We cannot do anything about the hot weather but what can you do to add excitement to your running despite of the heat?
So here’s what I do (recommend):
- Run in a NEW PLACE.
It is so easy to get in a rut. We open the door and go for a run. Or we run near where we work. It’s fast and simple. We are busy people.
Recently I ran at Thatcher Park. I had never been here. My running seemed effortless because I was just looking around at the scenery.
- BUY something NEW to WEAR.
It doesn’t have to be Skirt Sports. Buy a new pair of shoes, a hat or even socks.
I know that we all probably have more running clothes than we can wear and this stuff ain’t cheap.
So I found this cheap pair of compression sleeves at Amazon for $9.95. They made me smile – that and my goofy friends.
- Run a NEW DISTANCE
It doesn’t have to be challenging like a marathon. What about a one mile race? Or a 4 or 5 mile race if you’ve never run one.
I am actually running a 8 mile race
and a one mile race in August.
Both are NEW distances for me.
- Try SOMETHING NEW.
That could mean do a Duathlon or a Triathlon or something you’ve never done before.
For me, it meant running with a group on a trail.
I didn’t fall. It was fun. I enjoyed it. Who knew?
- Download NEW MUSIC or a NEW PODCAST.
It’s always exciting to change up what you listen to.
I recently started listening to the soundtrack to Hamilton. Soooo good.
I have a few new podcasts that I want to listen to as well.
Since today is Tuesday, I’m also linking up with these ladies.
Happy Running! Happy Running! What have you done NEW with your running this summer?
