I was never all that fit, infact I was a total gaming potato who one day decided enough was enough. Back in February I started running and I was terrible but I found a few little things that helped me along the way and through these I was able to gradually push up my running distance each time Until I managed to tackle a full half Marathon myself.
1. Out of Breath? Thats cool.. run for a minute and then walk for a minute. Alternate for 15 minutes and then on the next run, try running for two minutes and walking for one minute.. so on and so forth. It’s called Interval Training, give it a google. :)
2. Pick out a place close by with a nice view that you think you can run towards and go there. When you reach your destination reward yourself the view at hand, be it the top of a hill over looking the city, or a cool still lake. You’ll feel like you really earned it and it’ll give you a little mood boost for the jog back.
3. forget about the numbers. Keep your eyes away from your watch and your mind off the miles. Just listen to your body and let your mind wander away. If your lucky you’ll even hit that magic little zone where nothing matters to the point where you almost forget you’re even running. 9 months ago
How I did it: Use the Couch to 5k program. The best iPhone app is "Get Running"... There are others for android and IOS. This will keep you disciplined and structured to get you to 30 minutes of running non-stop. After that, do at least two shorter 2-3 mile runs during the week, and a long slow run on the weekend. Every weekend increment one additional mile until you get 10 miles. Do not increment too much or add too many miles in a week otherwise you will get hurt. Read how I did it… 11 months ago
