3 Tips to Help You Learn to Love Jogging
By Virginia Laird
Have you ever considered setting out on a lengthy jog as part of your exercise routine? This type of exercise can be relaxing, stress relieving, and work to clear the mind. However, there are some who cannot get past the thought of running for any amount of time. If this describes your feelings about this workout, there are things you can do to change your opinion. Fitness gurus suggests that those who do not enjoy running can slowly alter their view with a little effort and hard work. If you would like to learn how to love a jog, a few tips to try on your runs can include:
- Always charge your devices
- Create a good playlist
- Jog with a friend
Always Charge Your Devices
One of of the biggest workout kills is to have a good groove going only to have the device which is playing your exercise jams die half way into the routine. This happens to me far more than I would like to admit. When this happens I, like many, prefer to stop my workout and head to the house. Fitness experts advise those who rely on their music to make certain to head to the gym with fully charged devices. Don’t forget to plug in your phone, headphones, or whatever you may need to make it through the entire jog you have planned.
Create a Good Playlist
Another tip provided by fitness professionals is to have a playlist of music which empowers you enough to push through your feelings of wanting to quit. While you may love a certain genre of music to listen to, these tunes may not give you the beat and energy needed to make it the entire length of your jog. These same professionals suggest finding songs with good beats, some that may be in step with your stride. Creating a list you can love will take plenty of trial and error. Make sure your list has a few more songs than you think you will need so you can skip those that do not give you the boost you need.
Jog with a Friend
Jogging with a friend is a great way to keep your exercise fun and exciting. One benefit of running with a friend is that you have someone to help you remain on track. This can prevent you from not showing up to jog or quitting along the trail. Another benefit to jogging with a friend is the pleasure you can get from the conversation, company, and laughter your friend is sure to invite. Exercise is alway more fun with friends.
It is time to put these tips to the test, so charge your devices, call your friend and get ready to tackle the trail.
