As you set out for a ten mile run, as part of your marathon training or get ready for a high intensity workout, you have high hopes of a quick pace and feeling your best. But within a mile or 5 minutes in, you realize that today just may not be your day to smash your goals. Your legs feel tight and you lack the spring in your step. So what should you do? Do you throw in the towel and take today as a rest day or simply finish your workout the best that you can? These are questions you should ask yourself before you bail on a workout!
1. Why Are You Working out?
To achieve your workout successfully, you need to go in with a goal. Your goal cannot be I want to exercise hard but it should be I want to accomplish a one hour high intensity workout. So decide just what workout you want to do and then embark on your challenge!
