Last week I ran my first 10k race ever. It was easier than I thought–fun, even. Who would have thought running could be fun?. The feeling was so good that now I’m actually thinking on running a half marathon. Why not, right? I can do it. And so can you.
Do you want to start running?
-Get a training app for your phone. Friends recommended me the C25K (couch to 5k) which worked really well.
-No smart phone? Get a stopwatch and follow this routine –> Running Tips.
-Register to a race. That way you will set a goal and work towards it.
-Create the best playlist ever. If you are lazy, here you have some examples.
-If you are following your routine the way you planned, then reward yourself. If you’re not, reward yourself anyway. This has to be fun.
-Feel happy with each achievement and remember how good you are. When you realize you have done huge progress, cry a little. Haha, every time I reached a distance goal, I cried of happiness.
-Eat and sleep well.
-Look yourself in the mirror and realize how hot you are becoming.
-Run, run, run, like you did when you were 5 years old. Running is fun.
