Keep at it
Starting to run is an investment that will not pay off in just a few days or weeks. It takes perseverance and patience. It can take several weeks until running starts to become easier and your legs start to “get it”. You’re more likely to stick with it if you do it with others, such as with a Yakult Start to Run program at an athletics club near you. Go check out a running event, as well, to get inspired. And then pay attention not only to the leading group, but instead focus specifically on the runners at the back of the field. If they can do it, you should be able to as well, right?
