Getting Started Running

Running Is a Great Way to Stay ActiveThanks to That’s Fit for highlighting this great list of the top 10 questions beginning runners ask (along with the answers, of course!) over at Complete Running Network:

  1. How long should my first runs be?
  2. What should I do if I can’t run non-stop for 15 minutes?
  3. How often should I run?
  4. How far should my runs be?
  5. I’m afraid I won’t be able to stick with the plan – how do I stay motivated?
  6. How do I know if I’m running correctly?
  7. Should I stretch?
  8. Should I change how I eat now that I’m running?
  9. I am taking up running to lose weight – how much can I expect to lose?

Other awesome resources from Complete Running Network include a Three Part How to Run Series, 100 Beginner Running Tips, and a Learn to Run Article Archive.

About a year ago, I decided I was going to start running. Long story short, I did not start running. But now with this information, and my barely used $300 worth of running gear, I’m ready to roll. What about you?
