What to Do When You Can’t Stay Motivated

Female athlete suffering overtraining

We’ve talked a lot about motivation over the past 163 episodes … how to find it, how to keep it, and what to do when you have it.

But what happens when no matter what you do, you just can’t stay motivated?

When even after all the tricks — like accountability and establishing a routine —  you simply don’t have the motivation to run, eat healthy, or keep up whichever habit you’re trying to maintain?

That’s what we discuss in today’s episode.

SPOILER: We might not land on the solution you’re expecting.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Why Doug “quit” racing (for now)
  • Embracing life’s seasons
  • Should you always have another goal race scheduled?
  • When it’s better to fight through a lack of motivation
