Many who get into running, opt out of it due to sheer hatred for the sport. Maybe this is because of the painful blisters or the agonizing shins or the dangerous wobble in the bosoms. There are however some basic tips and tricks to help you make the transition smoother from a non-runner to a runner. So if you’re just starting out on a new journey pounding the pavement or the treadmill belt, then here are things you should know about running.

Practice Practice Practice!

Even when it comes to running, the more you do it, the easier it becomes.To strengthen your muscles, acclimatize your heart and lungs, and increase your endurance, you need to run at least three times a week. Start off with a doable distance like a 2-3 Km run. Once that distance feels good enough, gradually increase your mileage. The key is to move at a comfortable pace for a reasonable amount of time. Don’t go overboard when you are starting off as you could end up with an injury and hate the sport even more.
