How do I start running?
Updated: Jan 5
One of the biggest questions I get from new runners or people who want to run that haven’t yet is how do I start. The answer is a bit more tough love than I think people are expecting, but…
At the beginning, it almost always feels hard. Breathing sucks. Your legs feel like led.
Then the magic happens and all of a sudden you can run a little longer and it doesn’t suck quite as much as it did before.
So just start.
One of my favorite beginner run workouts is below. Let me know what you think if you try it!
Warm-up walk for 5 minutes
Run for 2 minutes
Walk for 1 minute
Repeat 4 times
Cool down walk for 5 minutes
