306: Motivation

I just need to find the motivation...

If only I could be more motivated...

I want to go run (or strength train), but I'm not feeling motivated...


Ever been there?

So many runners have.  

I would venture to say that every runner has felt unmotivated at one time or another.

Here's the thing...

Motivation is a feeling, and like any feeling, it comes and goes.

Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're sad.

Sometimes you're angry, sometimes you're apathetic.

Sometimes you're motivated, sometimes you aren't.


Nothing is wrong here.  We all have those times.

The problem occurs when we let those times become an excuse for not doing the things we need to do to get the results that we want.  

There's a few different ways that we can look at motivation, and that's exactly what we do on this week's podcast!

We talk about: 

  • The difference between what you want and what you feel like (HINT: they're not the same!)
  • How we can use both short term and long term motivators to move us ahead
  • How to balance our goals with our current ability
  • How to do what you need to do to get the results you truly want 
  • How to use our future self to help our present self
  • And so much more!
