So the first tip was about getting started and running your first mile or 2, and it was hard. Running is hard! But it gets easier…and then it is hard again.
To help it get easier you need to relax.
You will need to remind yourself throughout your run to relax. Go through the list in your head from top to bottom.
Running is about relieving stress and getting strong. There is no room for negative thoughts. I have a friend that told his wife she needed to say YAY! when she reached the top of every hill. Her “YAYs” became very small “yays” but they were “yays” none the less.
Remember…every run is different. There will be good runs and there will be crappy runs, but you will always be glad you ran when you get home. You rock!
Be strong and keep running!
