Running On Creativity One of the greatest obstacles for runners, either professional runners or those just starting out, is finding a way to keep the cardiovascular trial from becoming repetitive. Perhaps the greatest tool a runner has to combat the boring tendencies of running is his imagination. So how does it work? There are nearly a hundred different styles of running. Cross-country, sprints, mid distances, relays, and marathons are just a few of the events that involve running. For those just starting to make running a part of their routine, perhaps a way to keep them interested is to think of their favourite superhero or video game character. Wait, you're talking about pretending? Like kids do? Actually yes. Running is not only an incredible athletic feat and insanely good for your health, but it's also an activity that releases endorphins. Those hormones make you feel good. Ever heard of a 'Runner's High'? It is not a myth! People who incorporate running into their lifestyle are shown to be happier, more confident people. So how do they keep doing it? Obviously, they have found something that works to keep them motivated. It may be the fat burning benefit of the intense cardio. It may be feeling the wind in their hair. It may even be that they love to be close to nature. Some runners find personal online running coaches highly beneficial to their running game. Here are some ways to keep running interesting. Imagination included! Dream up a superhero adventure The Flash.Superman.Batman.Captain America.Catwoman. All of these comic book heroes are known for their amazing feats of superhuman abilities. They could be battling an epic villain, pursuing their enemy. They could be running to a burning building, eager to save the lives trapped within the falling structure. Or perhaps, they're running to save the love of their life from the evil clutches of their arch rival! No matter which way it's sliced, pretending to be a superhero on duty is a way to ramp up the running experience. Come up with a superhero name! Get a theme song; make a sound track for the course that is run!

Maybe even a name for your rival that you are destined to defeat! How does one defeat their arch nemesis, though? Naturally, by setting a definite goal (distance) and obtaining that goal at all costs. Travel in actual distance Ever dreamt about seeing a new place? A museum, big city, or amusement park? If space is limited for running, here is an idea. Find out how far it is from your home to your point of interest (the museum, city, amusement park). Determine the mileage. Grab your pedometer. Keeping in mind that the attraction you are drawn to is more than ten kilometres from home base, you'll be spending as much time as you can at your running track or on your treadmill. If your travel hope is ten kilometres away, run ten kilometres. Once your pedometer says you have achieved that distance, go see your reward in the real world! Battle a dragon Ever want to slay a mythical creature? If the answer is yes, while you are running, imagine you are a knight with a mighty sword, donning shiny armour from medieval England. Your journey starts at your home. Why are you running? The reason must be that a dragon is threatening your village. Who better to tame the beast than you? Make beautiful music A runner's best friend is often his mp3 player. Music can motivate. There have been numerous studies of which types of music and which songs assist the most in motivating athletes. There are many workout playlists on the internet. Use your own! See which ones get you fired up the most. Once you figure it out, get your playlist going. You can even make your playlist coincide with moments in your run you need your biggest pick-me-up. Play around with it and see what works for you! It is true that no one that can listen to your body and your likes the way that you can! But at the same time, professional coaches understand the nuances of the game and can guide you in the right direction. So it is a wise thing to get advice from, and be trained under the supervision of a personal trainer, or a personal remote running coach. For more information, visit
