Congratulations to all those who have started on this journey of Learning to run. Well done. You have completed the tasks of week 1 only 7 more to go!
Couple of reminders:
- Some soreness in the legs is expected and will subside the next day and continues to lessen as time progresses – if that does not happen then I would suggest you REST or if the pain is associated with swelling etc then do seek some medical advice.
- In week 2 make your walk a bit purposeful and brisk. Keep it a bit faster than a stroll in the park. It might also be good if you keep mobile phones away and just enjoy the 30 odd minutes focusing on the activity of walk/run.
- Avoid running down the slopes for now.
- If you have not read the Tips, please do so – there are some pointers to stretching and how to tie shoe laces
Best wishes for the weeks ahead
