Tips for going for a run

With the realisation that spring is on the way, and my summer body is now hidden far far beneath my winter body, I decided I wanted to try and get out and get running, and attempt to try and find a figure again. 

Having this little brainwave is all well and good... physically putting down the biscuits and getting out the house is another story. If you’re anything like me, and need a bit of inspo to get you out and about, working up a sweat, so I thought I’d share my little tips on how I drag my sorry self out the door. Hope these help and you’re inner Mo Farah comes flying out! 

By A Sassy New Outfit

This originally just started as an excuse to go shopping, but seeing my sassy new running draw in my gear actually made me excited to wear it and get out the house. And it doesn’t need to be expensive either, Primark and ASOS have some lovely, flattering pieces, so even if you don’t feel the part, at least you’ll look it!


Go With A Friend  

When I decide ‘I’m going to get up and go for a run tomorrow’, I can almost guarantee it won’t happen, I’ll find an excuse or busy myself with something else. But i plan to gowith a friend, I know I’ll always go, because otherwise I’ll have to cancel and if there’s one thing I HATE, it’s letting people down. This way we both get out the house and feel better for it when we get back. And collapse in a heap. 


Listen To A Podcast 

Tips for going for a runThis is a pretty new revelation for me, which happened by accident. I was listening to my favourite podcast, Fearne Cottons Happy Place, which is just so inspiring, and rushed out the door to meet my friend. I was enjoying the episode so much I continued to listen to it as I walked to meet her, and then it just carried it on from there. What I’ve found is, when I have music playing, I’m going for a run, listening to music. I know all the words and it doesn’t matter if I’m not concentrating. But then I listen to a podcast, I’m listening to a podcast while running. My whole mind set changed and when I did this for the first time I couldn’t believe I’d ran 4 miles so comfortably! (Probably not a long run for most people, but I was proud, so you go girl!)  

Set Reachable Goals

I’m never going to be someone who’s going to run every single day, and will get up early to fit it in before work, cause I am such a sleepy girl and love my sleep. So setting a few evenings a week, is much more achievable. Some weeks we only get out once and that’s fine, it’s better than nothing!

Sign Up For A Run

I dunno about you, but I am quietly... okay loudly, competitive. So if I’m going to sign up for a run, ain’t no chance I’m coming last. Me and my friends have recently signed up for a 8.5 mile fun run. Where’s the fun in that I hear you ask? Well. I have absolutely no idea, but either way, I know I can’t fluke an 8 mile run no matter how hard I try, so having this goal has really helped me push on!

I hope these have helped you get your running mojo back, and I’d loooove to hear your tips of getting yourself out and about!
