One of the best tips I was told early on was to track my runs, even though I had just started with the couchto5k app.
It was brilliant, the sense of achievement when looking back at what I had just achieved was inspiring and a bit of self-congratulations always helps.
During those low moments of motivation or when I had forgotten my WhyRun? Being able to look at what I had achieved gave a real sense of accomplishment.
It was great to see that I was going further each time I went out and I as I started to master 5k that those times were slowly coming down.
My personal favourite is Strava, I love that it pings instantly on your phone, I love that it tells you how your runs are progressing and the segments feature really helps to keep you going when maybe the whole run wasn’t a massive improvement.
So, remember your WhyRun? Get out and track what you doing, you’ll feel great.
