Question:Hi, there. I'm from San Francisco where I am used to running year round, any time of day, and the temperature is always comfortable. Since I have been in Nicaragua, my running has stopped completely do to the extreme heat and humidity (nevermind the constant barage of cat calls from men). I no longer feel healthy, fit and sporty. I also need to run to stay on an even keel hormonally.
The only solution I can think of is to start waking up before it gets hot, around 5 or 6 am. But I am not a morning person!?! Please...if you have the magic advice that can motivate me to get my *** out of bed, please share. Looking for inspiration over here. Thanks.
Any tips on how to run faster?
The biggest struggle is getting out that door. Once you're out you'll be fine. Put your running clothes,shoes, and whatever else you use for your run by your bed and ready to go the night before. Try getting an alarm clock that can wake you up to some motivating music.possibly something that you like to listen to while running. Blare your stereo in the morning to keep you awake while getting ready to head out the door. Splash your face w/ cold water. Put a note by your bed for you to read in the morning that says "If you don't get up now for your run you will regret it for the rest of the day".or something like that.
Once you get use to waking up early.you will eventually become a morning person and wouldn't have it any other way. Good luck!
Running in the morning is tough, but once you get out there it is glorious. I think you should try and do it naturally and really motivate yourself for one morning at a time. I feel running is addicting and once i start i can continously get up and i think once you break the ice it will be smooth sailing.
How long do jogging shoes last unused and in the closet?
In the beginning your not gonna wanna get out of bed, but the more you do it, the more you get used to it, and the easier it will become. If you like running a lot, it should be easy to prop yourself out of bed. :)
