Beginning anything isn’t easy. You probably don’t know much about what you’re doing, what you’re supposed to be doing and whether you’re doing it wrong or right.
- When you are a beginner, things go pretty smoothly. Even if you train slowly or short, it will always have a positive effect on your condition. So make sure you train easily in the first 2 months, you don’t want to have any injuries. After all, your body needs to learn how to recover.
- Running for longer distances can be hard and heavy. But in a few weeks, that distance will already look a lot less heavy. This is not only because your physical condition will be better, but also because you’re mentally ready for it: you will now know that you can run for a longer distance.
- Make reasonable goals. Make sure that you will be able to achieve it. Don’t make a goal too easy either, you don’t wanna achieve it within 3 months!
- Always do a warmup before your training and a cooling down afterwards.
- Beginners often try to run too fast. You should be able to talk while running. That means you should get a heart rate of 75-85% of your anaerobic treshold. That treshold is about 220 – your age – 15.
- Use running shoes that are appropriate for your running style, foot size, body weight and training environment.
- If you are quite heavy, then don’t forget to buy shoes with extra stability and shock absorbers.
Advantages of better physical condition:
– you will have A LOT more energy!
– you will be more productive and be able to concentrate better
– you will sleep better
– you will look better
– you will be in a better mood (because of the endorphins that are released while sporting)
– you will have a better sex life ;).
