    Hey Everyone.

    July 17, 2018, 8:33 pm

    im not here for reasons that many probably are. im not looking to get tons of muscle or super shredded, im just looking to get healthy again. i recently lost my job and am unable to get the medical support that i need both physically and mentally. i've watched scott for a long time and i appreciate all the inspiration provided.

     

    in 2013 i was running 35 miles a week, id wake up at 5 in the morning and within 5 minutes begin a 7 mile/60 minute fasted run which is 7 back-to-back 8.5 minute miles. id love to get back to that. people were always like 'oh wow you really love running' but im like god no. i HATED getting out of bed to do that. but the feeling AFTER was awesome. id like that feeling back again, rather than feeling inhibited by myself by my depression and anxiety that has been so dominant and cost me so much.

     

    hope everyone is well. wasn't sure where else on the forum to post this.

    The only thing that makes me depress is just thinking about and only doing running in and of itself :( But to answer you question Im not sure what are you asking??? How to get back into it agian? If that is is well Im sorry you got to cross that threshold and just do it. No ifs and butts about it!! If your looking into some type of carido that is different play a sport. I usually play basketball every saturday with a group of guys for 2 hours full court. I burn 1600 cals when that happens. The only way I run is with some type of ball in my hands. But there is Hitt carido you can do or circuit training with weights if your not into or wanting to build muscle. But lifting weights is fun I think. I hope this helps or try to reply back with more details.

    I agree with @zeke_be. if you want to get back into it, it's about getting back in that mindset. Focus on the feeling you had AFTER your run. That should help you to get motivated to do it again.

     

    Also, if you're only just getting back into running in general, you don't have to start with 7 miles. Maybe start with 3 miles, or 4 miles. Work back up to that longer distance (if running is still what you want to do).

     

    If you're not already, get some headphones for music too, or even some inspirational quotes/speeches. That helps me shut off as well when I'm running, and it can help you push harder.

     

    The last thing I would say is you don't HAVE to do it in the morning either. If you literally hate that, do it later in the afternoon if you can hold yourself accountable to it. I started working out in the mornings as well, and I'll admit it's still hard to drag myself out of bed early to go and train haha. But like you say, it's the feeling once you are finished that makes it worthwhile. If you can put all your focus on that, it will help you through.
