Running 101: How to Be Motivated to Run and Train in the Winter

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | running tips

Does running in the winter sound crazy?  Maybe it is…or maybe it’s the most amazing thing ever.  Can you guess where I stand?

I love running in the winter.  It’s okay, you can call me crazy.  But if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I can’t stand running in the heat and humidity so this time of year is perfect for me!  I also love the fact that there are far fewer runners on the trail so running outdoors can be a much more peaceful experience!  Still, sometimes it’s tempting to just stay inside on the couch, especially after a long day!

For those of you who struggle with the motivation to run or are trying to get started to run this winter, I thought it would be helpful to share my tips on how to make running a routine this time of year.  This post is the kickoff to my Running 101 series on the blog!  If you’re a more advanced runner, there’s nothing wrong with using this as a quick “review class”!

Here are the other posts I’ve written for Running 101:

Love Run Half Marathon Training Week 5 Recap

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | blogging , training

Welcome to the start of another week!  Did you watch the Super Bowl?  I was in heaven watching the Falcons destroy the Patriots play after play, then the next thing I know, while I start getting ready for work the game completely turns around!  I couldn’t care less about either team, but I can’t stand Tom Brady…congrats to the fans?

In any event, I’m continuing to train for the Love Run Half Marathon and things continue to overall go pretty well!  I’m glad that I can share my weekly recap with you!

I’m joining Courtney of Eat Pray Run DC for her Winter Training Recap linkup and HoHo and Tricia for the Weekly Wrap!  These are great ways to keep accountable and share your workouts with fellow fit-minded individuals!
