Positive Mindset: On the Run

Fitness, Wieghtloss, Food, Irish Blogger, Photography, Positivity, Inspiration, Motivation Hello Beautiful People ❀

I have long been one of those people who admired early morning runners, albeit from a distance while burying my head into my coffee and muttering about how tired I am. This week however I decided to take the plunge and start doing it myself. Now not in the mornings before work, one step at a time people, I need to ease myself into it!

I’e decided to start going running three times a week, not solely for fitness and weight loss purposes, but also to clear my head. Physical exercise can have a huge impact on your mindset and has long been recommended to help reduce anxiety. I have to say, it actually does work. I’ve felt much better this week thankfully.

I have set myself little targets to achieve to help my running improve. To say I’m not very good at it is a bit of an understatement. I’m actually laughing at how bad I truly am, but at least I can’t get any worse! There is only room for improvement!

Map My Walk and Couch to 5K are both pretty good, however I find setting out your own personal goals is what drives progress. At the moment I am only doing 30 minutes each for the three sessions and I will slowly progress this once my running improves.

A quick snap before my run the other day – excuse the poor lighting!

Fitness, Wieghtloss, Food, Irish Blogger, Photography, Positivity, Inspiration, MotivationI have seen quite a few people out running of late, not just the super fit skinny minnies who look they could run a marathon, but also people (like myself) who look like they are struggling and not enjoying it. Nonetheless they are still out and pushing themselves. I have such admiration for people who do this! Persistence and dedication aren’t easy when something is tiresome and difficult, but those who are trying are the ones who will succeed!

Β Is anyone else a runner? Let me know how you’re getting on πŸ™‚
