Finding Motivation to Run When You’re Not in Shape
It's very common for middle age runners to feel challenged with finding motivation to run because they feel that they're not in shape.
Here's a few proven strategies that I recommend to runners whom I coach to get past that point in their training schedule where self-doubt about one's condition and time remaining before a race lead to lack of motivation and low self-confidence.
Details for each of these strategies, in addition to other strategies can be found in the following post: Finding Motivation to Run
