Running on the treadmill at the same speed and distance every other day can be monotonous. San Francisco has so many options to keep things interesting.  Here are a few tips to make sure your runs are never boring:

Change the Intensity. Interval training changes the pace of your runs. Alternate between fast and slow runs. An example of an interval training  is going hard for 30 seconds and easy for the next 30 seconds, do a couple of sets of this depending on your fitness level.

Take it outdoors. Give your eyes a change of scenery and your body a change in training ground by training outdoors. Trail running is an excellent way to challenge those muscles that you don’t necessarily use when running on leveled ground; especially your core muscles.

Hit the hills. I love the feeling of reaching the top of  a hill when I’m running. The adrenaline rush and excitement can be addictive. Hill sprints are a great way to change the pace of your runs; 15 seconds sprints up a hill or slope will get your heart racing faster than a leisurely jog around the park.

Sign-up for a Race. Having a goal in mind will keep you feeling motivated and challenged. It doesn’t matter whether you are a running newbie or a  race veteran; each race brings with it new sets of obstacles to overcome.
