I have never regret to stretch thoroughly to ease out the overused muscles that would otherwise cause ache next day. 💫 Stretching more after workout to improve recovery is the advice to keep for me. 💖 Static stretching, or holding a stretch for several seconds, is best done after my run.
Running outside in winter is a big decision, both mentally and physically, but following some golden rules it is much easier than I had thought.
Golden Rule One: A strong body will support your running, so don’t try to go from zero to hero, have patience and persistence in your practice, do the basic core exercises, stretch regularly. Stretching make you less sore the day after your run. Listen to your body and take rest when you feel you need.
Golden Rule Two: Proper running kit and trainers – They will make running easier and more comfortable. Also, they will give you motivation. Don’t forget the running bra that you will be grateful. Headphone is a significant accessory as listening up beat music makes your mood up. Be careful when you chose your headphone some are really good in the movement and some are not.
Golden Rule Three: Don’t eat so much before running. For me, everything has to be well blended – my favourite recipe is banana, oatmeal, dried berries, nuts and cinnamon. Y U M M Y and light!
