Wait, you are ready for the summer running season, aren’t you? After all, it is just a couple of weeks away and this summer promises to be the best one yet when it comes to sunny days here in the UK.

Let’s take a look at some ways that you can get ready for the upcoming summer running season:

Choose The Right Running Shoe- the most important piece of gear for any runner has to be their running shoes. Choosing the right pair of running shoes can make your run easier and could help you run longer and faster as well. Find a retailer that will properly fit you and that offers a wide range of running shoes in stock as this will give you more options to choose from.

Start Increasing Your Distance- this is something you should start doing in early spring, but any time is good. Increase your distance every week by 10%. That way, when the weather becomes warm and dry, you will be able to run farther than you ever have before.

Take A Day Off- don’t feel like you have to run every day. It’s okay to take a day off now and then to let your body rest and to help you focus on a new route or adding some new, high quality athletic gear to your collection.

Warm Up Properly- without a proper warmup, you risk injuring yourself and missing out on most of the upcoming running season. Be sure to stretch properly before and after your run and listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right, or you have a nagging pain that won’t go away, consult your physician.

    Getting ready for the summer running season is more about mindful preparation and having the right gear than it is about the actual running. By being fully prepared, you will have a much more successful running season this summer and well into next season.
