FESTIVE SEASON RUNNING TIPSAs the work parties and social gatherings have eased off as we have entered 2019, you’d be forgiven for over-indulging and missing out on some running! But if you’re feeling extra determined this year, we’ve got some top tips to help you keep fit this winter!
Become an early riser
Why not set an alarm and get your run done nice and early? It’s a great feeling having it under your belt and knowing the rest of the day is yours to relax! Will it be cold? Probably – but winter mornings can also be pretty beautiful things to behold.
Don’t be self-righteous
You might be really enjoying the feeling of keeping fit while family members pour prosecco onto their cornflakes, but don’t go gloating! An endorphin-charged runner sitting on their high-horse is sure to ruffle some turkey feathers.
Get into the spirit
There are plenty of festive fun runs coming up in the next few weeks, so why not get yourself entered into one? Get some friends together and have a laugh with it!
Don’t expect any PBs
A few cheeky treats are inevitable and Christmas food is certainly more conducive to steady running than a max out effort! So don’t put too much pressure on yourself, just go out and enjoy running for the sake of running!
Most importantly… enjoy!
