How Can I Grow Taller? Some Good Exercise Can Help
Posted by Jessymeshak on January 6th, 2020
In the spirit of listening to your body - try Metabolic Stretching Review this. Walk for 30 minutes. If you have to give up after 5 minutes, or stop to regain your breath twice, don't try running yet. Instead, concentrate on going out for a walk every day, until you can walk for 30 minutes continuously without feeling awful.
If the first test was a breeze, the next stage is to put some running shoes on and try running / walking. Warm up for 5 minutes by walking at a brisk pace, then try to jog for 1 minute followed by walking for 2 minutes. Then repeat running walking until you've used up a further 20 minutes. Finally walk for the final 5 minutes to 'warm down'.
As you get fitter and fitter, which really happens faster than you realise, you can change the ratio of running to walking, always listening to your body, until you can run without stopping for the middle 20 minutes of your routine. Then you'll have a fantastic grounding for running your first half marathon.
They say 'Don't run before you can walk' - and they are right. Start your running career gently and you'll avoid all the beginner injuries which can have such a demotivating effect on so many new runners. And learning to listen to your body, and not push it too hard will be invaluable in your training for your first races, and beyond.
