How to keep running fun
Here are 6 tried and tested ways to keep running fun:
#1 Switch up your training routine
It’s always a good idea to switch up your training routine once in a while to keep it fun and exciting.
#2 Run with a friend or as part of a group
If you’re missing some much-needed companionship on your runs, then why not run with a friend or as part of a group.
Group running can have such a positive impact not only on your running, but your mental health too.
#3 Try a different route
Running is a great way to explore what your local area has to offer.
Research a different route and give it a try.
Trail running is becoming ever more popular as more and more people seek more adventurous terrains for their runs.
#4 Listen to your favourite podcast or audiobook
A podcast or audiobook offers some variety on your runs, and takes you away from your own thoughts.
#5 Try active travel
Instead of driving or using public transport to reach your destination, why not run commuting instead!
Whilst this requires a bit of forward planning, it’s a great way to get your weekly miles in and switch up your running routine.
#6 Sign up for a race or event
There are so many running races, events and challenges out there nowadays – all catering for different tastes and interests.
One of the best ways to rediscover your running mojo is to sign up for a race or event and become accountable for your runs.
Parkrun is probably one of the simplest ways to take part in an event. It’s free and takes place every Saturday morning in many locations across the globe.
