To start a morning running routine and keep it going, you’ll need to schedule when you go to bed and be sure to give yourself enough time to get a solid night’s sleep. For those who have trouble falling asleep, this may mean giving yourself extra time in bed.
Exercising on an empty stomach is different, physiologically, from exercising after a meal. After an overnight fast, our bodies are reliant on fat as its primary fuel source, so if you exercise in the morning, before eating breakfast, you will essentially burn more fat.
Wake up early and do a slow, steady run before eating breakfast to help your body burn fat instead of more readily available carbs from food. Be sure to eat a healthy breakfast after your workout so your body can refuel and recover.
Morning run of about 30 minute is guaranteed to burn between 200-500 calories. That’s a great step forwards to your weight loss goal. Or splitting the bottle instead of having a glass. Whatever your goals and priorities are, calorie burning is always good news.
After running, eat lean protein and healthy carbs within 2 hours. These nutrients will support muscle recovery and replenish your glycogen stores. Also, drink water before, during, and after your run. It’s the best way to avoid dehydration due to exercise.
