As you know, I haven’t been a runner for many years. I started running FOR REAL last year, with the Boost Girls Program where I had the opportunity to challenge myself and complete several races during a year.
I began running from 5K or 8K at the beginning of 2016. When I started I didn’t have the mindset or the resistance to complete a whole race. I felt the same kind of pains or discomfort that any person who starts by their own feels, it could be neck or back pain, sore legs, “dolor de yegua” and many other. I was really tense and it was because I didn’t had the proper technique, I didn’t sorrounded myself with people who could challenge me or pushed me further.
I’ve heard many people that say they don’t like to run. Maybe it’s because they haven’t find someone or a place that could teach them how to do it properly, based on your specific conditions.
Do you think you could run from 5K to 42K in a year? I did!
Of course, there was a lot behind: proper nutrition, rest, organization… All the growth and improvement of my technique was thanks to adidas who led me in the process. Maybe running for 4 hours straight isn’t an attractive goal for you but… do you see yourself completing your first 10K? Or maybe a 5K will actually be a HUGE challenge if you’re not a sporty person.
The adidas RUNBASE is the perfect place to start. They’ll help you with any doubt and guide you to improve in every step.
