6 Tips to Stay Motivated Running in the Winter
6 TIPS TO STAY MOTIVATED RUNNING IN THE WINTER
Regularly changing up your running route is a great way to keep your routine fresh. Why not ditch the pavement for some trail running? Even if you live in a city, there are parks and commons begging to be explored. Don’t forget to take a head torch a lights for the shorter daylight hours and trainers appropriate for more rugged terrain.
Make New Running Goals
Focus on 30-minute runs a few times a week. If you start your running regime in winter, you can slowly build stamina without increasing the risk of overtraining and cold-related running injuries. When you feel ready you can test your racing legs in a local 10K.
Finally, making sure the temperature outside your duvet is toasty and warm will make getting up and dressed for a run in the morning much easier. If you're an evening runner, make sure you're as warm as possible before getting changed.
