This is the type of situation that prevents so many of us from reaching our running and fitness goals. At Windsor Running, one of our secrets to getting consistent workouts in is making sure that we always have a running partner. And on days where we can’t find a friend to get up early with us, we make sure to hold ourselves accountable in our online running communities! We’ve outlined four key benefits to running with a partner below:
Accountability – In our scenario above, the only thing that got us out of bed was knowing that our friends were waiting for us at the track, and not wanting to let them down! I live across the street from a track and had some 400-meter repeats on tap last week. Even though all it was going to take was literally crossing one street, my bed was so comfortable! But I knew that my buddies were already warming up and we needed to get the work done. So out I went, crushed the workout and came back ready to take on the day.
