Staying Motivated

We lose our edge to stay motivated without these three things

How’s our motivation? What would we say to that right now?

We lose our edge to stay motivated without these three things:

  1. an impossible goal
  2. (ongoing) compelling short term goals to reach the first goal
  3. the creativity to turn a negative into a positive

Back last night from a road trip. One of the most taxing weeks in a long time. Exercise was minimal.

Five days in a hotel netted only two treadmill runsĀ (not a treadmill fan):

  • 2-miles at 10-minute mile pace (pedestrian for me)
  • 4-miles, including a 6-minute mile (sweet!)

Does this example mean anything to us?
