The first step is to ensure that you have quality, well-fitting footwear. An ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can truly hamper your stride and also poses the risk for injury. There is a classic run walk strategy that can ramp up your running abilities in short order. Identify a 5k race that will be held in your area approximately 8 weeks from now. Register for this race and make that your goal. Begin training for your 5k race by committing thirty minutes each day to running and stretching. Spend five minutes stretching your calf muscles and lower body muscles. Begin with a power walk for five minutes. Set the timer on your activity tracker to ring at two minute intervals. Walk fast for two minutes and enter a slow jog for two minutes. Repeat this rotation for thirty minutes five times a week for two weeks. At the onset of week three, set your activity tracker timer for two minute brisk walks followed by three minute slow jogs. Continue this five times a week for two weeks. For the next four weeks, increase the running time by one minute each week. By week eight you’ll be more than ready for your first 5K race.


Don’t sabotage your new found running goals with poor eating choices. The greatest gift you can give your body is the elimination of fast foods and sugary sodas. Our metabolisms simply are not designed to process copious amounts of added sugars and sodium. Replace these choices with lean proteins and fresh vegetables. In lieu of sodas, enjoy a cool glass of water flavored with a slice of lemon or lime.
