Ok hello people, got 2.5 weeks until the Bristol Half Marathon, done the majority of a 12 week training plan, and my motivation has just dropped off a cliff for some reason. I would have thought it would have gone through the roof this close to the run, but i missed my scheduled 5 miles this morning due to the bed feeling too good etc etc,.. feeling a tad worried now. Did my first Half Marathon in March in 1hr 52mins, and was hoping to PB that in this half mara, but for some reason have a horrible feeling that i havent prepared enough and arnt ready for it,......... How can i get the motivation back asap? rocket up the arse?!
also you could try a number of things.
- try treating yourself to a bit of nice new kit, that works for me because I want to 'try it out' - it could be trainers, t shirt, compression socks, whatever.
-running to music
-if you have a smart phone or a garmin type device, download strava. It is revolutionary and makes me want to go out on my bike or run - records time/distance/splits/shape of the ground/comparisons with other people who have done segments of the same run
