100 Beginner Running Tips

The Complete Running Blog Network has compiled a list of helpful tips for beginner and even veteran runners.  The list includes helpful pieces of advice of different aspects of running including: Apparel , Manners, Motivation , Nutrition, Prevention, Safety, Racing Tips, Shoes, Training and Weather Tips.

Some of my personal favorites include:

  • Wear spandex shorts under your regular running shorts so you don’t chafe “down there.”
  • Cotton socks will only lead to blisters; invest in socks designed for running.
  • Always try to balance running with the people you love by making a schedule that involves and is considerate of everyone.
  • Find a committed running partner. It is much harder to skip a run when you have someone else depending on you.
  • Hydrate. Make it a habit to drink water throughout the day. 
  • To aid recovery the most crucial time to eat and drink is in the hour immediately after you run.
  • Use Vaseline or BodyGlide wherever things rub. They will help prevent blisters and chafing (guys don’t forget the nipples). 
  • Don’t stretch before a run. Warm up by walking briskly or jogging slowly for several minutes.
Racing Tips
  • Race day is not the day to try new shoes, eat new foods, or wear brand new clothing.
  • Do not try a marathon as your first race.
Shoe Tips
  • Try shoes on in the afternoon when your feet are bigger.
  • Doubleknot your shoe laces so they will not come undone when you run.
Training Tips
  • If you are breathing too hard slow down or walk a bit until you feel comfortable again.
  • There’s no shame in walking.
