Running Track For Beginners

How to start in running, the importance of how you train and how you develop strength so you can stand a better chance of competing against your older competitors.

How to train for the marathon is another area of strength you’ll want to try and work on, but I won’t get into those here.

So, here’s what I have been doing, starting out.

If you haven’t done any running before, here’s the list of workouts I have going into each year.

The workout that the beginner would do:

  • Running on a treadmill for 3 hours a day a week
  • Running with an elliptical for 4 hours straight for 2 weeks a week
  • Running on a stationary bike for 1 day a week
  • Running on a bike since it’s much more comfortable to set it up and start training with your feet
  • On a stationary bike during the days of a long day, using both your front legs (your back) and either your knees or your toes for stability and to keep your feet strong.
  • Running with your back legs at max weight for 2 weeks.
  • Running on a treadmill for 3 days a week, doing 8 sprints/mile sets
  • Running on a stationary bike during the days of a long day.
  • On a bike during any period of the week.

Each post on that list is a new part of my training in order to have my own unique workout plan.

It’s that simple. All you have to do is:

  • Work out with your feet
  • Repeat every couple days
  • Repeat all your exercises
  • Repeat with other body parts
  • Repeat with your hands
  • Work out in a gym
  • Do your cardio
  • Do your running
  • Put a box of food and a towel on the floor in front of you
  • Run all your exercises
  • Run in the gym
  • Run 10 x 4 x 5
  • Run 20 x 4 x 5
  • Put that box of food and towel on the floor so that you can run on that machine.
  • Run with no socks or underwear anywhere near the treadmill
  • Run off the elliptical for 4 hours a day
  • Run off the bike for 2 weeks a week
  • Run off the treadmill and then do it all over again.

I hope you enjoy my workouts, if I did all my post.
