Fall is around the corner; however, we still have many more weeks of hot and humid days ahead. Unfortunately, the weather can make things even more confusing if you’re starting a new training program. Don’t fret! I have you covered. I reached out to the folks over at Six:02 to help put together some essentials to help you train stress free. (Especially if you’re training for their upcoming 6k)!
6 Fitness Tips for Stress Free Fall Training
Check out my easy six fitness tips will help you transition from summer to fall and keep you stress free for hitting the pavement.
Purchase Transitional Fitness Clothes
Purchase fitness clothes for a variety of temperatures. I highly recommend long tanks, as they are breathable, easy to layer and very stylish. Capri tights are always a go-to as they are perfect for any season and workout.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen is Vital
You can get sunburn in any season so don’t forget to apply sunscreen. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sunscreen is one of the most vital items used in helping to reduce skin cancer and other skin diseases.
Switch Out Shoes
Since your feet are slightly bigger in the summer and smaller in the winter, now is the perfect time to have a foot analyst and purchase new running (or fitness) shoes. I recommend always having two sets of shoes as a runner so that you can rotate each week or as needed.
Replace or Purchase Workout Essentials
Now is the perfect time to replace any old electronics, hydration bottles, socks, towels and other fitness items you may use daily. With newer models releasing and tons of fall sales, stock-up and prepare for the upcoming training season.
Hydrate. Hydrate. Eat. Hydrate.
Don’t forget to hydrate and replenish the body with healthy seasonal foods after a workout to replenish your hair and body. My go-to post workout meal is a hearty salad and coconut water.
Prep for On the Go
Now that fall is around the corner, I am extremely busy with events, trips and meetings. I always keep a protein bar and fruit in my bag to ensures, I won’t reach for the tempting M&Ms while out. Quest, Lara, and Kind Bars are some of the most popular ones.
