You can probably think of a million reasons to not run, walk, or exercise but… take a second and think about how good you feel when you do take the time to move. Running, walking, and moving for just a few minutes a day can make your day that much better. Stay motivated all year long with these simple ways to keep you going and going.
Schedule A Date
Make exercising a priority and schedule a date and time to get out and go! You wouldn’t cancel a work meeting would you? So pencil in a time to run, walk, and move.
Invite A Friend
Instead of going solo, invite a friend to join you. The miles will fly by when you have a friend by your side, plus think of all the catching up you can do while you are out and about! Give them a call and schedule your next run or walk together!
Pick A Pep Squad
Select a group of people that will be your cheer squad and keep you accountable. Find someone who you know will be there to cheer you along and keep you motivated even on the days you aren’t itching to go out. There’s nothing wrong with a little tough love. You can return the favor and be there for them too!
Set a mileage goal using a GPS watch such as a Garmin or fitness tracker and treat yourself to a pair of your favorite shoes when you hit your goal. When you are ready for new kicks drop by and let our team help. Schedule an appointment for an in-person or virtual shoe fitting or stop by one of our stores at any time!
Have A Little Fun
Add a little fun to your run or walk. Grab a pair of headphones and listen to your favorite playlist or podcast. Explore a new location. Challenge yourself to a new workout. Ask a friend to suggest their favorite location or workout. Pick a place to run or walk near your favorite restaurant or coffee shop. Treat yourself post workout. Whatever you do, make it fun!
Find Your Why
What motivates you? Why do you run or walk? Find your why and write it down on days when you don’t feel like getting out. Maybe you run to relieve stress. Or maybe you walk every morning just to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Whatever your reason is, stop and remember your why.
