5 Tips for Running Outside

Published on:September 30, 2015

Five Tips to Run Outside

Now that the weather is getting cooler, running outside is becoming more popular. Check out these five tips for running outside so you can get the best out of your run!

1| Pay Attention

Paying attention is crucial when running outside! Unlike the treadmill, outside terrain is constantly changing. It is easy to zone out when running on a treadmill. Zoning out while running outside could cause a quick trip or fall, resulting in an injury. Watch your surroundings while running outdoors and always be aware of where you are stepping!

2| Bring a GPS

If you are running a new trail or road that you are unfamiliar with, be sure to bring a GPS so you avoid getting lost. A GPS will help you track your route and can even help you pace and time yourself!

3| Hydrate

If you don't plan to bring a water bottle with you, make sure you drink plenty of water before and after your run! Dehydration can limit your performance and even cause health issues while running. Check out this hydration calculator to see just how much water you should drink prior to your run!

4| Proper Gear

Now that it is getting cooler out, make sure you have the proper gear when running outdoors. Check out the weather prior to running and make sure you are dressed, ready for whatever weather conditions you may endure!

5| Shoes

Shoes are everything when running! Running outside is much different than running on a treadmill. Have the proper shoes so you can run smoothly while protecting your joints, ankles and feet. Check out How to Buy Running Shoes Online to help you find the perfect shoes for your outdoor run!
