If you are new to running or just about to begin, motivation can often be the hardest obstacle to overcome. In the following article I’ll be giving you my top beginner running tips that have been integral to successes over the last year.
Start at a slow steady pace and hold it for at least 5 minutes, if you feel comfortable gradually speed up. You should never get out of breath but if you do start to struggle just lower your pace never stop or walk. Once you build up a little experience your correct pace will come naturally.
A target is very important to your progress, without one you may be inclined to give up too easily. Use your target as motivation for your run, it could be run a marathon within 2 years or losing 2lb within a month it does not matter.
Many running related injuries are reoccurring which could put you back to square one if you are not very careful. To get back to full fitness after a lengthy time injured take a lot of small runs, and if you feel any signs of it coming back stop immediately.
