Tips for Newbie Runners

The Ultimate Newbie Runner Tip Sheet:

Invest in the right pair of running shoes.

Go for distance rather than time – slow it down, be patient, and don’t worry about your pace.

 Remember that rest days are training days, too.

Join a running group.

Make running a habit, even if that means getting out for a few minutes per day.

Build mileage gradually.

Don’t dread taking walk breaks

Keep a training log.

Mix in cross training to supplement your running.
Set small, achievable goals.

Remember that you are a runner.
Whenever you’re in doubt, remember these wise words from our Chief Running Officer (and Mayor of Running) Bart Yasso: “I often hear someone say I’m not a real runner. We are all runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner.”
