According to ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, the key to an early morning workout is putting on an outfit that ‘makes you feel like you’re invincible and can run at the speed of light’. Her outfit of choice for a cold winter morning? Standard Running Tights and the Ambition Running Tee paired with the Down and Ready Jacket.
Here are Sally’s morning workout running tips that every girl should abide by (trust us! This girl is so in shape and on her game it’s inspiring!):
Warming up and warming down is absolutely key in preventing injuries.
Make sure you have an active and lively warm up including; leg swings, lunges and only hold any static stretches for a short moment.
Post exercise take your time in doing a slow cool down jog and hold your stretches for an extended length of time. Make sure you sync your breathing with the stretches to go a little further.
Make your run fun and exciting…Go on an adventure! Look off the beaten path and try to always keep moving forward and not go back the same way you came!
Have someone drop you at a destination where you are just running to make it back home or to a friends’ house or your favorite cafe to meet up with everybody.
Use your surroundings wherever you may be in the world. Study your environment and find little challenges like a steep hill and create a super set around it.
3 sets of 5 sprint hills will send the heart rate through the roof and get the legs burning.
Don’t forget to Smile and enjoy yourself amidst all the pain!!! Chin up and always look ahead..
A Smile Will Take You The Mile!
