Try to pace!

Jogging along the creek trail / donjd2

Novice runners start out strong but soon run out of breath and start to slow down.
Try to improve this by pacing your running.

Pacing means to keep running for a set distance at a constant speed.
For courses that have distances displayed, try timing yourself and sticking to that time.
If you have just started running, you should aim to complete 1km in 7-8 minutes.
