Advice given to a novice runner (me)
You should be able to talk when running, that’s your correct pace
Being able to talk while running is a load of crap, I never can and I have run 17 marathons
You need to train properly, stick to your routine during the week, do core strengthening exercises
I wake up Sundays and run; I didn’t do any training and finished in xyz time
Why do you need shot blocks for such a small distance?
Eat shot blocks in the middle of your run
Wear a jacket, it might be cold
Don’t wear a jacket, it gets hot
Sprint frequently and get your heart rate going
Run at a steady pace; distance is more important than time
Run the full marathon
Don’t run the full marathon this year, be smart and take it slow…………What is the purpose of this post?
As in all things in life, I have realized that at the end of the day, you just do what feels right for you. So to all new runners out there, just like me, keep going, do whatever suits you, and just have fun !!!
