It all started when I had more time in the gym and I got bored with the classes. So, slowly I increase my time on treadmill, I did it by 5 minutes each time. With same speed but run longer. I did it every time I run. Next week, I increase the speed with same time length.
Without realizing it, I have already set some goals for myself. By the weeks go by, I can run for 45 minutes without stopping. My best time was 7km with 50 minutes of running...Not bad eh?
Now, every time I go to the gym I always spare 30 minutes on the treadmill for running, even though I have classes after wards.
Anyway, as a beginner runner, I've got some tips to share :
- Start easy and start with short duration.
- Focus on how long you can run and not the intensity
- Progress gradually
- Set a goal every week
- Last but not least, be patient. It takes time to be a good runner, especially for long distance. I'm still learning to be long distance runner.
Well, I hope my post today will give more motivation to run. Cheers!!
