Train Smart: A Program for Beginning Runners
Spring has finally sprung! If you took the winter off or you are feeling the urge to start running for the first time, here are some tips and a link to an excellent 8-week training program.
Take it easy: Try a progressive program that begins with more walking than running, then moves gradually into more running than walking.
Set attainable goals: Keep yourself motivated by setting short-term goals like run a mile without stopping. Once you are able to run the mileage you desire without stopping, focus on running three to four days per week.
Budget Time: Life happens, and we get busy fast so be sure to schedule your running time ahead. Be disciplined with your training. It will pay off in the long run.
Remember-foot pain is NOT normal: If you experience any persistent or severe pain, contact a podiatrist for evaluation. Jogging should not hurt.
