You've decided to start running, and that's great! The first step is to choose a running route. If you're on a treadmill or elliptical machine in your home, start slowly and slowly build up to your desired distance. If you're going outside, wear good shoes that support your feet and give you the right cushioning.
Download an app
- There are fitness apps available for free download, and they can help you track your progress and find new running routes and meetups with other runners. Some even offer live tracking of your route on the map!
- If there’s one thing I've learned from running my first marathon back in 2016, people love to talk about experiences with others who share similar interests. So if you have friends or family who love running too (or at least like discussing it), then why not join them? Check out some of these great apps:
Sleep like a baby
Sleep is your most important training tool when you're a new runner. Your body needs sleep to recover from injuries or other issues that may have occurred throughout the day and night. Sleep also helps with muscle growth, bone density, immune system function, and more!
Did you know you can lose weight while sleeping as well?
Don't overdo it at the beginning.
Don't start running if you haven't run in a while. If you’re new to running, start with walking, run for 10 seconds, and walk for 1 minute.
This is a really really good way to get your body used to distance without hurting it—or at least not feel like it will kill you! Run/walk intervals are also great for beginners because they help build strength and endurance while still maintaining the fun factor of running around town or through nature (or both!)
Running can benefit you, but it is important to prepare for running.
Running can benefit you, but it is important to prepare for running. The most reliable way to do this is by downloading an app that tracks your run and allows you to input information about your performance. You should also ensure that you sleep enough, eat foods with high blood sugar levels (such as potatoes), drink plenty of water, and avoid caffeine after noon.
It's also important not to overdo it at the beginning, so try not to set yourself up for failure by making large goals or promises about how much weight or distance per week or month you can achieve - just stick with small steps towards achieving them! It’s best if someone else runs alongside at first - especially if they are newbie runners themselves; it’s easier than trying everything on their own the first time because they don't have any preconceived ideas about what might work best depending upon circumstances like weather conditions, etcetera."
