These tips are designed for people who are new to running and are taking part in Depaul’s Marathon in a Month in April Challenge.
Get the Right Shoes:
Wearing the wrong running shoes can lead to injuries. If you’re in any doubt about your runners, go to running store where trained salespeople can advise you.
Make a Plan:
Do you want to run every day, or do you want to start walking and build slowly? Decide how many times a week you’re going to exercise, on what days and at what times.
With current Covid-19 guidelines it might not be possible for you to train with someone else, but you can virtually connect with other people who will keep you motivated and the Facebook group is the perfect place for this.
Enjoy the Journey:
Your real enjoyment will come from not focusing so much on the end-goal. By being in the moment you will find it easier to bounce back from any set-backs and come up with new approaches. And you’ll also have a lot more fun!
