The number 1 excuse for not running: I don’t have time to run.
So, we need to find the time to run, by making time to run. If running is important to you, you will make the time to do it.
We all have 24 hours every day and we fill those hours with the things we need and want to do.
This truth has been proven over and over again by successful runners.
The good news: everyone has time to run.
Here are 5 tips to find more time to run:
- Turn off the TV, internet, technology–It is as simple as watching less TV, turning off the internet, and getting away from the social media. You will feel much better after a 30-minute run, than a 30-minute sitcom or Facebook session, guaranteed.
- Get up Earlier–IF, you get up just 30 minutes earlier you will have found the time to run. Start a morning run routine.
- Run Commute–Start running to work once or twice a week. Or, run to do errands.
- Start a Running Streak—Commit to running at least 1 or 2 miles a day for a month, 6 months or a year.
- Schedule your Running First–Jumpstart your week by scheduling in all your runs on Sunday. Don’t let the little things crowd out your runs.
