- Meet friends for more than food and drinks. Yes, it is nice to just post-up at a restaurant and catch-up but now I find myself meeting friends for a walk, run or gym class. This way I am getting in my social hour and my workout! Especially, during my training meeting a girlfriend for my long runs on Sunday's (6+ miles) makes my workout go by a lot faster ; )
- Switch it up. It can be quite monotonous to stick with the same routine week to week; I try and add a new class at least every 2 weeks and change my run location every Sunday.

(Not pictured- after workouts I may have a small cup of chocolate milk or coconut water)
- New outfit- new outlook? Sometimes it takes a new piece of workout gear to get you going! I just got a new app on my iPod..."iMapmyrun". It's a great motivator for outside running; with it's GPS capabilities and ability to record my pace, distance and calorie burn, I am excited to hit the pavement!
How you do you avoid a workout slump?
