Running Tips for People Who Hate Running
I always wanted to be the girl in the cute leggings that you see running near the beach while you're in your car driving to get super fattening burritos. But I just couldn't do it. Running was something that I really hated even in elementary school. Once I got serious about fitness though, I realised I had to change! So here are my tips (from a girl that hates running!) on how to become a runner! - Take it slow. Find your own pace. Starting on a treadmill first helps and and will get you working towards a faster speed. - Run in intervals. You aren't going to run 5 miles straight the first time. Plus, interval training is great for your metabolism! Try alternating between walking for a minute and then running for a minute. Find your comfort zone. - Always wear running shoes: Not all sneakers are created equally. Check out your local shoe store and make sure your current pair is a good running shoe. You don't want to injure yourself! - Watch your breathing: Side cramps are no pleasant and simple breathing helps you avoid it! Periodically, take a deep breath in through your nose and a big exhale out of your mouth. This will help get your breathing under control. - Listen to your favorite music: Running playlists are SO important! They motivate you to keep going and help you find the right pace. - Know when to stop: Don't push yourself too hard. Know your limits and don't push them too far. You want to challenge yourself, but not hurt yourself.. - Run with friends: Most activities are more fun with others, and running is no exception. Your friends can encourage you to keep going and to run just a little bit further. Just don't go out for ice cream afterwards!
