Here is part 6 of 100 tips for runners. We have some great tips again for you this week, lets got straight in.

1. Don’t be ashamed of walking.

If you are new to running or to getting some exercise for that matter, then you may have

to start with walking, to properly condition your body for running. Keep in mind that lots

of people are going through this route as well. Aside from that, some people even do

not run, but simply walk in order to get in shape.

2. Variety is the spice of life.

Going through the same route each and every day of your training can become boring.

Thus, it is a good idea to vary it. Visit other places, which you can reach through running

or walking, so that you can make it more interesting and less boring. Aside from that, it

can also make your body tougher for having to adjust to a new kind of terrain.

3. Try to improve your speed from time to time.

Training for speed can also help you improve your leg muscles. Thus, speeding up

towards a certain light post and running at a normal speed to the next can already

provide you with more benefits. Do this on a regular basis, so that you can also vary

your training.

4. Build your endurance.

Running is one of the best ways to build your endurance. However, there are also other

activities you can do, which can improve your stamina, aside from running. Some of

which would be brisk walking towards the grocery store, using the stairs in climbing up

to your office, and more. By doing all these things, you will be able to build your

endurance more, and experience the effects when you run.

5. Run harder in the later part of your runs.

Running harder in the later part of your runs can actually provide you with a lot of

beneficial effects. For one, it can improve your stamina. Aside from that, it can also

improve your ability to sprint. Thus, do this technique from time to time, so that you can

experience the desirable results from it soon.

6. How to go through rough spots.

When you have to go through rough terrain while you are running, you may find it a bit

difficult, especially if its unfamiliar to you. To do it more effectively, you should focus

more on your feet every time it touches the ground. Aside from that, you should also

become more conscious on the sounds of your breath. By doing this, you won’t be able

to notice the toughness of the route, and be able to go through it with ease.

7. Getting rid of side cramps.

One of the best ways to get rid of side cramps is to do abdominal breathing, when you

are running. Aside from gaining relief from side cramps, it can also develop your lungs

more, since it is the right way to breathe. Moreover, abdominal breathing also helps

your body absorb more oxygen, which can improve your overall well being.

8. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

There may be times when you are not able to hit your goals on time. When this

happens, you should not be too hard on yourself and give up on it. You should let it go,

and focus on the next goal that you want to target. You should not get discouraged of

your failures, since they can be the reasons that you would have more drive in hitting

your goals.

9. Don’t forget to get some rest.

Resting is actually as important as the other elements in working out or in running. This

is because when you are resting, you are actually providing your body a chance to

repair its worn out tissues. Thus, it is best that you make it a part of your training plan,

so that you can maximize your benefits from it.
