MAKE A PLAN
Many new runners experience shin splints, cramping quads, or sore hips from going too fast or doing too much too soon; ease into your new activity.
GET LOTS OF REST
Rest allows your body a chance to rebuild and recover. If you don’t allow yourself rest time you might feel sore, tired, or sluggish. When you’re first starting out, it’s a good idea to have at least 1 rest day in between each run. Use this day for weightlifting or your other favorite exercises!
