Change body habits
The excretory system and the stomach must also adapt to the daily wake up jog mode. During the first few runs, I often had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the race. Therefore, I have found a few tips to solve this problem. Firstly, if I wake up, I don’t feel bad about urination, I will exercise a little bit, doing a strong warm-up exercise to be able to solve right at home.
These ways, you only need to apply for the first few days, then the body can get used to the new habit and the running distance will be more complete.
Let the running become relaxing
One of the biggest obstacles in the first week is that sometimes the body is not ready for the morning run. It took me 5 minutes to brush my teeth, to wear the equipment, to get ready to wear, but while the brain was burning to run, my body was not.
Experts say that those who try to run up to the Boston Marathon‘s pace in practice often do not reach their actual running goals. However, when entering the competition, runners can run about 15% faster.
The early mornings helped me realize that it was not always necessary to run like a race. If I put in enough effort, I can still make great strides.
Step into the road in a relaxed way
I spend Saturday every week on long distance training with the goal of achieving a pace of 6:51. To achieve this, I need a new action plan. On weekends, I try a slightly different exercise method.
In order to get out of the house at 7am, I got up at 5am, took a shower and ate a small breakfast with peanut bran bread and bananas. After that, I also spent a few minutes listening to my favorite music list just for running time. When I got out the door at 7 o’clock, my mind was fully focused on the road ahead.
My body has now fully adapted to the jogging schedule every early morning. I am very happy to share these lines because the morning jogging made my day a little less stressful and I was getting closer and closer to my goal in the long run.
