Spring has sprung so there’s really no reason not to dust off those trainers and start running again. Below we’ve listed our top four reasons to get outside and start clocking up the kilometres.
Get social with it
With the added sunlight and warmer weather comes an abundance of road runners taking advantage of the improved conditions. The perfect opportunity to make new friends or catch up with old ones, there’s no excuse not to grab your favourite pair of AfterShokz headphones and head out for a social run.
Plenty of practice for a marathon
Taking on either a full or half marathon is no mean feat, however signing up for a race is a great way of ensuring that new runners stay motivated to get outside. The beauty of starting training in the Spring is that you’ll be running fit by the end of the year, giving you the opportunity to take part in Autumn races such as Royal Parks half, the Yorkshire Marathon and the Great South Run. AfterShokz headphones are approved to be worn in all England Athletics races (unlike traditional sports/running headphones) making them the ideal piece of kit for training and racing.
The scenery is changing
When the world is going through its own rebirth in the form of Spring, it’s criminal to stay indoors and miss it. Check out the flowering trees and sprouting daffodils for yourself by pulling on a pair of running shoes and AfterShokz headphones whilst pounding the pavement. Whether running along the Thames or trekking through the New Forest, Spring is the best time of the year for outdoor running so don’t let it leave you in its wake.
Goodbye darkness my old friend
Gone are the days when early mornings and late nights mean running into the abyss. With Spring comes an increase in daylight that makes those before or after work runs much more manageable. Whether it be a 5k through the park, or something off the beaten track, the improved visibility opens up a whole network of running paths that absolutely demand to be trodden.
