What plan should I follow? I want to run, but I'm so out of shape. Any suggestions?
Well im a runner first thing about running is leg and core try lunges squats and small abs workout do 2to 5min workout for beginers than move your way to more harder workout.
I've been running for a couple of months now.
Some things I've learned...
1. Run in intervals. Start out small. Run for 5 mins straight, walk briskly for 2, run for another 5...
2. Try and run with a friend. My best friend & I would make a weekly running date. We would push each other to run harder. We also keep each other accountable.
3. Eat right. What you eat affects your stamina & how much energy you have to run. (For me this is the hardest).
The more you run, the better you get. Trust me. When I first started, I couldn't run more than 7 mins; now I run 30 mins minimum.
Thanks everyone for the replies, I'll start doing what you ask suggest. It seems very reasonable!
How long did this improvement take you? I've been running for over 3 months..and I still can't run for 11+ minutes non-stop! =(
It depends on how ur body handle the heat if u sweat slot ur body will cool down but is also depend on the speed u going too.the stronger u core is the faster and longer u can run. Everybody not the same but if u want to knw a little secrete about running only select ppl knw.moving ur arm and legs at the same rate make u last longer dont be so tense relax to do this ur arm are slightly bent ur move them from top of hip to chest alternate arms and legs make sure ur left leg move the same time as ur right arm after u learn this basic tip u see ur improvment by 5min if practice correctly
If ur not able to maintain a constant running speed for 5-10min you should start of by walking for 2min and jogging for 30 sec and keep repeatimg the same thing over and over until you had finished almost an hour I started like that and now I can run a complete marathon without resting and im still 14 I can finish it in 3hrs and a couple of extra minutes also I came in 42nd place in the 5k race that had 6,800 competitors and that was my first race in my life
Are you continuing to run presently.
