I did it without even realising!

21 Nov I did it without even realising!

We’ve been talking in the Run365 group about habits.

Mostly nutritional habits – and Lindsey has put together a Free 7 day Challenge for anyone who like to get involved (you can join at any time).

It’s a simple start and it really makes you appreciate the complexity of habits. 

The things we do on a daily basis that dictate our day. 


For me, when I get tired, or feel knackered. I head for coffee. 

But actually that’s just what I have conditioned myself to think. 

I can reasonably easily make the switch and reach for a glass of water. 

And the same things happen across everything we do. 

Go out for a run? 

Well then you’ll probably start with 5 minutes or so of easy jogging whilst you are getting warmed up. 

When maybe you could try some mobility work at home – some legs swings, squats and lunges for a couple of minutes to get the blood flowing (things we cover in our RunCamp Level One Course starting in January). 

 

These seemingly minor changes can overtime have a dramatically positive effect. 

Especially once we start stringing a couple together (which will happen in Lindsey’s challenge). 

Then, like some of our current crop of Level One runners who have now developed a fantastic habit of warming up (properly) for a run each time – “without even realising it”.

Then… we can start looking into other positive tweaks we can make 🙂

P.S. Habits are there to be challenged, even if you think you’ll never be able to change, it just takes a touch of willpower and possibly a nudge in the right direction 😉 

So why not have a go at Lindsey’s challenge as a starting point: https://runcamp.co.uk/home/7dayhabit

Ant is the creator of RunCamp. Everyday his goals are to educate, motivate and inspire runners and triathletes to make themselves better than they were yesterday.

Running in his eyes is a journey, and through his coaching he aims to make everyone’s journeys more enjoyable.

As well as running, you’ll find Ant regularly taking part in triathlons, from sprint distance up to full Ironmans.

He also has a big weakness in the forms of Papa John’s pizza and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, so if you ever want to get an easier session, thats one way to get one!
