In high school I ran cross-country for 4 years and track for 3 (injured my senior year). I wasn't a superstar, but I was good. Probably could've hit a 4:30s mile senior season and I made the state championship meet in XC my senior year. I ended up having surgery though, in April '08, and was hesitant to go back. Then I finally started training for college XC. I got to school, and I hated the coach and quit the team.
It's been about 7 months since, and I'm feeling the itch again and I also wanna start working out, mainly sparked by running a community 5K that I run every year. I was also less stressed when I ran, I've noticed. My problem is, I can't seem to motivate myself to run and go to the gym. I'll be sitting here and it'll roll around the time that I want to go out and run, and I'll push it back. I keep doing that until it gets to be too late to go out then I lose a day.
My question is, TL, how do you motivate yourself?
