1. Break your run down into sections.
Your running session should always be broken down into sections. Whenever you make the decision to start running remember that is very important to mark down how far you plan on running and how many breaks you are taking so that you can observe your progress and also not push yourself too much during any point in your workout. For instance, at first you may want to set a goal like 2 blocks for every rest and slowly increasing the distance weekly. The most important thing is to not overdo it, you want to slowly ease into harder and more challenging stages in your running especially if you are new.
2. Add an active hobby to your schedule.
Adding any fun activity onto your existing running schedule such as a sport can greatly increase your ability to run faster and longer. There are many enjoyable ways to increase your heart rate and improve your cardiovascular health at the same time without as much difficulty. Activities such as hockey, soccer, basketball, tennis, or even frisbee can give your fitness a huge boost without you even noticing as they are all fun activities you can once a week and still gain huge benefits from in the long run (no pun intended)
and last but not least…
3. Take breaks.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but many people overexert themselves during their workout and end up hurting both their bodies and their progress. Breaks are also a great time to regroup not only your strength but your thoughts as well, maybe you want to make a last minute change to your workout, run a little further, or maybe divide your run into a few shorter distances, now would be a great time.
Remember to always keep a record of your progress and continue to push yourself a little more each day and you will be able to reach your goal in no time. If you enjoyed this article make sure you visit http://jbassembly.com/fitness-news/ for more daily updates.
