|Running Shoes....gotta have the right ones!|
I prefer running first thing in the morning, for a few reasons. First, I get my running out of the way, it is done for the day, which means I don't have to think about it anymore! Second, I like starting my run before the sun has came up. Natures beauty is great running scenery! Finally, most official runs are in the morning. So my body is already acclimated to running in the morning, and it's ready for "race day"!
I love sticking to a schedule. I will print off the schedule, put in on my fridge and mark off each day that I complete. I am accountable and I get to see my progress. Sticking to a training program is going to help ensure that come "race day" you are ready! You will have put in the work, and your body and mind will know what to do! I LOVE THIS!
There are a lot of training programs online, find the one that fits your lifestyle best and stick to it!
