To join the ranks of powerful runners, you need to achieve staggering consistency with your running practice. One of the best ways to achieve consistency with your running—or with any other activity—is via the forming life-long habits. See, human beings are creatures of habits. We’re not that creative. In fact, we’re bound to repeat almost the same mental and physical patterns from one day to the next. Everybody dreads change.
Fortunately, habit forming is almost an exact science. By following the right habit forming strategies, you too, can turn your running practice into a daily habit, thus see your athletic performance soaring and reaping the biggest health rewards.
Without further ado, here are 3 habit forming conditions:
Make a Clear Plan
The first step is to achieve clarity with your running resolution. Being in the dark does not help. It only adds to the confusion and bewilderment. Instead, make sure to sketch out the perfect training program according to your own schedule, fitness level and training needs. Don’t try to run in someone else’s shoe, instead, find what works best for you. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
Commit to 4 Weeks
All you need to build a habit is 4 weeks. This is the conclusion of most studies conducted on the subject. For instance, in his book, Tony Schwartz emphasizes the importance of non-interrupted practice for at least 21-day for building a habit. He calls it the ritual principle. Therefore, make sure to stick with your running routine during the early weeks of training.
Don’t get me wrong, it’ll get harder—especially during the 2nd week but it’s worth the sweat. Usually after the 4th week, the practice will get ingrained and won’t need much thought to do it.
Use Accountably Programs
Relying solely on yourself as the main source for motivation can prove difficult. Therefore, you need to call for the assistance of a family member or a friend to hold you accountable for taking the right actions. Success is not a solo journey; you need other people to provide you with support and comfort—especially during harsh times when you fee just like quitting.
An accountably partner can help you ensure that you’re doing what needs to be done in order to achieve your desired outcomes. This partner can also inflict the right punishment if you started to veer off the right course. Nevertheless, seeking perfection is the recipe for disaster. Instead, make sure to find balance between your life and training practice.
