3 Ways To Motivate Yourself For Running Trinity Trails


Turn off your music once in a while to listen to your breath while you jog.

Lincoln Trinity Bluff offers convenient, onsite recreation, including spectacular views of Trinity River and access to the Trinity trails.  Don’t let the chill in the air stop you from keeping up your fitness routine this winter at this free, outdoor recreational amenity.  Take note of these three tips to give your running routine a jolt against the wintertime slowdown, so you can stick with your fitness resolutions in Fort Worth.

  • Refresh your workout playlist: Update your music playlist frequently to keep the beats fresh and your motivation strong.  Check out songs to get you moving from the Lululemon blog, JogTunes and Marie Claire.
  • Listen to your breath: Listening to music while you run may aid some more than others, but there are cons to running with music.  For instance, you tune out your breath and footstrike which cue you into how your body is doing, according to “Runner’s World.”  So unplug at least once in a while to experience the run without distractions and tune into your stride.
  • Participate in running groups: Try out a running group around Fort Worth, like the Fort Worth Runners Club.  Group running gives you extra motivation, competition to push yourself and accountability to stick with your goals and regimen, according to The New York Times.

Lincoln Trinity Bluff not only offers convenient, high-end apartment living but also amenities for health and fitness to keep up your active lifestyle.  As Lincoln Trinity Bluff residents, you have easy access to winding paths alongside the Trinity River only 10 minutes away from your apartment. The park offers more than 40 miles of trails for joggers, walkers, bikers, and even horseback riders.

Call the leasing office today at 1-888-318-9702 for more information on this upscale, urban hideaway in Uptown Fort Worth.
