Tips for Beginner Runners

  • Always start your training with active warm-up. The goal is to increase your heart rate and warm up your muscles. This will help prevent injuries and make your training more efficient.
  • After the active warm-up, start with very light jogging or walking for 5-10 mins.
  • Pace yourself. Better to start slow and finish strong. This will help you to pace better during the race and perform better.
  • Strength and endurance training will help you achieve a longer, injury-free running career.
  • Legs circuit training 1-2x a week (2-4 sets)
  • Create a strong foundation during the first 3-4 months through only endurance and strength training (legs circuit). Once you are stronger, you can start to add tempo / interval runs.
  • Make sure you have at least 1 day rest – recovery between training days.
  • Injuries: Should any part of your leg (knee, calf, hip, Achilles) feel sensitive or painful, stop all activity and rest. Initially, it is difficult to determine the cause, but it could be a sign that you did something wrong (improper warm up, lack of stretching, too high intensity, lack of recovery etc.) or you need to change something (running shoes, running style etc). Sometimes the pain will disappear after a few days of rest and some extra stretching and massage. If the pain continues for a few weeks, it’s better to see a specialist to solve the problem.
  • Don’t race if you're injured because there is a high chance of developing a more serious injury
