The end of summer can be very bittersweet. While it’s sad to say goodbye to this warm season, there are a lot of exciting things that lye ahead for the fall. One of the best parts of the autumn months is how it can help you get back into your fitness program. Here are five reasons why you will be fit this fall.
1. Steady Schedule
Summer schedules are different for most people. The past three months have been filled with vacations, taking care of children that are out of school and summer work hours. September means getting back into your regular schedule, which makes it easier to plan time to work-out. Consistency is the key to getting and staying on track with your fitness regimen.
2. Fantastic Weather
Fall weather can be very motivating. The cool air is great for outdoor bootcamps, walking, running and biking. Remember those 90 degree days when you either skipped your run or opted for the treadmill. In the fall, overheating isn’t a big concern.
3. Autumn Activities
With a new season comes new activities. In the fall you can say goodbye to sitting in your air-conditioned house and step outside for a walk in the park to look at the fall foliage. Some other activities to enjoy are apple and pumpkin picking, hiking or getting into the spirit of Halloween with a walking ghost tour.
4. Road Races
Fall is a popular time for local road races. Many race directors schedule their events during the autumn months. The attendance is higher because of the great weather and availability people tend to have in the fall. Take advantage of these racing opportunities. On Cool Running you can find local 5Ks, 10Ks, Half-marathons and more.
5. Calm Before The Storm
Remind yourself of how crazy December can be. The holidays will be filled with food, shopping, parties and lots of chances for you to veer off of the track to reaching your fitness goals. Use the next couple of months to stay dedicated and motivated to improving your health. Take advantage of everything the fall has to offer before you become consumed with the holiday season.
Use the fall season to get back into fitness and have some fun while you do it!
