Running for Beginners

Running is a good way to keep fit and burn unwanted fat. It is easy to start, get in a sports store to buy running kit, do a shop fitting of whatever you buy because you don’t want your wears to look saggy on you and you are good to go. Just a word of caution before you hit the road; I will personally recommend that you see a GP to evaluate how fit you are. You only have one life to live so the assessment of a doctor is a prerequisite for taking to running. It is wise to make sure you are fit and don’t start with running long distances on the first day. Nobody in the world started that way and if anyone has told you that then I say here that it is all lies. Even the top athletes around the globe had to practice for long before they became the world renowned stars that they are now.

Once you get all the above in order then you are ready to run. Another important tip is that if you will be running with a group of friends on the first day; make sure that you don’t compete with them especially if they have been doing it before you. It is dangerous when you try to impress them and worse still if you have someone like me as a friend. I will want to show off that I have been in the game for long. A starter should not be caught doing this, give your body sometime to get used to the new activity. After sometime and with consistency, you will be able to run longer distances.
