The A - Z of running
The seven most important things you should bear in mind for running
Choose your type of running training
Before you enter the starting blocks, consider exactly what you want to achieve with your running. Is it about endurance training or primarily about burning fat to lose weight? Do you want to train for a marathon with interval running training or do you enjoy jogging to clear your head? Depending on the goal you set, your running training will look different as regards duration, frequency and intensity. Decide what your motivation is and set yourself realistic goals.

Learning to run correctly: the technique
Running training according to the plan
Once today and maybe tomorrow ... you will never achieve your goal that way. Work out a realistic plan before the first running training session. Overstraining at the beginning, in particular, quickly leads to frustation and, at worst, to injuries. A good training plan is based on your running fitness when you begin, and then slowly increases the demands made on your performance. You can find plans for various types of running training on the internet, but planning and monitoring by a personal trainer is more individual.
