BEGINNERS: How to start a new exercise program and make it stick.

What a great goal! You have the right perspective, that is, making exercise part of your daily routine and a lifelong habit. Your desire to set up a consistent routine is commendable. Certainly, you can run seven days a week, as some runners do; however, should you run seven days a week is the real question! The short answer is no. As a new runner, you would be wise to vary your exercise routine to include a variety of activities because this will boost your fitness, provide better conditioning and make you a more well balanced athlete. This will also decrease your injury risk and keep you mentally engaged in your training. At some later point, you may acquire the necessary conditioning to run every day and then you can re-assess your training plan, but keep in mind that adequate rest is always essential to any training plan.
