A Common Mistake Beginner Runners Make

Running too fast when your body at a cellular level isn’t ready can be hard on your body.  While you suffer the feelings of getting out of breath, your body’s intelligence is trying to tell you to slow down.

“Forcing your body to go too FAST,  will have your mind screaming for you to  STOP!”

When you come to a stumbling halt because you have nothing more to give, this can be daunting for the beginner runner trying to learn to run.

Even a runner who has been running for awhile can make this mistake and suffer problems with fatigue followed by the issue of lack of motivation. The result will be running just feels hard.

There are easy things you can do to supply your lungs to muscles with continual oxygen, so you are running comfortably. Let’s go over what That is.

A Common Mistake Beginner Runners Make

Trail running fun.

 

First, you need to recognize if you are running too fast.

A Common Mistake Beginner Runners Make – How does a beginner runner know when they are running too fast?

  • You breathe heavily throughout the run, never seeming to feel good and always gasping and fighting for more breaths!
  • Muscles feel tight and sluggish, and you can’t seem to get into the run.
  • You’re sweating a lot even when you’ve not gone far.
  • You’re rescuing yourself by walking many sessions then you need, to make up for running too fast.
  • You feel as though you might be sick during and/or after your run.
  • You put too many off days in between your runs; you’re too tired and just can’t find the strength or motivation to get out there.
  • After your run, you come home glued to the couch for the rest of the day.

When you get to this point where running just feels so hard, you lose motivation.

It’s time to reinvent new goals for running! Push your ego out of the way and learn to run by simply using the Run/Walk Method.

Signing up for this Free Learn to Run Program will have you running a 5K in 6 weeks!

Slow running does not mean always running slow, your body will know when It’s ready to go!

Tips on Eating When Learning to Run

gilly No Comments

You will feel hungrier because you are active learning to run, please don’t overindulge.

  • During the run/walk or running program you burn between 150 to 200 calories every half hour, this doesn’t mean you can eat like crazy!
  • If you eat a chocolate bar, cheese and crackers and then pick while making dinner, even though it doesn’t seem like you are overindulging – you are! You will not lose weight running.
  • You need to be conscious of what you are feeding yourself. You’re not feeding it to your dog or baby, so don’t feed it to yourself!
  • Eat foods closest to their nature, like an orange instead of just orange juice or fruit juice.
  • Foods that are close to nature are better for you, they increase your metabolism.
  • When you eat foods packaged or processed, your body has a hard time recognizing  them. Hence you store more fat to compensate and your metabolism slows.
  • Think of your stomach the size of your fist and eat fist size portions.
  • Taking weight off will make you feel better and running will take on a whole new direction….
  • Boost you and your families health by serving 3 colors of vegetables or fruits during each meal!

Why choose a ChiRunning Program?

gilly 1 Comments

Why would you choose a

Chi Program?

There are many reasons for choosing a Chi program, the best reason is it positively changes your life!

Running and walking top the list as one of the most convenient and popular sports to keep you fit! Find a good running shoe, throw on a comfortable outfit and you’re out the door to better health!

Going out the door running has never been so easy!

Going out the door is easy if you are holding a good posture aligned throughout your body! But heading out and continually walking or running with poor posture is the number one reason we get uncomfortable and a huge reason for quitting!

Your Walking and Running Posture For ChiRunning

Our walking or running posture changes as we age because we are living tired and sometimes very stressful lives.

You Need To Pay Attention To Your Posture

As your life continues to keep you busy, you need to pay attention to how you are holding your posture. A slightly curved spine, a slump in the shoulders and cave in the chest make it difficult to do anything comfortably! Especially when it comes to your crucial breathing.

Why choose a ChiRunning Program?

Chi Running

Weight not distributed evenly causes injuries to joints and muscles.

Slumping through the shoulders and bending at the waist puts direct pressure on joints at the hip, knees, ankles and feet. If you walk or run with incorrect posture favoring one side of the body, over a period of time troubles come your way and injuries ensue.

ChiRunning starts out with walking and learning the correct postures for walking and running. By being aware and creating a balance in your posture and engaging your body in a harmonious position, you will feel the energy of life flow through you!

Why choose a ChiRunning Program?

See movement, the invisible energy force of the wind.

This Energy is your Chi!

Tapping into your invisible Chi energy makes movements simplistic, effortless and successful. The balance is there and you feel invigorated during and after the run or walk. Chi energy is like the wind, you can’t see it but you will feel it’s subtle force when using it.

Using Chi energy to move your body is all about putting the effort in, (checking in with yourself on movement learned) at the same time using centered energy (gravity) to move you forward.

Danny Dreyer says it best: When two complementary forces are interacting in a relatively good measure, there is a state of balance and centeredness.

Chi running and walking is engaging your body in a unified way, so you can run that 5K or go for that brisk walk feeling good! The parts of your body that are not meant to be used for big body movement are used properly and the workload is spread to the stronger parts of the body. this just means all parts are doing their rightful job.

Learn To Run a 5K in 6 Weeks

The scenario may go like this…Learn To Run 5K in 6 Weeks You start running and feel good and you might even run 5 or 6 days a week. But when it all comes down to it you feel a bit lost on what direction or goals you’re moving towards.

How to train for a 5K race?

It ‘s not that hard, as a matter of fact, if you started training today, you could be running or run/walking your first 5K in 6 weeks.

“Learn to Run a 5K in 6 weeks”  – Here are 5 things to prepare you…

1. Find a race in your area and sign up. Don’t be afraid if you think you’re not ready because lots of 5K races involve walking. Make sure you look for a race that offers both.

2. Talk to your doctor first, so he/she can give you clearance on tackling this running adventure. Lots of people enter an exercise program without telling their doctor and then end up getting sidelined because of problems that could have been avoided. The doctor knows best! I especially recommend you get a check up if you are over 40 and have a history of health issues. Take a 5K program and you and your doctor can customize the program for your health.

3. Check you running shoes and make sure they are not worn. Ask yourself some of these questions. How old are they? Do you use them just for running? Is it time to get a new pair? Running shoes that are old and worn will cause injuries.

4. Make a promise to yourself that you will maintain consistency. Write it down on a piece a paper and have it so you see it every day. X all the days you will run on a calendar that you use frequently. Tell friends and family what you plan to do.

5. Run with a partner or group to keep you motivated. Have another friend join in your journey and enter the race with you. The best part of running is being able to talk to someone about what you’ve accomplished and problems you need to change.

Important Things to note:  
      • You can change your days around to
        suit your schedule. For example if you want to start your training program week on a
        Sunday and end it on a Saturday it is perfectly fine. 
      • On your rest days, pay attention to
        the way your body is feeling. If you are not able to cross-train,
        strength train or walk do not and/or make it up another rest day. Shin Splints are a runners most common injury give your
        body time to heal. Do not forget to stretch before and after!
      • On the walk days make sure your walk is leisurely. 
      • The long runs on Sunday should be
        slow…Map your run before you go out and train running without a watch. -Not
        knowing your pace will make the run more enjoyable knowing that you can
        go slow…
      • The two other running training days of the
        week, mix them up – run hills, a tempo runs, speed drills. Alternate
        weeks, example do not do hills two weeks in a row.
      • The week of the race, train gently and relax. 
      • Go to where the race is and get familiar with it by walking and/ running it. 
      • Figure out what you are going to wear for the 10k . 
      • Go over the 10K race in your head before hand. 
      • Ask yourself pertinent questions
        about the 10K race.  Example: When are going to speed up? How do I want to
        start? Are you going to walk some of the race or run/walk? If you
        trained with a friend are you going to run the whole race with your
        friend?
      •  Have a blast running your 10K and rest the next week with no running!
