8 Fun Things To Do While Running
#1 Avoid running on the same route
sometimes our body become habitual for same running track and we don’t fee energize while running, Same track, Same Place or even same people you meet while running are the main factors of boredom. My suggestion is to you that always try a new place or track in a month for a change. You will feel better and energetic.
#2 Avoid running at the same pace
You run 5Km or 10 KM but you don’t feel challenged because you run at the same pace and your body becomes habitual of it. you don’t feel challenged and your run becomes bored for you. Always try to play with your pace in between runs.
#3 Find a local running group
If you are new and not able to improve your endurance, pace, and duration then a running group can be helpful. It helps you because of people of the same interest, with the experienced people you learn and improve day by day.
#4 Long run for endurance
Long-distance running, or endurance running, is a form of continuous running over distances of at least 3 km (1.9 mi). Physiology Physiologically, it is largely aerobic in nature and requires stamina as well as mental strength. if you go for a long run then you become mentally strong and overcome your boredom.
#5 Hill workouts to build strength
