164: How To Find Consistency Without Motivation

mindset Oct 22, 2020


Most runners understand the idea of consistency and how small consistent steps can pay off with a huge reward.  Major milestones are not reached overnight, and meteoric rises are usually followed by similar falls.  Runners, especially long distance runners, understand the idea of grinding out for rewards.  We search for the appropriate inspiration and motivation to keep training.  Motivation wanes, but a deeper understanding is unflappable.

Motivation will get you to start a run and may help finish a run
