Beginners Running Tips

By Greg Green (Head Chef at Apple UK)

Greg’s Advice:

• Take things slowly to start, it takes time to build a running/aerobic base.

• Everyone has off days, don’t be too hard on yourself

• Buy a foam roller to ease sore muscles and joints.

• Set small achievable targets and be consistent.

• Running shoes are a must, particularly for older runners.

• Pick somewhere nice to run. Scenery helps massively.

• Don’t overdo it. Build mileage slowly and listen to your body.
