What do you do to get over performance hurdles? What I mean by this are those times when you stop improving consistently and just keep doing the same exercises at the same intensity, with the same sets and reps, same weight, running the same distances, and so on. It's when you start to plateau.
So where I am is that I've hit a plateau in my running but no so much in weight training. I'm running 25.5 miles a week consistently for about 4 weeks now. I started out with walking a mile three days a week about 3 months ago and have been consistently improving every week. But now I'm having a hard time adding mileage to my running. I don't know what it is. I run out on streets with hills and so on and during a time when I think that I'm going to go for 3.5 miles rather then 3 at about the 2 mile mark I change my mind and go back to running the 3 miles instead.
So what do you all suggest? What do you do to motivate yourself to move forward in your exercise program?
