    Aye who else runs?

    Let鈥檚 keep track of our progress and motivate each other here

    I just started taking running seriously this year. Hoping to run a marathon when things open up again. How often do you run? What are your goals?

    Run just for exercise, either on my treadmill or round the neighborhood

    No goals, but i respect those that try to push it to be something greater. S*** is hard, especially in the beginning.

    okay yeah

    Nah not daily, more like everyother day.

    Just an hour outside or inside. Sometimes longer sometimes slightly shorter depending on day/mood.

    I just do it for general health reasons tho. I used to do track stuff years ago, but thats a long time ago now lol.

    been trying to start running on the treadmill more (along with my usual walking) but im still pretty bad at it now. only run for like 10 minutes a few times a week, and sometimes doing shorter intervals but sprinting

    anyone have tips on how to start increasing my runs, maybe fixing my form? my feet/ankle area always starts to hurt and that's why i can't do it every day. don't think its my shoes causing it. been trying to take shorter strides and land less on the balls of my feet to avoid stepping so hard

    If youre really new then it really is just a buildup.

    Dont try to overdo it & dont trip about not lasting 40mins+ in one continuous session right off the bat.

    Doesnt hurt to take a few minutes break between running too in the beginning.

    Also dont start out full sprinting. Start with a walk, then light jog for a bit then the run.

    You gotta build up the resistance & get your muscles used to it. Then over time you will notice you'll be able to do a lil more n more over time, as long as you keep at it regularly.

    It can take a month to a few months, think of it like lifting weights. Start out with the bar n maybe some tens, then slowly build up.

    Honestly bro, only way to get rid of the pain in the area is to work them more, get through and push through it. Also buy some shoes with some foam and tie those mothafuckas tight

    Running is honestly 90% mental and breathing technique. Stand up straight and don鈥檛 slouch at all, head up and forward, lift ya knees up, push your hips out and go

    Breath through your nose and out through your mouth. Move your arms and in my experience taking longer strides is better, because there鈥檚 less hard impact on your feet, I have long legs tho.

    1. Get an Apple Watch
    2. Download Nike Run Club app
    3. Play the guided runs on 鈥淕etting Started鈥 series. The first one is My First Run.

    This is akin to having a coach. It鈥檚 very difficult to train yourself. I only learned how to really run this way. I enjoy running instead of dreading it now because I鈥檝e learnt how to actually run.

  • Tryna get back into it. I live beside a park that's great for running.
