Running can be fun. Some people have a difficult time to establish a solid running program but once that is done, running can be easy and fun. The basic “tips for running” are really important and can be considered rules for good activity: drink plenty of water, wear proper clothing, stretching, and proper nutrition. However, some people still struggle to maintain a regular running schedule for many reasons. Motivation, lack of time, muscle soreness are just a few reasons people stop running on a regular basis. In order to try to help, we present you a few “alternative tips” for great running.
1. Running Schedule
Organizing a proper running schedule is essential for a successful program. Try to plan your running based on your capabilities. For example, if you are starting and are capable of running 3 miles, try to do this distance three times a week, alternating with some rest days: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, or Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. You can also establish a weekly distance, for example 10 miles: 2 runs of 3 and one run of 4 miles. Feel free to use the distance you feel fits your physical capabilities and time.
2. Music for Your Ears
Listening to music can be very helpful for runners. Set up your favorite playlist to keep you motivated during your runs. Another good tip: use your favorite song for the end of the playlist. For example, if you are running 30 minutes, set up your favorite energy boosting songs for the last 5 minutes of your run. It can be an easy way to give you the always-needed final boost and help your finish your run.
3. Track Your Results
Tracking your results can be a great way to keep you running. You don’t necessarily need to run faster every time your run as just seeing how much you have accomplished can be a great reason to get out there and keep on going. If possible, use one of those running aps that provides you all the info your need: distance, average, total time, etc.
