How to Start Jogging - Beginner Running Tips
A lot of people ask me "How do i start jogging?" and my usual quirky reply is simple "Get up and move!". But really there are some thing you have to pay attention when you are starting out on a running routine!
When you have any kind of medical problem go visit a doctor before you start jogging. Make sure that you don't risk your health when exercising!
Find shoes that fit your needs. Good shoes should provide adequate support and be adjusted to the underground you are running on most. If you do not know what kind of running shoe to choose, visit a sport outfitter and get advice from the sales person there.
Start by walking for a couple of minutes and stretch yourself. This can be your warm up routine and will decrease the chances of muscle injuries.
Take it slow and steady! You do not want to burn out after three days of training . At first run as far as you can and get your body accustomed to the training. You can increase the intensity later. But do your jogging routine at least every other day. This way you'll built the habit.Â Â If you feel tired, rather so a shorter jogging session than taking a day off.
Do not forget to do a cool down at the end of your running exercise. To cool down after an intensive exercise is almost as important as to warm up before you start. Stretch yourself again and keep on walking for a couple of minutes. Cooling down will decrease injuries as well as keep you from getting sore muscles.
