Running would have to be one of the easiest and cheapest forms of exercise that you can do. The health benefits, cardo workout and physical activity can be benefical to nearly everyone.
Whether it is indoors on a treadmill, out on the streets or around a track, running can accommodate everyone and all types of fitness levels from beginner to elite. Most professional sports people and athletes include running in their training programs to build up strength, fitness and endurance.
So how serious are you about running? Is it something you do for pleasure and fun or is it your lifelong dream to run a marathon? And are you doing it right?
Don't expect to run 40km's on your first outing. Like all sports, it takes time, effort and practice to build up your fitness and capability to run. Start out walking (power walking) for a few km's every couple of days for a week or two before you introduce jogging and build up to running your desired distance.
Make sure you warm up and stretch before and after your run to avoid injury.
Check with your doctor if you have health concerns or pre-existing aliments.
Did you think that it was just put one foot in front of the other at a fast pace than a walk? I did. If you're going to get serious about running, how about check out your technique first and you might be surprised at the improvements and reduce the risk of injury along the way.
Marathon running is for those of you who love distances. Common marathons are 10km, 21Km (half marathon), or full length at 42km.
Running these distances involves a great amount of discipline, endurance and motivation.
