How To LOVE Running!

For me it was about getting out of my head. Music is a nessesity. It’s also my me time. The only time I have quiet moments with God and nature. Figure out your breathing, set small goals to push yourself each time just a little harder, and stay out of your head.

I run like crazy at the end just because I know I can push harder. Learning to run is like starting kindergarten. If you begin with the fundamentals, you’ll set yourself up for years of success. It all begins with practicing patience, and progressing slowly and. It’s time to modify your training frequency, progression rate, sleep, nutrition, stress, travel, lack of downtime, the elements and more.

Learning to run by monitoring your pace is like being in love with a toxic person. With every stride comes judgment that you’re not fast enough. While you’re learning to love running, you should too — give up the notion that you need to feel winded at the end of every workout, and just enjoy the feeling of running this way. 3. Take short, quick strides.

Trying to remember 10 different form tips while you run is a sure way to suck the fun out of it. Run at a pace that doesn’t leave you gasping for breath in a block or two, and if it feels slow, that’s fine! The trick is to slowly build up your endurance. 3. Make your goals attainable.

If you decide to pick up running and your goal is to finish a marathon, you’re probably going to get discouraged pretty quickly. Once you’re comfortable with how running feels, try following a plan designed to make you a faster, better runner, like this beginner’s 5K training plan. Go. The whole thing feels like a failed effort. But a few hours after my sorry performance, Molly Huddle, a Rhode Island runner and 10,000-meter American record holder, tells me even she has painful.

Run with a friend, listen to music or a podcast, or occupy your mind by focusing on your breathing and form with a mantra (like, “inhale, exhale” — it’s rhythmic and enormously distracting). Try different running techniques, such as changing speed, running up and down hills, long runs, tempo running, cross country running, etc. Give barefoot running a go and see if you enjoy the change. Make sure to find soft areas to run on. 3. One way to learn to like a tedious, fatigue-inducing exercise like running is to learn how to take your mind off of it while you’re doing it.

Start small and work your way up. Begin with 1-2 mile runs every other day, and after doing this for a month or so, increase the mileage to 3-4 miles.

Running is absolutely great for getting your heart pumping and infusing your body with endorphins, the feel-good natural chemicals.

  • I needed this so badly! Thank you for the motivation! Jessica, you’re such an inspiration to me in so many areas, I appreciate your videos more than I could ever express! Thank you!

  • I just adore you Jessica, you’re so positive and real. These are great tips not only for running, but for fitness in general! Everyone’s journey is their own, and it’s so nice to hear that reinforced. Thanks for always being such a light in the world.

  • My first mile was 15 minutes and I just now got to 11 minutes and I’ve been running for over a month. And I push myself to the point where I almost faint. LOL don’t get discouraged cause at least you’re not me xxx
    I can’t believe that’s where you started!

  • “it can be both” in regards to running and drinking wine LOL!! This is why you’re my absolute favorite YT’er! You’re so real and down to earth. Love ya <3

  • i have come back to watch this video MULTIPLE times since you’ve posted it. it really has motivated me so much, and my runs have improved so much with your tips! i’m so grateful for this video, it has changed the game for me. THANK YOU. ��

  • I’ve started running recently and I signed up for a 10k next month with my mom! I love being in the weight room, but being balanced in the cardio department is also important! Loved the video ❤️��

  • I love the couch to 5k app. It helped me get started combining walking and running back and forth and every so many days to would run a little longer and walk shorter but it helped build my stamina up. By the end of the 8 or 9 weeks you should be able to do the 3 miles.

  • Why am I watching this I hate running with a burning passion��

    Its because it hurts so freaking bad because my feet are all messed up��

  • Could you share your running playlists? I love, love this video! I love to run, but I always seem to go in phases of running for a month then fading away from it for a month and etc. With quarantine, I’ve gotten back into it and have noticed my playlist is really lacking!

  • I’ve had this video in my queue for so long and have been so excited to watch it. I started running inconsistently by last year of college. Thinking back I love the way I felt, every time I went further I felt so proud of my self Amal’s my mental health thrived. Now as a very overweight person, I struggle to find motivation. I tell myself “no one wants to see that.” Or “you’re wasting your time.” I know these aren’t true and I just need a push to get started. Consider this my very long winded thank you for making this video.

  • I’ve really started to love running lately and I’m running at least 3x a week:) I’m having a few problems with shin splints at the moment but trying to resolve these asap! Awesome video Xx

  • 1:47 hat and shades Ninja look! Yassss! That is actually the look I go for and you do feel a little more incognito its true!!!! Great video babe and looking asnradiant as ever!! xx

  • I’m coming back after two months of running. I started trying to be able to run a full mile and this morning I just completed over 2 miles and 25 minutes straight. Your tips were very helpful in getting here and as I continue to add time and distance!

  • Jessica! I just wanted to send along a thank you for making this video! I watched it a few weeks back and it inspired me to get out a do a little 5 mi run/ walk today! Would love to maybe see a follow up video on what stretches you do before/ after, playlists you like, etc.? I really appreciate your content!! ����

  • I started running 3 days ago cos i felt so motivated. Then my period came after that day. And now im here eating foods while watching running hacks videos trying to find my runaway motivation. ��

  • I love this! You have really changed my mentality on running. I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and just walking but i want to change it up to jogging. ��

  • Any tips on how to regulate breathing while running???

    That’s my major problem. I start getting sharp side pain when I’m running and I’ve been told it’s because I’m not breathing correctly but idk what exactly that means. ������

  • I thought I was weird for having trouble to breathe while listening to music ��
    Will definitely try to listen to something slower next time I go for a run, thanks for the tip ❤️

  • I really Love this video and found it very helpful. I also Love that you are just sitting and talking about something that you are passionate about. I love your setting and I just really Loved this!!! ������������������

  • Ready for a part 2 of this!!!!! Seriously changed my mindset and have been on a streak the last two weeks. Thank you for motivator

  • This video came at the PERFECT time for me,I am just starting to run to get in shape after my 4th baby, and I need all the motivation I can get, thank you for this! I had been aiming for 1 mile,and tonight I ran and walked 1.65 on the treadmill!!!

  • I am 52 yrs old, this video!! I have so many health issues, alot hereditary. I was just telling my husband if I could give ANY advice to my younger self and to younger generations now, stay active and exercise your body will absolutely love you when your older and try to eat as healthy as you can all the time. Jessica, this video! I will be sharing on Facebook page as well as to all my kids. Thank you so much. I will be walking and than running as soon as I can handle that. ❤����

  • Jessica, I hate running. Despise it. I joke that if I’m running, it’s because I’m running for my life haha. But watching this, omg, you have hard core motivated me! I have two kids (6 and 4) and am still trying to lose that damn baby weight. But more importantly, to your point, I want to be healthy and live long for my kids. You make it seem possible!

  • Love it. I am challenging myself to a 10k too. Was too late to enter the Norwich 10k but my sister ran it. Love a park run too. Thanks for inspiring again Carly x

  • OMG! I was just thinking that I should get into doing more exercise and this video has helped so much! I love how you made it so simple. Just run. I used to think that I had to run for a certain amount of time or distance to get anywhere and kept feeling terrible after running and now I feel like oh just run and don’t look at the timer or distance. Just run and now I can’t wait to begin.:) Thank you!

  • Amazing video! I have always hated running but thanks to you I will be starting!! Silly question what do you use technologically for your tracking and music? Your watch with bluetooth earbuds or do you bring your phone and have something that holds your phone on your arm?

  • I feel that you deserve to hear this. You were that spark. You were that click. I watched this video about a week ago. I have now went on multiple runs and finding myself LOVING it! I’m so proud of myself! I am the girl that said I could NEVER be a runner and here I am running! I cant do timed either but I’m starting by trying to run an hour. Had to buy new shoes because mine were NOT cutting it! Hoping the nike pegasus shoes work for me! They are half off at dicks sporting goods today (memorial day)

  • I can run for 30 mins (and more) but I don’t have a phone or an I pod (I’m writing on an I pad) so it’s very hard to track how far I actually do run in 30 mins. I’m not allowed to get a phone or an I pod so I don’t really know what I can do. At the moment I just run for pleasure, as far as I feel like running that day, but when it comes to doing my school 5K I don’t know if I’m ready because I don’t know how far I’ve been running every run. Wow I said run a lot ��
    Do you know what I can do?

  • You are such a relatable person! I just love you! I’ve been so spoiled by watching your declutters that I watched another youtuber yesterday and she decluttered like 25% and it was so hard to watch because I wanted her to be more ruthless like you! Lol! ��

  • Loved this! I have been a runner off and on for years. That seems to be the only thing that really helped me maintain a healthy weight. Inspirational video!

  • One day when I first started working out, I told my husband that I was disappointed because I didn’t get a great work out in, and he told me that anything is better than sitting on the couch eating Doritos. That changed my whole mindset. Even if I don’t feel like doing a crazy workout, I just do what I’m feeling that day because it’s better than nothing.

  • Great video on running Carly! I love running and I do agree with you on all points you make here. Just did a running gear video myself, if anyone want a closer look at different running gear and gadgets it’s on my channel:-)
