What is it you really want to achieve by Christmas, for example? Would you like to aim for a specific distance, such as a 5km run or take part in a fun run? Perhaps you could combine running with an exercise class, such as Pilates, yoga or Nordic walking.
Planning a new running route will help to keep you motivated. For ideas, look at thegoodrunguide.co.uk. Local running clubs are also a great place to start if you want to discover new routes in and around your area, or just to ask for advice – most groups are friendly and happy to help, even if you don’t want to join.
Another easy goal is nding a 5km Park Run near to where you live and giving it a go (parkrun.org.uk). You could also start recording your routes with a FitBit, Strava or Map My Run app to help increase your motivation.
