Whether you need to train for a marathon, or are simply looking to get in shape due to a newly made New Year’s resolution, the Boston Build Up Winter Series is a great event to join. This is a series of four progressively longer races and the first one is in Ridgefield, CT on January 19th, 2014.
If we took a poll in February, how many people would still be sticking to their resolutions? If you resolved to get healthier, you may have trouble finding the motivation to exercise. Take note of some of these tips to help you stick to your guns and complete the resolutions that you have made. First, write them down and share them with someone whom you know will hold you accountable. Second, think realistically and make some easy-to-reach goals. Take a look at your schedule and set aside blocks of time that you can fit in exercise without distractions. Third, make changes gradually. If you bite off more than you can chew, you may get frustrated and feel tempted to quit, and you could possibly get injured. Fourth, add in some fun. Nothing may contribute more towards giving up than a routine that is the same old thing every single time. If you have set a goal to complete a 5K, get your running in, but change it up with strength training, swimming, dance classes, or whatever excites you to keep exercise fun.
The last tip we want to share is to take care of your self. Resolutions are great but not at the expense of your health.
