motivation for me is signing up for a race and developing a training plan. that plus knowing that there is a whole group of people who will give me $h!t if I don't show up. Running in a group is really helpful to get out the door.Last year I was in Japan and ran alone for every run. For that, it was the external group motivation (both here and at Daily mile) that got me out the door.I have a Garmin and it is helpful, but like VeeEnn said, its probably not enough to get me out the door.Signing up for an event is definitely my best motivation. For me though, it's less about the social pressure aspect of it and more about setting a personal goal and striving to meet it. Even if I don't have a specific time goal, or it's an early season race when my fitness isn't great, I still don't want to "waste" the event entry by not giving it everything I've got.Also, I'm very greedy with my fitness and I always try to keep in mind something that was recently summed up very well by a coach named Joe Friel, "Fitness is a precious commodity that is more quickly lost than gained. Try not to miss scheduled workouts."
