Do you hassle up in the morning when you do not find a workout shirt to wear for jogging and then you waste your precious time? Has it ever happened to you that you’re just on the track and the song stops and then you find that the battery of your mobile phone has run out? Then what do you do in such situations? Of course, you feel bad and get frustrated. Well, if I’m not being harsh, let me tell you very straightforwardly that it is your own fault. Don’t be worried, as most of you encounter the same problems every day in the morning when you’re going to running. Therefore, to take you out of these terrible situations, I’ve come up with a list of things that you should never miss to do before bed. Check out these!
Check Weather Forecast
Always check the weather forecast for the next day and if it’s going to be rain, try to adjust your jogging timings before or after that. If it’s going to be raining for a long time then you should know so that you can at least sleep well or do some other chores. It’s extremely hard to go out for jogging in winters when the temperature goes to negative degrees. In that case, read great ways to stay fit and active this winter season.
Take Out Your Running Clothes
Once you have checked the weather forecast, take out your workout clothes accordingly. If it’s going to be a very low-temperature next day, prefer wearing a workout hoodie. You should be well prepared so that you don’t hassle to find appropriate clothes and end up going to the park wearing a t-shirt at low temperature and then end up falling ill.
Charge Your Devices
Any devices that you use to aid your running such as GPS watch to count steps, iPod for songs, or mobile phone for both of these, always charge them before you sleep. If I tell you about me, I can’t imagine running without music, so those days when I don’t have access to songs for whatsoever reason, my productivity declines to a minimum. This is what happens to most of us, perhaps. Similarly, if you’re making extra sprints someday and you don’t count how many calories you burnt that day, it demotivates you. So, avoid all such problems that lead to have lower productivity on the track by charging your devices before going to bed.
Fill Up Bottles
Water intake during running in small amounts is something everyone needs and without which you simply cannot do long runs on the track. If you’re leaving home without having a water bottle then it is damn sure that you’re not going to make more than 2 to 3 runs on the track. So, whatsoever the reason is. whether your water bottle is in the dishwasher or has been misplaced, it must be an unproductive day for you in terms of running. Therefore, I would strictly recommend to find the water bottle and fill it up before you sleep. This way, all you have to do is to pick up the water bottle rather than finding it and filling it up in the morning which only wastes the time.
Don’t Use Screens
It is now a commonly known fact that using laptops, mobile phone, or tablets before going to bed activate your brain cells that later make it tough to fall asleep. As the brain becomes more active and you face trouble in falling asleep, you ended up having a shorter sleep in the night. As a consequence, you will be tired and you will not be able to run properly. So, stop using screens at least an hour before going to bed.
Contact Your Running Partner
If you’re lucky to have a best friend with whom you run regularly, consider it a miracle. Anything done with a best friend is not a hectic work anymore. So, running is no exception and you can have a lot of fun with the best friend on track while having the same fitness goal. However, don’t make this strength as your weakness. Never miss your running session if your friend is unwell or can’t come that day. In such a case, always ask your friend before going to bed and confirm the next day’s plan. If you’re going on his car and he is not coming, you should arrange your own one for the next day. This can only be done if you already know that he is not coming tomorrow.
Running is one of the best cardio forms of exercise due to its utmost benefits especially when it is done outdoor.
