Everything I want new runners to know

June 26, 2020

This week is brought to you by I've heard way too many people gatekeeping new runners and I have feelings about that

It's true. There are so many people who are new to running or giving it a crack again with gyms being limited or not quite open yet and I'm pretty annoyed with the level of gatekeeping or scaremongering that is out there. More runners is awesome! I'm so excited to see everyone out there trying something new or getting back to something that they used to love. 

Everything I want new runners to know (and everything people wished they'd known before they started)

In this episode I'm talking:

  • Injury prevention
  • Strength training
  • What shoes to buy?
  • Bodytype BS
  • Is your technique worse if you run slow?
  • How to slow down.
  • Walking is your friend
  • Managing fatigue when you start
  • How to breathe
  • And most importantly, yes it does get easier.
