Beginners Running Schedule
This is a brilliant way to get started and its what I did and it really works.Sometimes you'll want o spend more than a week on some of the combinations depending on how fit you are.I'd advise not to jump into this without dedication as skipping a week means that your schedule is all off.Good Luck!

1.Run like you are running on thin ice this stops shin splints and things like knee pain or runners knee
2.Dont over pronate (this means directing all the force in one part of your foot make sure it is even),this happened to me and cause bad knee pain.One way of seeing if you do this is looking inside your running shoes and seeing if the sole in wearing away.
3.Drink lots.When running you are usually sweatignn this means your body is loosing liquid which means you need to keep drinking.
4.Wear appropriate clothing in the heat and when its cold.
5.Get good suitable running shoes
6.Enjoy yourself even when you aren't competing its an amazing thing to do.Dont do it for show and don't be discouraged by others do it because you love it! :)
