Get the best shoes

Here, we are talking about the best shoes. But the best shoes are those that suit your feet while long and short both runs. Before getting into a long marathon, you have to boost your confidence up. A perfect pair of shoes is the most sensible thing that can boost your confidence. If you run for a long time, then uncomfortable shows can cause some serious problems for you, like running injury.

Don’t do overtraining

This tip is a tricky one because training is the most important thing that any athlete, including a runner, has to do. But here, overtraining can be dangerous for the health of a runner. Your body is capable of doing a certain amount of exercise and training. But when you try to push it hard and try to do some extra training to stand first in the race, you can face a serious injury. This injury can be in the form of a muscle cramp or something else. So, you have to increase your ability but not by overtraining. You have to increase your training and exercise by a passage of time but patiently and slowly.


Warm-ups are very important for any athlete, especially for runners. Before starting running, give your muscles a good and steady warm-up so that you can have a better running experience. The best rule of warming up says that you should warm up at least for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to start with some slow exercises but then increase your speed with time. Just make sure that your heartbeat rate and breathing are faster than usual so that the blood gets through the muscles to make them work. Warm-up will allow you to run more and more without any cramp, pull, or serious injury.

Increase your flexibility

Some injuries happen due to less flexibility of the body and muscles of a runner. Flexibility helps a runner to run as he wants. But some runners don’t take it seriously at all. So, take it seriously!

How to become flexible?

After knowing the importance of flexibility for a runner, a runner must want to become as flexible as he should. So, yoga is the best way to become flexible. You have to get up early in the morning. And start yoga before eating and before any other workout or exercise.

Run in the right way

So, be careful in a race to stand first.
