A Beginner’s Guide to Running Your First 5K

Many people have asked me: How to run 5K? or How to start running? Let us admit it. Lying down on the couch, munching on cheesy Doritos, and flicking through the channels all day can be incredibly boring at times. Not to mention the fact that it is bad for your health as well. So, you want to get off your couch, put on your shoes, and go for a run. The problem, however, is that many of us simply do not know how to get started.

In my blog The best running shoes for women I introduced different running shoes for different conditions, given here is a beginner’s running guide that can help you get into running shape and even complete your first 5K run successfully.

OK, now, couch to 5k? The first thing you need to know about the journey from your couch to 5K is that it is entirely possible, no matter how out of shape you are. If you are in reasonably good shape, you can get into running shape fairly quickly and if you are completely out of shape, it will take you longer. But the goal itself is entirely attainable. So, you have to stay positive and believe that you can do it. It is the first step towards becoming a runner.
