What pro runners do in the winter?

Most professional runners take some time off in the winter for good reason. The off season is a smart time to recover, reflect and think ahead to next year’s goals. The coaches here at Wholistic Running highly recommend using the winter strategically to ensure a successful 2020 running season. Here are some tips to do just that:

  1. Reduce your weekly mileage but keep running. We recommend still running at least twice a week to maintain fitness for the upcoming year.
  2. Focus on pre-hab exercises. Proper strength training in the off season can help prevent injuries and boost performance.
  3. Cross train and mix it up. Try new activities, not just physically but mentally as well. This will help keep you excited and motivated for next year’s goals.

Our very own Lindsey Hintz focuses on building strength in the gym but also works on her creativity during the off season. Check out the custom pieces she hand makes from antique barnwood and recycled barbwire:
