Running shoes, running form, half marathon techniques or a beginner running program, let’s start running today

Running tips are great. No, seriously it’s not just because I’m writing this article that I think that; simple tips at beginner level can be transformative so listen up.

From walk breaks to a solid running technique there are loads of things you can do. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. In fact, it’s so hard to get running at times it causes many to stop. So how do we face the mist and guide ourselves through hardship?

Firstly, we read.

Secondly, we realise that in reality, it’s one of the easiest things you can do. You don’t have to run a hard running routine to meet your weekly running schedule, you just have to be running.


Let’s have a look at some benefits first.

As one of the most effective ways to build cardiovascular endurance, running outdoors can give a lot of wider benefits too. Think about nature, headspace, stress relief, anxiety relief and all of the other mood-based boosts you’re almost guaranteed to get.

It’s inexpensive, incredibly accessible, and can be undergone whether you’re 8 or 80 years old (careful of the old heart with the obvious, though)

Verywell describes some benefits – ”Running is a sport that can bring families together. For example, some families participate in charity fun runs or jog together to spend quality time enhancing healthy values. Kids participating in running programs may learn how to overcome obstacles and persevere.”

Not my type

New runners, a running coach, a beginner runner and more… there are plenty of types of runners so it’s no surprise that types of running exist too.

You’ve got treadmill running (great for a half marathon training mix up), road running (which is brilliant for a range of stuff but can be bad on the knees), racing (which of course adds that competition to your regular running habit), track running (a new running routine would be great for this, beginner runners may find it good to start on a track) and trail running (a good way to develop proper running form in the outside world).

Start her up!

Beginner running tips for beginners wouldn’t be good if you didn’t receive some advice. So, here it is. Wear proper shoes and wear proper gear, stay safe, use the walk-run method (walk break technique), use proper form, practice posture, make sure you can manage it, monitor your foot strike, and so forth.


There are a lot of things to consider but none of its hard or complex, just make the right moves and start your running career today.


What is delayed onset muscle soreness?

This is when your muscle soreness doesn’t occur straight away either through bad form or other inflictions.
