So…lately I’ve actually been moving around the time of day that I run, just to spice things up. I am really a morning runner at heart- but there are days that I really get huge benefits from running at lunch! So here are a few reasons why ‘RUNCH’ is absolutely the way to go.
–Your legs are already warmed up from the day. For me this translates usually to running faster. I’m sure people have different opinions about this but it takes me some time to get my legs moving in the morning. In the afternoon I am just more revved up and ready to go.
–By lunchtime I am just READY to get out of the office and get some fresh air. So I get my nature time and it recharges my brain to go back to work refreshed and productive.
–It helps keep things spicy running wise. In general I am just a fan of switching up the time of day that you run. For me it helps me to not get bored with the same ole same.
–Because miles usually taste better than that burger at the drive thru. And it helps me make better lunch choices in general. Usually I will just eat at my desk after I run and wash up at the gym next door which ends up working out great.
–It also makes me want to punch people less. You know, in general. I come back to work a pretty happy camper.
What is your favorite time of day to run?
Zero dark thirty usually…but RUNCH is a close second.
