven't seen any improvements yet.

The new runner starts to get good by cutting through uncomfortable moments of running and once they've passed this point, magical moments start to happen! Running becomes something they never knew it would be...You start to see their own success! You'll begin seeing...

  • the weight come off
  • yourself run longer and feeling better
  • increased muscle tone and feeling better with more energy
If you stuck with running a little longer you would be able to experience that just around the corner is this magical feeling.

So if you are one of the ones that are having a hard time getting into running, take a deep...deep...deep breath and let it out slowly...........................................Put that picture in your head of what you will look like.

Remember why you are doing this ...

When running feels good, it's wonderful - you've passed that threshold!
6 weeks...
 That's all it is to get you started again...
know running is a great habit is something to hang on to!

After six weeks you'll  be running for 20 to 30 minutes. 
There will be some hard days when you want to challenge yourself more, but nothing compared to the beginning.

If you're having problems with goals...
Get yourself started...
Go for a walk for a half hour and then run, but don't run fast; just run so that you are still able to sing a song or chant a verse.
While your doing this find a line of trees, some poles, driveways etc and run until you get past at least 2 of them.
The next day, walk that same path and do it again.

Running down the roadPicture yourself this summer just running in the sun.......................... comfortably.
