Be prepared - for the 2020 Disney Virtual Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, that is. When training for a virtual race, it can be hard to differentiate between your regularly scheduled runs, your training runs, and the virtual race itself. We’re here to bring you our best tips on staying safe, motivated, and in the spirit for your virtual race.
Get In The Spirit With Some Magical Touches
Running is more fun when you have a theme! Save your all-out running kit for the race, but add some flair to your training runs with fun themed socks, bracelets, hair ties, or hats. This will keep you excited for the virtual race to come and will keep your training regimen feeling fresh.
Stick To Your Training Plan
Make a training schedule with specific days, times, and mileage you want to run. Once you’ve got a schedule planned, add reminders to your phone or in a daily planner to help you stay accountable. This will keep you focused on your goals, even on those days you may not feel like running.
Get Motivated With A Wickedly Fun Playlist
A run isn’t a run without some upbeat tracks to get you in the zone! Check out our official Virtual Disney Wine & Dine Wickedly Delicious Spotify playlist sponsored by AfterShokz for some motivation from your favourite ambitious Disney Villains here.
Stay Safe With AfterShokz Headphones
A cool playlist needs some equally cool headphones. The 2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend is powered by AfterShokz, and you should be too! AfterShokz headphones feature an open-ear design that allows you to hear both your music and your surroundings in order to keep you safe and entertained while running, so you don’t have to sacrifice your safety or your tunes. Check out all AfterShokz wireless headphone models here.
Run Somewhere You Love
If you dread running on the treadmill, don’t force it! Find a picturesque trail or quiet stretch of road instead. On the flip side, if you prefer to run in the air conditioning and watch your favourite Disney Movie while you log those miles, don’t train outside just because you feel that’s what you should do. Running somewhere you truly enjoy will make it easier for you to stay motivated and enjoy the training process.
