It’s not just about running.
For many athletes, running in order to perform a specific task, such as tackling a defender, is a prerequisite to success.
It’s a skill that’s crucial to running well on the field.
And running is one of the fastest movements in the world.
So how does one become a runner?
Here are a few things to consider before you begin your journey to becoming one.
Running is a skill Exercise science major, Stephanie Johnson, from the University of Sydney, wants to know how to become a better runner.
The 25-year-old is an active runner, who loves to run on the track and in the gym.
Ms Johnson, who studied Sport Science, says her aim is to develop the skills that will allow her to run as a professional.
“I think running is so fundamental to the fitness industry,” she said.
“It’s a part of our daily lives.
I’m really interested in the biomechanics of running, how it relates to everything from training, diet and exercise, to the way it affects our mental and physical health.”
So it’s really important that we understand the underlying biomechanical principles that govern what we do on the treadmill, the running track, and the gym.
She also believes that a lot of runners start out running because they are interested in their fitness and want to see what the real deal is. “
If you see a gym, it’s going to make you want to do a little bit more running,” Ms Johnson said.

“We’ve seen a lot more runners starting to run to improve their fitness because they’ve been frustrated with what they were doing,” she explained.
“The more they do, the more they want to get back out there and run again.”
So how do you start?
To help you get started, Ms Johnson created a training plan for the exercise science major.
“There’s no easy way to start,” she says.
After your first session, you’ll want to keep it simple. “
So if you’re just starting out, you might want to stick to a very low intensity run and work up to a slightly more intense session.”

“Start out with about 10 minutes of moderate running or just 20 minutes of easy running,” she advised.
What you should do to improve your running skills: If you’re a beginner, you could start with one or two sessions a week. “
Once you’ve run for a couple hours, you’re probably going to want to switch to more challenging runs.”

“A lot of people who have not had much training know that they can get better with some easy runs,” Ms Dolan said.
But if you’ve got more experience, she recommends starting with one-on-one sessions with a coach.
“This gives you the chance to get really comfortable with your running and to see if it is what you need to improve,” she added.
Ms Johnson has started running for fun, but she’s also started to consider the benefits of it for her personal health. “
For me, I would start with a half-hour session a week, with a warm up, and then gradually ramp up to two hours a week for more difficult runs.”

“Some of my friends have been doing it for quite a while,” she revealed.
“They are all pretty fit and strong, but I think that running has been a big part of their lives for a long time.”
She believes that running can help boost mental and emotional wellbeing, which could be beneficial to people struggling with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.
“People need to know that this is an activity that they should really enjoy, especially for those who are struggling with any mental health issue,” Ms Johns said.
