Let’s face it, winter is tough. Cold, dark, and even colder–winter presents a set of challenges that can make it hard to stay motivated to reach your fitness goals. But winter is only temporary and can serve as a perfect time to lay the groundwork for a successful spring and summer season.
1. Identify Concrete Goals for the Upcoming Season
Having goals, such as specific races, will give you motivation, purpose, and direction for winter workouts. With nothing to look forward to, winter can end up being way too long.
2. Try Something New
Looking to shake it up? Winter is a great time to try a new class or workout.
3. Redefine ‘Fit’
Remember, your winter fitness is not the same as your in season fitness. I am definitely not in my prime running shape right now, but am learning that it’s ok and to redefine my winter fit to focus on strength.
4. Explore Motivation
Sometimes we all need a little extra push, and winter requires a little extra creative motivational techniques. Tactics your don’t normally use–such as music, reading, or pictures that remind you of your goals–can give you the energy you need to keep going strong.
5. Go Easy on Yourself
Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment and depression this winter. Set reasonable goals and be forgiving.
What are your tips for staying fit in the winter?
