If you’re a new runner, there are loads of reasons you’ll come up with to stay in bed instead of going for a run each morning. However, I suggest keeping the following 15 bits running inspiration in mind, on your fridge, or on your night stand whenever you need a little push to lace up those shoes and go for a run…
1. The first week is always the hardest on every new runner…unless you compare it to the second week so don’t let it deter you!
2. Unlike other workouts, running demands movement and strength from every part of your body.
3. A soft surface is a welcome surface, look for ways to be gentle on your joints.
4. Develop a romance with ice, it’s a sore muscle’s best friend.
5. Always leave time to stretch post-run.
6. Feeling sore and stiff is a sign that your muscles are getting stronger.
7. Three miles covered comfortably is a sign that you’ve “arrived” as a runner.
8. Focus on focus on landing with a soft, light footstrike.
