This New York Times article gives a great guide on how to get started on running. I highly recommend the run-walk method pioneered by the Olympian Jeff Galloway because it will help you improve your endurance while enjoying the challenge of pacing and pushing yourself.
Multiple apps are available to help you step up your running game! These will help you to track your miles, heartrate, routes, speed, and much more. Most of them also allow you to post your run history to share with public. This means you can find which routes others runners run near you! It’s certainly a fun way to visually track your runs. Some of my top recommendations are Strava and MapMyRun.
Find running communities on Sports & Fitness Meetup. Also check out Decathlon USA’s meetup page for all running events happening here at the Decathlon USA store.

Get Fit Through HIIT
What is HIIT?
HIIT is the acronym for High-Intensity Interval Training; it incorporates 30 seconds to 1 minute of intense workouts with 10-30 seconds of breaks in between. According to various sources, there is no universal HIIT session duration but most HIIT sessions are around 30 minutes..
