Get company, some people need that kind of push.

I had a guy running with me for a while, but he backed out of running with me a week or so ago with injury, but anyway he could not keep up with me, and was just slowing me down making me run at an unnatural pace...

Done three GNR's. Motivation for each was music and wanting to do well for my family (mostly my mam).

Music has got to be the main motivator. Also try watching Run Fat Boy Run, that helped slightly.

amazing vid repped:-D

I used to go running with the dog, the dog never liked this to start with as she could not sniff trees and play with her friends. After a while she got used to this exercise and would pester me to get out even in the most extreme weather!

HORIZONTAL RAIN OR THICK SNOW AND THE DOGS FOLLOWING ME AROUND THE HOUSE WITH THE LEAD!

:w00t:

Buy a decent treadmill, put it in your garage (if you have one), put a small tv in it to pass the time while running (if you have one lol) and all sorted.

Well, thats what i do and am doing.

Running the streets is boring so i find having the tv on while running takes my mind off the time etc .....

Listen to the Ricky Gervais podcast while running

Got android phone? Check out Zombie, Run! (its a paid app) it uses the GPS on your phone, and puts random zombies on the map. you go off on your run and randomly check the GPS to make sure you avoid the zombie hordes! If you get too close, they catch your 'scent' and start chasing you - incentive for a sprint!

personally i think it is ingenious! i just need an android phone and the ability to run more than 100m! :P
