What's a good way to get motivated to run every day?

I had a good streak going for maybe 15 or so weeks and then i stopped because i got sick. Since then I just haven't been able to get motivated to get out and go running. Any way that could help me get motivated?

I once asked a world champion cyclist what part of training he found the hardest. He said, "Getting out of bed." But he said that once he was up, had splashed cold water on his face, and was on his bike, it was all easy.

The solution to your lack of motivation is to set a time every day -- first thing in the morning works best for many people -- then just do it. When it becomes a habit you won't even think about whether to run or not. It'll become automatic.

Good luck.

Find a running partner. You'll be more likely to go if you have someone else relying on you.

that's what I used to do too but stopped -____- but I'm going at it again next week, when I run, I listen to music and don't really focus on how tired I am. I used to run 3 miles non stop.

Running every day may be too much for you. Run every other day - then maybe increase later on...
