Be positive:
Try to picture yourself coming through the finish line at the end of your first race. Imagine how great you will feel when you cross the line.

Go slow:
Often this is as simple as upping your walking pace to power walking. Jogging is just an extension from this, so you can always revert to this stage in your training.

Make a plan:
If you have a plan that fits your lifestyle, it will be easier to achieve your goal. Don’t make it complicated, simple is best when you are beginning.

Feel like a runner:
In other words, take yourself seriously. Every runner started where you are at some point. The moment you come back from your first decent training run, you’ll already be a runner. Remember, you will get faster and will be able to run further than you have done before. The sky’s the limit!
