Top Tips for Early Morning Runs
So the past week I’ve changed my running
I’ve started getting up at 5.45am and running.
I’VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!
I’m not a morning person at all.
Here’s why I changed though….
I’m a busy person and I always find reasons
NOT to run during the day, or something always comes up and stops me.
You probably do the same.
So I decided to change so it’s done before
I can even think of an excuse.
I’m actually loving it!
Here’s some other reasons why you should start early morning runs….
1. You feel great for the rest of the day
2. You’re training is done and you free up your time
3. There’s nobody around and it’s so peaceful.
4. I get to see the sun rise every morning
So here’s my top 3 tips to changing your routine and getting out early in the morning – it can be tough!
1. Find a training partner – someone to keep you accountable and get you out of bed. The snooze button is your biggest enemy.
2. Set up your running gear before bed – or wear your running gear for bed. Give yourself as little to do as soon as you wake up.
3. Start off really easy and work your way into the run. You’ll feel better as you go on.
