1. Buy new gear. Purchase a pair of shoes, running skirt or headband that makes you excited to get out the door.
2. Sign up for a race. Committing to an event gives you a good reason to create a training plan…and stick to it.
3. Find a group. Researchers at Michigan State University found working out with a buddy— even a virtual one— motivated subjects to double the length of their workouts.
4. Add a mile. Enhance endurance by stepping up your weekly mileage. To avoid injury, increase your total mileage by only 10 percent per week.
5. Run slower on easy days. Slow down during recovery runs—your rested muscles will help you pick up the pace on hard-effort days.
