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:

Do you run ever run early in the morning or late in the evening?  I used to love running early in the morning before work, but once Daylight Savings ended, it just wasn’t safe for me to be out there on my own since it was still dark outside.  I had to readjust my running schedule to run after work, which was much less convenient.  Now that I have Knuckle Lights, it’s a game changer!
