Jogging is one of the best exercises you can engage in. Runners not only see immediate results in their outward appearance, but also feel a physical change.
So why are so many people reluctant to jog as a form of exercise? It’s mainly because it takes time and effort to get to a level where you’re actually jogging. Most people can’t start a treadmill workout at 5.0 MPR, and don’t want to work up to a fast pace. As a result, they give up, and that’s a shame. Getting to the point in your routine where you’re jogging at high speed requires patience, and your efforts are well worth it in the end. To get excited about jogging, try one of the recommendations below.
Set a goal. When you aim for a goal, you are more likely to finish what you started. To ensure you continue to build the stamina you need, keep your goal realistic and achievable.
This is a realistic goal: walk for five minutes and jog for two minutes until you complete a 30-minute workout.
Here’s an unrealistic goal: run three non-stop miles in my first week of exercise.
Go at your pace: You don’t have to run every day. In fact, it’s always a good idea to give your joints time to rest. When you’re a beginning runner, it’s a good idea to jog (or do a jog/walk combination) three times a week for 20 minutes.
If you’ve been sedentary for a while, it will take time for you to get used to exercise. He just remembers that when you feel like putting your hands up in the air, he keeps walking. You will be proud of yourself for putting in the effort.
