There have been many days where we’ve had to “take a day off” from running due to bad weather, icy roads, or being sick. But being in a state of quarantine is unlike anything else that we’ve been through. Whether you did your training in a gym or outside, all of us had a big change happen to our routine. While some of us might be able to shake it off and keep afloat, others may have a harder time staying motivated during these times.
Whether you began quarantine at the beginning of a triathlon training program or were nearing the finish line in your training, quarantine has put a halt on all races until at least 2021. In the meantime, how can we keep ourselves physically and mentally motivated until life becomes normal again?
Take a look at these helpful tips on how to stay motivated during the rest of quarantine:
If you’re feeling too tired to exercise, think not about how low and unenergized you feel now, but how energized you will be when you’re done. “A body at rest wants to stay at rest, and a body in movement wants to stay moving.” Creating small movements like getting dressed into your running gear, or laying out your running shoes can help you get over one of the nuggets hurdles- your mindset. Have you ever gotten done with a workout and thought, “wow, i really wish I didn’t do that, I feel awful!” I’m going to assume not. Try not to focus on why you don’t want to do it, and just get up and start the process of doing it- Look forward. No one ever turned away from a workout after they’ve already gotten dressed!
