5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Run

These five strategies can take the monotony out of your run training.

Running is by definition a repetitive sport, and to some people "repetitive" can mean "boring."  To prevent your miles from getting mundane, make these five changes to your run training.

Want to inject a sense of urgency into your training runs? Pick a goal race and sign up for it. Having a race on the calendar gives your running a focus and a sense of purpose. You know each step you take brings you closer to earning your finisher's medal, and—as long as you put in the work leading up to race day—feeling good when you do.
