Maybe do a trail run? Or an ultra? Or maybe dropping to a half? For me working with a coach has really lit a fire in me and I started doing 4 runs instead of 3 and surprisingly enjoyed that more. If you could find ways to incorporate work or family into some of your exercise routines that might be helpful. Biking with the family, run commuting are a couple ideas. Good luck!

This can include everything from finding a running partner, signing up for a race with a friend, joining a running group, and hiring a coach. One of the reasons we created the Academy was to be another source of encouragement, motivation, and practical help to runners of all abilities.
If a coach is too much of a commitment, finding running buddies can give you a similar effect especially when it comes to accountability. Deliberately think of ways that you can add enjoyment to your running.
This may include doing a costume run, a beer mile, an obstacle course race, participating in Parkrun a free weekly timed 5k run now in 21 countries and growing , trail running, volunteering at a race, or signing up for a bucket list race. Another positive idea would be challenging yourself to pick up a bag of trash during every run. After my first marathon I struggled with ITBS and started doing yoga regularly—something that is very important to me to this day.
When I was going through a hormonal imbalance a couple years ago I worked with a strength coach at our local YMCA to take the focus off my lack of progress in running and to get stronger. Doing that has helped me to stay consistent and enjoy strength training to this day. In this episode you will hear one of our coaching clients named Brooke Taylor tell us about the Jerusalem Marathon.
Brooke ran the half with her son at the end of a two week tour of the Holy Land.
