New to Running? These 2 Fitness Programs Are for You!

March 26, 2014 4:02 pm

Running for exercise always looks so enjoyable in the movies—sprinting through your local park, the wind through your hair, maybe a dog by your side. In real life, however, even just finding the motivation to get onto the treadmill can be difficult. Here are two simple programs that will help you start a running routine.

Running for Beginners
This site offers a variety of different workout plans for runners of all levels, from those who want to run a simple 5K to more advanced runners who need help with marathon training. The Couch to 5K program is especially helpful, because it allows you to start from scratch – i.e. your couch – and it guides you every step of the way until you’re ready to run a full 5K.

How to Start Running
Real Simple magazine’s How to Start Running guide focuses on helping beginning runners find the motivation to want to run. Sticking with any workout plan is all about enjoyment, and this low-key plan helps you to avoid injury, stretch properly, and slowly build up your distances so that you don’t get burnt out on running. This guide also offers premade playlists that you can listen to while running on the street or on the treadmill.
