Motivation

A calendar with a caption that says, "Life is short. Do stuff that matters."

One of the hardest aspects of my health and fitness journey has been to maintain my motivation when life has got in the way. For this reason, I search out positive stories that show me how ordinary people have achieved great feats. These inspirational narratives help motivate me to continue.

Every Monday morning at 7:30am, I post a Monday Morning Motivation post where I share some of the stories that I have read or seen online. They include content sourced from around the world.

These are some of my favourite posts to write. I keep a blogging notebook and jot down details of anything that I see that has inspired me. Many of my posts include videos.

Originally these posts were just about swimmers, runners, cyclists and triathletes. However, I’ve been inspired by a wide range of athletes, so I now include any motivational story that I chance upon.

If you’ve got an inspirational story to share that you think will motivate others or if you see something that has inspired you to keep fit and healthy, please send me a link!

If you’re in need of some motivation, pour yourself a drink and sit down to read some inspirational stories. Then lace up your shoes and start training!
