As most of you know I am a solo runner. I have been doing it for a few years and am used to it. Just like there are benefits of running with a group, there are also benefits of running solo. Reading along to find out those benefits.
🏃🏽♀️ No one is waiting for you. Running late? No problem. Want to skip the workout? No problem either.
🏃🏽♀️Time alone. I know I am an introvert but also enjoy being in a group. However, just like some runners want that time to talk and catch up with others, I look forward to that time alone. I like starting my day with a run. During this time I am lost in my own thoughts. I think about my life, the things that I have to do, things that are going on, etc. Or sometimes I listen to music. Last year with everything that was going on, I looked forward to this time alone.
🏃🏽♀️ Your own workout/pace. I have a coach and have specific workouts/paces for them. Even without a coach, you decide how far to run, how fast, when to stop, route, etc.
🏃🏽♀️ Just get up and run. There is no need to make plans to meet someone at a specific time and location. I love being able to get out and start my run. Again, best way to start the day!

I’m a solo runner as well. I can see how solo runs would be crucial for you to keep your streak going- you need to be able to run at whatever time of day is most convenient for you- trying ti meet up with people would be too stressful.
That is true!
Starting your day with a solo run sounds so nice and calming!
Thinking about the upcoming day and getting mentally prepared for it during a run is a great idea. How is your streak going?
Thanks, Catrina. It is going well. Today, Thursday, is day #335. It will be one year next month!
I’m definitely a solo runner. I love the time alone!
I like both running solo & with a friend (or group). Benefits to both 😉
Absolutely! It is all about one’s preference.
