Set Goals

Setting goals is important for staying focused and motivated. Make your goals realistic to avoid becoming demoralised. Training for a race, such as a 5K, or a charity run is a good way to keep going. For more information on running events and training for a run, search for Runners World, RunBritain or parkrun.

Mix It Up

Keep your running interesting by adding variety. Running the same route over and over again can become boring. Vary your distances, difficulty and routes. Use Map My Run or Real Buzz’s route planner to find, record and share your favourite running routes.

Keep a Diary

Keep a diary of your runs (or use and app). Note down each run, including your route, distance, time, weather conditions and how you felt. That way, whenever your motivation is flagging, you can look back and be encouraged by how much you’ve improved.
