Maintaining an optimum level of fitness is something that requires consistency and dedication, while treading a fine line so that you don’t burn yourself out. With just a few simple steps, you can stay on course. Dynamic stretching before a run followed by static stretching when it’s over are great ways to keep fit, and these can include anything from running to lifting and yoga, and more.
The first tip is a no brainer: take care of your body. A healthy diet and drinking plenty of water without over-hydrating will help you feel better over the long run. Do some stretching while warming up before and after a run. It’s tried and true, but a good night’s sleep will help keep your body—and mind—in good shape.
Take some days off. If you overexert yourself running every single day, your body is going to feel exhausted and you may end up injuring yourself or even start to dislike what you’re doing. Take a day off every once in while to recover and give yourself “rest days”. Try a different activity like swimming or a sport you wouldn’t normally play so you can focus on working other muscles.
Speaking of your mind, practice mental fortitude. While it’s important that you listen to what your body may be trying to tell you, push yourself to go that extra step. By getting past the mental barrier that’s saying “I can’t”, you’ll be able to improve your workouts and become that much better.
