Tips For Winter Running From Olympic Gold Medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill

There should always be a method behind the madness and what could be better than learning some skills from the best in the world. There are separate tricks and techniques for running in different environments. For example, there should be a different preparation when you are running in summers and the same goes for running during winters.

In this article, we will have a look at some tips for running in winters from the Olympic gold medalist, Jessica Ennis-Hill.


● Plan About it

If you have to achieve anything, the first and foremost thing that you need to do is to make a plan about it.

It's always better to have a running partner and make such plans with someone whom you know wouldn't back down and will motivate you towards your goals.

Before leaving your apartment for a run, you must know your route, you must know where you would take a stop and you must also plan everything about returning to the apartment as well.

The more well-planned the run will be, the better yield it will give in the long term.


● Get The Best Shoes

According to Jessica, when you are running in cold weather, the shoes become the most important part of your running attire. You need such shoes that will help you to maintain heat in your shoes and keep your feet away from any kind of outside moisture.

Jessica suggests that an optimal shoe for running in winters must have the following qualities:

  1. A sole with nibs and grooves
  2. Strong Midfoot
  3. Dress According To Weather

When you are running in winters, the best thing you can do is to enclose yourself in layers upon layers and that will help you to stay away from the adversity of winters.

Don't be naive and wear shorts and a sleeveless top to the running track.
Try to maintain a temperature of 10 degrees Celsius higher than the outside temperature. It will help you a lot with your running and also will prevent the body from stiffening up.


● Strength Training

Don't forget to add a hard-core strength training routine to your schedule during winter. It will help you to stay fit and run a lot longer.
