I have been lazy for a while and was wondering how to add running to my daily routine.
I came across a very nice article about habit forming which says, "If you make an action 21 days consistently without a break, it automatically becomes part of your daily habit." I applied that habit-forming principle to learning German on the DuoLingo App, and I have 67 days streaks without any break.
So now I am trying to apply the same principle to my daily running habit. If I am able to run even for ~10-15 minutes every day, I believe I would be able to get into the habit of running regularly.
