Beginner runner is exactly what the title says. Yes, I ran back in 2002 for a few years. One rule of thumb never stop running. Even if traveling abroad. Make it a priority.
Now it’s 2017 and I feel again like a beginner runner. It’s been a few days and I am taking it easy by running half miles in increments. Breathing is so important for beginner runners. The last few runs has been difficult and feels like my lungs are on fire. I focus on three things. Back straight, bent knees and slow breathing.
Right now I am running shorter runs till my breathing minimizes the feeling I get in my lungs as if there burning. Other than that its fun and helps the body and mind.
Wear comfortable clothes, good runner shoes and a forerunner GPS to measure your distance. Start with small runs and slowly build your stamina for further distances. I know for a fact it takes conditioning and consistency to fall in love and benefit from running. My schedule is pretty flexible nowadays which gives me time to run as often as I need too. As a self defense instructor running is a perfect complimentary for my overall health and wellness.
