5K, 10K, half marathon Training Plan

Running for Beginners – Six-week Plan

Your first steps include:

  1. Own a very good pair of running shoes. Make sure they are appropriate for your feet and the way you run/walk.
  2. Stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day, or more if it’s hot outside or you’re exerting yourself.

Other good ideas:

  1. Run with a buddy, even if you don’t run at the same pace. You’ll keep each other accountable.
  2. Wear clothes that make you feel good. Yes, your workout clothes can help get your workout started, and they can improve your performance.
  3. Add some strength training into your routine.
  4. Don’t forget to warm-up before you exercise with some dynamic stretching to get your heart and muscles warmed up a little. Save the 30-second stretches for after your run/walk. Aim for 5 minutes both before and after a strenuous workout.
