i seriously dont know how to run

Recommended Posts

Hello all! Today was day 1 for me. I cant believe I actually did the entire 30 minutes. My issue is this, when its time to run, i did more of a light jog. Im not sure if i am extending my legs correctly. Most of my life i was pretty slim, but i had a car accident a few years ago ( struck by a vehicle while walking ) and i now fear putting stress on my body

More stress. My bmi is high but i am determined to lose this weight! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

At this point, don't worry if you're running/jogging properly or not.  Listen to your body - does anything hurt when you start jogging?  If not, then you're doing it fine.  Are you moving forward when jogging (even if only a little?) Then you're doing it right.


As you progress, you will find your natural stride and speed.  What worked for me was jogging in place for a bit, then just putting one foot in front of the other once I had a good rhythm going.


Keep at it - you can do it!
