How to beat your exercising excuses.

  1. Make sure you warm up well. Begin your warm by walking for 2 minutes and then start jogging. Run easily for about 5 minutes. Taking walking breaks when you need them.
  2. Keep your pace slow. Do not run too quickly as this will make the session hard.
  3. Run somewhere new so you do not get bored of your running route.
  4. Try running some of the free 5K time trial runs in the local parks. These are great fun and provide a good monitor as to how your training is working out.
  5. Have a go at a new exercise class. Do a workout that you have not done before. This will keep you motivated and help supplement your training.
  6. Start to run using a heart rate monitor. This will provide a good indicator to how hard you are training and your progression.
