It's cold, it's dark and all you want to do is curl up in bed with Netflix, but if you have a spring marathon, half marathon or even a shorter 5K or 10K on the calendar, you are going to have to drag yourself out to run in non-optimal conditions and yes....run in the winter! Here's how to make it easier.
GRAB A FRIEND
That's right, set a time to meet a friend to run with, that will help keep you accountable and motivated.
DO IT IN THE MORNING
If you get it done before life gets in the way, you are more likely not to skip it.
DON'T THINK, JUST DO
Don't start over thinking the run before you start, that makes your mind play games, it make the run feel long and insurmountable.
SAVE YOUR FAVORITE
Listening to a good audio book or podcast? Tell yourself you can't listen unless you are running!
BUY YOURSELF SOMETHING SHINY AND NEW
Nothing motivates better than a piece of new gear! See below for a few of our recommendations. (and get 20% OFF with the code WINTER at checkout)
