It's that time of year again. As the Christmas holidays approach, our calendars start filling with office parties, social get-togethers, and festive drinks specials. The "occasional night out" the rest of the year descends into a seeming month-long bingefest in December. Unfortunately, that also means our regular running schedules end up taking a back seat in our weekly diaries. But setting aside the time to run can help keep us in the Christmas spirit.
Running regularly will help you maintain a high energy level, which can give you that extra drive to finish off the last of your shopping and keep you going at the office party until that very last congo line. Who says moderation is prudish? Having a run to do the next day might make you think twice about that extra glass of prosecco, and ward off those pesky hangovers to boot. Combat holiday lethargy by keeping active outside. What better way to catch up with relatives and friends than on a brisk walk or casual jog in the winter air and then feel ready for the next course of turkey dinner.
Careful planning that include physical exercise during the holidays will help you keep feeling jolly and make you the life of the party. Why not try one of EFR's regular weekly runs this December?
