I know that people will just don't be soft and if I feel this way than I'm not cut out to be a runner. However, i'm an 18 year old runner that just finished my freshman year of college, I've been training this year and will continue during the summer until mid August when I will try to walk on to my college xc team.
I am just wondering if anyone has advice for keeping motivated for running. More specifically, I almost always have to run by myself and while I do try to be better, there are just certain days when the minute I get out of the door, I feel tired and want to stop after maybe half a mile into a 10 mile run. I am just wondering how people cope with this/what they think about/or even what they physically do to just feel better during these runs.
Sorry, I realize this is pretty vague, but any help would be appreciated. Although I want to be good, sometimes I just think what's the point? I am training so hard just to be a walk on runner and I'm not sure if it is worth it.
