Running

I enjoy running and I am trying to train for endurance running at 45 years of age. I can run 2 miles within 20 min. But I am interested in long distance and endurance running to treat depression and aide in maximum weight loss results. Any advice encouragement on how to get started?

Hi there. I began running seriously at 39. The key is to start slow and go short distances. Designate one day of your week as a “long run” day and slightly increase your distance each week. If you get winded too easily, slow down— even try run/walk.

And STRETCH!!! Before and after. It’s so important.

Good luck!
