It’s Tuesday so I’m linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Today’s Topic is: Favorite Ways to Keep Running Exciting
Not that running is boring but we all need ways to just spice things up. Here are my tips:
- Run on a New Route
We tend to run on those comfortable tried and true routes. You know the ones near our home or work. Though, it was a longer drive and the surface unknown, I enjoyed this run a lot.
- Run a New Race
I have my favorite races. I know all the logistics and the course. Much more comforting but not as exciting as a new race.
- Run with Friends
If you are a solo runner, you will definitely find running the miles with others to go so much more smoothly.
- Reward Yourself with a New Post Run Food Treat
My running friends and I usually go to Baking You Crazy after our runs but it was fun to try a new locale.
- Buy Something New to Wear
You know me, I don’t have a problem buying new running outfits or shoes. When I do, I usually can’t wait to try them out.
- Listen to Something New While Running
If you listen to music, create a new playlist. If you like podcasts, download a new one. One reason, I started listening to podcasts was because I got tired of my music and didn’t want to spend time downloading new tunes. On a podcast, each episode is different.
- Train for a New Distance
For many of you it may be a half marathon or even a marathon or an ultra. 20K is not my longest distance but it is a new distance for me. Automatic PR 🙂
