Beginner’s running tips article

Since I now have been running for a little more than one and a half year, and began from nothing, I thought it might be helpful for some out there to get a piece of my experiences as a beginner. So now I have written an article about what I think made a difference for me in my running. Hope you like it!

Beginner’s running tips

A sign of improvement

Don’t got much to add today, except that I got a good indication of improvement at my 30 min easy run.

All winter I’ve been running easy runs at HR around 130 to 140. My pace then have varied between 5:50-6:30. I never thought that would change. Yesterday I ran at 133, I think it was, and the average pace was 5:30. That was also a sign of progress, but I didn’t give much thought then. Today I had an average heart rate of 138 and that gave an average pace of 5:08!! For me that is quite a spectacular change compared to back only 2 weeks! (Have you also noticed that my cadence is a little higher)

If it’s not something special it at least gives me confidence about the coming season – and I sure can use that as I’m trying to better my 10k time with more than 2:47 min (from 39:47 to sub 37) 😉
