So far this year I’ve been struggling to find my motivation to hit the gym. Oh, I’ve made it there several times, but it has felt like a chore. Chores aren’t fun. You find reasons not to do them.
Then last week I went for a run and remembered the most important aspect of any workout regime…you have to like it.
Beating the streets has been my go-to exercise since high school. I love how it clears my mind. I love how easy it is to do anywhere. And I appreciate the immediate feedback of going farther than last time.
I know jogging isn’t the most effective way to work the body. Too steady state. But it burns more calories than deciding on today’s excuse for skipping the gym.
I really don’t mind hitting the gym. In fact most of the time I like it. Just, for some reason, not lately. Which is why rediscovering my favorite form of exercise is so important. For once again I’m looking forward to exercise.
