RunintheCity saidMany new runners or even returning runners find that first run a...traumatic experience that involves vomiting and pain for several days afterward.
The key to continuing?
Do some good stretching for a couple of days. Drink lots of fluids. Before your next run, engage in a good warm up. Lots of jumping jacks, push ups and sit ups. Then run. Do what you can at what pace you can. Once finished, spending a good 15 minutes stretching and cooling down.
Rest a day or two, be sure to sleep plenty. Then repeat.
Next thing you know you'll be ready for your first 5K.
