It is never too late to start running. Many take up this sport in their 50s and beyond. To start, you only need a good pair of running shoes and a desire.
Running is a very effective way to build cardiovascular endurance and increase mental toughness. It is an excellent stress reliever and will improve your health overall.
Keep your posture upright, head lifted, back should feel tall, and shoulders level. Keep your pelvis neutral and your hands relaxed. Let your arms swing from the shoulder joint.
As runners get tired, they tend to lean forward or back at their waist. Their shoulders may start to hunch over, which restricts breathing. Try to avoid this. Focus your eye about 10 - 20 feet ahead of you.
Try to land on the middle of your foot, then roll through to the front of your toes.
Eating anything you want may lead to weight gain after a few months of regular running. Instead, focus on a healthy balanced diet.
To keep up your motivation:
Your running should include more than just running.
Mix other activities like cycling, swimming, skating, aerobic exercises or strength training to help avoid getting burned out.
