InstaSays – When does running get easier?

This is surely the question that every beginner has asked at some point. To be honest, I’ve been running for many years and I still ask this question. Usually during mile one, when my body tricks me into feeling like I have never run before! Anyone else ever have that? Mile 1 you feel like you are going to keel over, yet by mile 4/5 you feel like you could run forever!

So, as usual I asked the wise ones on Instagram and below are the answers. Just a little plea from me, if you like these post, please share them. Check my stories every Wednesday and get involved, share story to get others involved. Follow me on Instagram here. These posts only work when people send me their views and they work so much better when more people get involved.

Birthday run with Friends
I think running with friends always makes it easier and much more fun!

When you have a friend or two by your side to keep the miles ticking over.😊


It doesn’t – you get stronger. If it is too hard, just lower the pace & find that happy pace.


In all honesty, I don’t think it does 🤣 🤣


It doesn’t – you just get stronger. Stay consistent! Keep going. The high will come.


When you find the right support network


When you consistently train. But always pushing yourself means it is always hard.


It doesn’t get easier, you just get faster!


It never gets easier. You just get stronger, fitter, faster and test the limits occasionally!


When I joined a running club 😄


An average runner that has found a passion for running and raising money/awareness for MNDA. I have completed London, New York, and Chicago marathons. I am tempted to go for the Six-Star finishers medal, running all the World Marathon Majors, but that's a dream in progress.
