A fellow run coach always says, “Never outrun the joy of running.”
When I start to feel burnt out and running begins to feel like a chore or just another item on my to-do list, I back off.
I switch up my routine, do more yoga and pilates, go hiking, or spend more time cooking.
I wait for the desire to run to return before I jump back into it.
Sure enough, it always comes back and running is always there waiting for me when I’m ready to lace up my shoes again.
