Benefits of running in the night

Miss Mevi invites you to run afterdarkHello everyone! As you all might already know, I love a lot my family and spending time with them, then I love eating healthy and specially avocado dishes, and after that I love my work. But of course, I love working out, I practice yoga and running. Running is a simple and flexible form of exercise that requires little in the way of special equipment or facilities. In comparison to running, jogging is gentler on your knees, hips and ankles. You can lose weight practicing any of them.

Running late at night has certain distinct benefits from running in the evening. In terms of scheduling, running late at night allows you unrestricted time between the end of a typical work day and your bedtime.

Jogging for weight loss works best when worked into your daily routine at a consistent time, and you may have more availability to jog at night than in the mornings before the day’s commitments.

In hot climates, night-time temperatures are more favorable for jogging, and you will avoid the risks of sunburn or heatstroke associated with running during daylight.

While running in the night you won’t be thinking about the daily activities waiting for you at work, so you might feel much more relaxed.

Besides, you will burn out all the energy gathered from all your daily meals. Burning out all that energy will help you to sleep better and deeply, so say good bye to insomnia!

Runners training at night should also adhere to other common sense guidelines:

  • Run against traffic. It’s easier to avoid traffic if you can see it and they can see you.
  • Wear light colors at night. White running attire is the easiest to see at night, but orange and yellow are also appropriate. Black, brown, dark blue or green are not recommended.
  • Run behind vehicles at intersections. Even if a car or truck has stopped at a stop sign, there’s no guarantee the driver has seen you.
  • Don’t wear headphones. Wearing headphones diminishes a runner’s ability to hear a car horn, a voice or a potential attacker.
  • Wear a billed cap and clear glasses. The bill of a cap will hit an unseen tree branch or another obstacle before the obstacle hits your head. Clear glasses will protect your eyes from bugs and other unseen obstacles.
  • Vary your routes. A potential attacker can watch for runners’ patterns and loom in a particularly dark or isolated area.
  • Run with a partner. There’s strength in numbers. If you don’t know runners who enjoy working out at night, you have one more excuse to meet new friends!
  • Try to make eye contact and acknowledge a driver. The interaction, however brief, could save your life.

Please be safe while practicing any exercise. I hope you enjoy running afterdark, if you do tell me how do you like it!

Until the next time!
