Has anything like that ever passed through your mind? Today we will be discussing tips on:
for those who want to get fit this way!
Tip no. 1 Don’t procrastinate running.
One of the best tips on how to start running is to start today.
The longer you think about it, the longer you’ll have to figure out excuses against it. You know what, if you really want to start running, go for it as soon as you’ve read this article, even if it is for 10 minutes or so.
If you’re discouraged because you feel tired – try to get past that thought and just go for it!
Running is one of those things you do, and then when you finish - it leaves you feeling improved & refreshed (even if you were really tired beforehand).
If you’re discouraged because you feel like you don’t have the right shoes, don’t let that put you off either.
You can totally keep it simple. As you begin running you can just start off with comfortable shoes that will not get ruined, and then you can progress to proper running shoes (which you will just love).
During the winter it may be harder to run outside, especially if you live in a place where you get loads of snow of the ground.
Nevertheless, totally use opportunities when outside conditions are reasonable. Open your front door and start running around your area for a while, then come in and warm up with a delicious hot chocolate.
Indoor running venues normally have running tracks inside where you can run, jog and enjoy sprinting around. Check your local gym for such facilities. This way you don’t have to abandon your running program during the cold, winter period.
Make the most of the warm weather, and summer. Get more involved in running!
If you live somewhere were the weather is fine all the time and the ground doesn’t get slippery in winter- congratulations.
You’ll be fine pretty much all year round.
The most motivating time to start running is during the spring/summer, not just because the weather is good for it, but because people are generally more motivated to exercise outdoors in preparation for the warmer months (and beach bodies).
But if you are in the heart of winter now – don’t leave your running plans to the next six months.
I definitely have to say that sports days at school had a massive influence on my love for running.
You learn and improve a lot, during the process of sports day-type activities.
If you still have a opportunity to get involved in school sports days – I would definitely recommend that you make the most of the opportunity.
If your school days were a long time ago, you can still get together with some pals and organize a running/sport event day.
Having something to look forward to is a great way to keep you running and make amazing memories along the way.
Why do so many people on this planet love running for exercise?
Well, for one thing, sometimes it’s most enjoyable to keep it simple. Running for exercise is not a fad – people have been doing it for centuries. It’s refreshing, it’s very versatile and IT’S CHEAAAP!
It’s also quite easy to build up.
Set targets regarding the distances, time and frequency you want to start running at, and go from there.
Research running tips so you can increase your knowledge, and hear from people who also enjoy running and have become good at it.
Don’t try to go faster than you can, you don’t want to resign after your first time running. There’s no hurry, take it easy. There is joy in taking it slow at first and then progressing.
Running isn’t a walk in the park, especially as you work harder and you get to a level you yourself will be amazed at.
So never quit, and expect to get tired and have occasional aches and pains.
But, hey remember than being tired is not a reason to quit.
Eat a lot of fruit, veggies and whole grains as you start your running plan.
Provide your body with wholesome nutrients and don’t weigh it down with ‘nonsense’ foods.
If you want to get serious with running, you should try your best to eat very well, as it’s equally as important as the physically journey.
You don’t need to go on some crazy diet though.
Think about improving your diet if you know you aren’t doing well now. Try to keep things in balance, but enjoy your meal times.
Running is a beautiful thing that you can carry on doing for a long time.
You can become a runner for life, by developing your love for running and keeping at it. You will do much to increase your well-being and your energy level.
There are many reasons why you may want to start running. Focus on the reason that has the most meaning for your life and pursue it with devotion. Invest in your personal fitness and an activity so ageless and revitalizing.
