When the heat lets go of its grip and leaves start to turn yellow, a new and special time awaits. Fall with its cool temperatures and beautiful colors are guaranteed to bring you joy. If you have targeted your training towards running events during summer and early autumn, it might be time to slow down, and choose longer distances in a lower pace. If you aren’t ready to lessen your training-intensity, here are some good advice for keeping your joy of running when winter approaches. Even when the weathers seem sad and grey…

Join fall runs
There are many running events all year around. By joining an event, for instance trailrunning the forest in November, you create a point of orientation for your training. At motionslob.dk/løbskalenderen, you can find runs in the forest, in the city and at the beach – even on islands and parts of the country, you might not get to visit.

Wear the right clothes on top
When temperatures drop, you need more clothes – save the singlet and bring out the light, waterproof and breathable running jacket. For instance this lightweight jacket BLACK WIND JACKET with windprotection. It is water repellent and the ventilationpanels ensure airflow – comes in a pretty color for women i letvægtsmateriale med vindbeskyttelse. Den er vandafskyende, og ventilationspanelerne sikrer åndbarheden – her i en flot, frisk farve til kvinder.

And on your legs
A pair of tights that cover your knees are perfect for fall. See these moisture wicking ICONIC POWER TIGHTS in a stretchable fabric that gives your muscles great support. When you choose running clothes in great synthetic tech-materials, you can be sure that it won’t be your clothes that kill your joy of running.

Put on a hat
Wearing a running cap is a great idea – it can function as a small umbrella in the rain, and if you keep your head dry, the weather might not feel as wet. This unisex-cap Running Cap 90934-060 is made in polyester, has an adjustable strap and a perfect shape.

Look down
The trails in the forest are often covered in wet and slippery fallen leaves. How beautiful they may seem, they can also be very slippery. Choose a running-shoe with an outsole that has a strong section and a breathable membrane. A pair of trail-shoes can help you steer clear of the slippery nature.

Warm up
Slippery trails and roads enhance your risk of straining your feet. Make sure to warm up your joints, before taking off: Stand on one foot and spin the other around, so you’ll get your foot stretched in the outer positions. Walk on your toes. Place the outermost part of the feet on the step of a stair and lift your body up and down. This exercise warms up your ankle joints and Achilles  

Have fun!
