Now that the weather is improving it’s a great time to start thinking about getting fit and active. Running is a great way to improve fitness and get healthier. If you haven’t done much running before here’s a few tips on how to start running to turn you from a walker to a runner.

–          Always start with a 5 minute walk to warm up

–          On the first day jog for 1-2 minutes, walk 3-4 minutes and repeat 3-4 times

–          Gradually increase the amount of running and decrease the amount of walking

–          You may feel a little breathless but should always be able to carry out a conversation while running
