Find a way to enjoy parts of every run. Most of your runs should be mostly enjoyable. Jeff Galloway, an American Olympian and lifetime runner
I really don't like running. I'm not good at it. I don't run fast. But, I get it done a few times a week. Although, in order to get it done, I had to find ways to make it enjoyable. I save some of my favorite TV shows or movies that I want to watch and only watch them when I am on the treadmill. That forces me to get on the treadmill. I often times will watch the same show with my cousin while both of us are on the treadmill and we instant chat at the same time. Yes, it takes some skill to type on the iPad while running, but I'm getting pretty good at it now. It makes those 45-60 minutes fly by!
I know other people who read while on the treadmill. I can't do that one as well, it makes me a little nauseous. Other people listen to music and time the beat of the music to their runs. Others run with a friend outside.
The point is make it your own time, something you can look forward to and enjoy! How do you make your running time enjoyable?
I'm a mom of 3 who stayed home and now have entered the world of substitute teaching. I also help run an after school program at our church, give storytime at our local library, and volunteer for other charities. I look forward to our monthly book club and I love to read. I am devoted to my parents and doing whatever I can to help them and give them what they need. My husband and I just want to give our kids a balanced, healthy life and show them the importance of giving back to others and our community.
