Wake up early to catch the morning run benefits: see the city like a few can see, in its very unique moments and colors!
Let’s use the first light of the sun for a run in Venice, Verona, Milan and Florence.
This is the best occasion to enjoy the empty streets in the early morning hours before a busy day start.
We know that it might be difficult to jump off your bed but the reward is just behind the corner…
No matter the climate, everything takes on breathtaking beauty in the warm hues surrounding a sunrise; the trees glisten with due, the sand glows pinkish-orange, and the snow actually sparkles. It’s like running through a painting or a Disney movie.
And what about the air!? It is not only cooler and more comfortable for running in the morning, but it also holds less pollution.
Taking those miles to reconnect with your natural surroundings has a reinvigorating effect:
Running in the morning can help you feel like you gained a couple hours in your day. It’s also a great way to give yourself an energy boost, and feel like you’ve accomplished something right from the start. Studies have shown that exercise can increase mental acuity for up to 10 hours post workout! Best to put this to use with an AM workout rather than wasting all that added focus on the hours we are sleeping.
You may even find that a morning run is easier to fit into your schedule and that it helps keep your exercise routine consistent. AM exercisers tend to be more consistent over the long haul with their routine. And we all know that consistency is KING when it comes to results!! This is likely because as the day progresses life gets in the way or we feel too exhausted after the stress of a fully work day to hit the gym.
And why don’t take advantage of a morning running tour to combine sport and culture?
The TOP city tour is particularly suited for people traveling for pleasure or business, as it gives them a chance to experience the city despite a busy schedule.
Don’t miss the opportunity to get an overview of a new place by running with a local guide!
