Starting A Running Program When Overweight Level 7

Welcome to the end of the program, it took months but you finally arrived. How do you feel? You have bragging rights now and go tell everyone what you have accomplished. Here are some tips to keep you going:

1.   Set a goal.  For example, run a 5 kilometer race.  Find one in your area
2.   Change your running shoes every 6 months this will help keep you injury free
3.   Always warm up with a walk or slow jog and always stretch after your cool-down
4.   Take a yoga or stretching class to keep you flexible

My next series will be on how to turn a runner into a racer. Thanks for coming to the end of this program.
