Step 05
“Five Rules for Asking a Girl Out”

In this step I am going to tell you the five golden rules that you should use when you ask a girl out.

  • Do Not Call Her Immediately
  • Do Not Ask Her for a Date Straight Away
  • Make Your Date More Fun than Stress
  • Just Tell Her Your Plans Instead Of Asking Her
  • Convince Your Girl

It can be quite nerve racking to decide on the best way to ask a girl out.  You need to consider a number of things, but these are the five rules you should always remember. 

Do Not Call Her Immediately

Once you have your hands on the girl’s phone number, don’t call her straight away.  If you appear too eager, she may think you are pressurizing her, and she may be put off you altogether.

Give her time to get used to the idea that you will be phoning her, but don’t leave it too long or someone else may beat you to it.  Usually, waiting for twenty-four to forty-eight hours is best.

Do Not Ask Her for a Date Straight Away

When you do get around to phoning, don’t just jump into asking her out on a date.  Spend some time chatting about life in general, or a topic that interests you both.  If your instincts are telling you that you need to get to know each other a bit better before dating, arrange to meet for coffee or a lunch just as friends.

Alternatively, if you are arranging any type of group get together, you tell her she is welcome to come along. That way, you are not actually inviting her on a date, but it gives you the opportunity to get to know her better if she does come.

Make Your Date More Fun than Stress

Some people can make such a big deal out of their first date, they forget to have fun.  Your girl will be much more impressed if you are relaxed and can show her that you are enjoying her company and whatever it is you are doing.

If you are stressing out about making sure the date is a success, you are likely to be trying too hard and that doesn’t create a good impression and can be just as bad as being over-confident and blasé about the situation.

When choosing a venue or activity for your first date stick to something within your comfort zone.  You will have enough nervous energy to contend with, without having the stress that comes from dealing with a new environment or activity at the same time.

Just Tell Her Your Plans Instead Of Asking Her
7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 5It is very easy to get it wrong when you are choosing what to do and where to go on a first date.  Someone has to take the initiative, and that should be you.  Have some ideas in mind of what you would like to do, but tell your date what you’re thinking about.  Providing she does not object or make alternative suggestions, you should go ahead and make the arrangements.

If your suggestions do not meet with your girl’s approval, ask her what she would like to do instead.  You may both need to compromise to find something you both want to do. Depending on how well you have gotten to know each other, it will improve your chances of arranging dates that will meet with her approval.  You will soon learn whether she is happy to let you go ahead with arrangements for your dates without first consulting her. Many girls these days expect an equal say in the decisions, and if they don’t get it, they may perceive you as being domineering and controlling.  

On the other hand, there are still a few girls around who are happy to leave all the decisions to you. Convince Your Girl Your first date gives you the opportunity to gather information about your girl and decide if you are likely to be compatible if you continue dating.  Just as she is examining you and forming an opinion, you need to do the same with her personality. 

If you find that your opinions are conflicting about the small unimportant things, then you may have serious differences when it comes to the important life decisions.  Compromising may not be an option unless both parties are willing. [Adsense-A]

Step 06 “Mistakes to Avoid When Asking A Girl Out”

There are some common mistakes that you should avoid when you asking a girl out.  In this step I will tell you what those mistakes are.

  • Negative Thinking
  • Don’t Chase a Girl Who Is Not Interested In You
  • Control your Insecurity and Jealousy
  • Fear of Rejection

Knowing how to impress a girl is often not enough.  If you want to be successful you need to know the pitfalls and how to avoid them.  This step will tell you more about the pitfalls to avoid.  Negative Thinking Whether you consciously or unconsciously allow yourself to think negative thoughts, it will show up in your body language. 

If your date is perceptive enough to read your body language or picks up on your negativity through your conversation, that alone will put your date off.  In many cases it can also prevent you from asking girls out on a date.  The only one that can get rid of that negativity is you.  You need to concentrate on what you have got, and your best features and eliminate the negative thoughts to improve your self-confidence.

Don’t Chase a Girl Who Is Not Interested In You One of the worst mistakes you can make is to keep pushing for a date when the girl has already turned you down.  If she really isn’t interested in you and you keep pushing she could perceive that you are stalking her. 

That could become a serious problem and get you into a lot of trouble. You need to take what she is saying at face value and if she rejects your request for a date, back off.  You need to turn your attentions elsewhere. You need to be perceptive to whether the girl is interested, but is just playing hard to get by saying no when you first ask her out. 

If she starts ignoring you, and try’s to avoid your company, you can be pretty sure she meant no when she said it.  If she doesn’t try and avoid you, or continues to talk to you, it might be worth waiting a while and trying again. Control your Insecurity and Jealousy 7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 6

Another often unforgivable mistake is to become jealous and insecure about your relationship.  If you start being moody when she talks to other blokes, or you complain about her spending time with her girlfriends, you are on a slippery slope.  Once it starts it usually only gets worse.  You need to constantly remind yourself that your girl is not your possession, and she is with you because she wants to be.

Fear of Rejection

Rejection by a girl can dent your self-confidence and your ego.  Usually if it’s just your ego, you already think a lot of yourself and will convince yourself that it was her and not you, so no real harm done.

On the other hand, if your self-confidence takes a real knock you may find it harder to get up the courage to ask another girl out.  You can always talk it through with someone you really trust that can help you to see it is not the end of the world and support you while you move on.  The longer you leave it to move on, the harder it will be. 

Step 07 “The First Impression Is a Lasting Impression”
  • Be Aware of Your Body Language
  • Keep Some Secrets of Your Personality And Reveal Slowly
  • Take Control of Your Date
  • Be Funny and Have Fun

If you are looking for shortcuts to impress a girl, you are wasting your time.  They may be attracted to you, but are unlikely to fall at your feet without some effort on your part.  However, first impressions do count and if you make a poor first impression you will have to work all the harder to change it. 

Be Aware of Your Body Language

Be self-aware and know what your body language is saying about you.  It is possible for a girl to tell a lot about you from your body language, before you approach or speak to her.

Watching other people and thinking about what their body language is saying to you, can help you to become more aware of you come across.

Keep Some Secrets of Your Personality and Reveal Slowly
7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 7Getting to know each other takes time and we all tend to be on our best behavior until we know the person better.  That is OK, unless you are hiding a deep dark secret side to your personality. It is easy to make the excuse that you didn’t want to frighten her off on the first date, but she may feel more aggrieved if she finds out you have not been truthful with her from the start. Take Control of Your Date You have asked the girl out so you can expect to have some control on what you do and where you go. [Adsense-A]

The girl may well be happy to sit back and let you take charge, but you take that for granted at your peril. You need to remember that you are both equal and you both have a right to your own opinions.  On the first date especially, you are getting to know about each other, so there should not really be any reason for debates, heated or otherwise. 

Steer the conversation to keep it away from what could be controversial subject until you know a bit more about each other. Be Funny and Have Fun If you have taken time to get to know each other as friends before going on a date, you will probably find it is a lot easier to be natural in each other company and you can relax and just have fun. 7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 8

If it is a blind date, or you haven’t had the chance to get to know each other you will likely be more uptight.  It is not the best time to try out a new restaurant or venue you haven’t been to before.  The more familiar you both are with the surroundings the easier it will be to concentrate on each other and relax.

Wrapping up

Asking a girl out requires some sensitivity and skill that will come with practice.  You are like to have some good and some bad experiences.  You need to learn from the good ones and put the bad ones behind you so you can move on.

You should never let a bad experience dent your confidence because that is the key to getting your next date.  Girls are more attracted to confident and assured males.

Not all girls are out for what they can get out of a relationship.  However, if you do meet one that is very material orientated and start to date her, you will need deep pockets to keep the relationship going.  Unless you run out of money, you may find she is hard to break up with, or she may quickly move on when she finds someone who can give her more.  You need to decide what type of girl you are looking for.

This Article has been written to provide you with an insight into how you can improve your ability to get dates.  Unfortunately, as human beings are all different and you will rarely find two people who are immediately in tune with each other’s personalities, you do need to build up some knowledge of the girl before she is likely to go out with you.  This Article will help to guide you in the right direction.

This Article also attempts to give you an insight into the female psyche, but as I am sure you often heard said, “who can understand a women’s mind”?  The answer is probably not you, but it can be fun trying.  So why not have some fun?

Just want to share with you 7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date. Surely, you will never fail when follow these tips. Let action with the girl you like now.

Step 01
“Different Types of Girls”

In this step I will tell you about the types of girls that you are likely to meet.  I will also tell you how you should go about getting to know them better.

  • Girls Who Have a Calm Nature
  • Girls Who Are Bold
  • Girls Who Are Flirty
  • Girls Who Are Less Attractive
  • Girls Who Are Boring

I will tell you how to recognize the different categories of girls, so you can choose one that is compatible with you and your environment, behavior and habits. 

Girls Who Have a Calm Nature

If you are looking for a long-term or possibly a life-time partner to settle down with, you should look for this type of girl.

She will have a serious out-look and approach to life and have little interest in things frivolous.  She is a ‘one-man woman’ and will expect the man to wear the trousers in a relationship.  She is likely to be compliant and willing to please.  However, she does have standards and habits that are set in stone and will be almost impossible to change.  She will judge you by her standards and expect you to have similar expectations and goals in life.

Girls Who Are Bold

These girls appear to be and are very different from calm girls.  However, they have an underlying seriousness when it comes to a love relationship, and they will expect commitment from you.

These girls enjoy flirting.  They prefer it when they are the center of your attention.  They are very outgoing and fun to be with, but you need to be aware of their invisible boundaries.  They will cut you off very quickly if you overstep the mark.  Remaining faithful is an essential in a relationship with these girls.  They may appear possessive as they can display a need to hang out with you all the time.

Girls Who Are Flirty

You may often come across girls who are flirty, but very shallow.  They often jump from one relationship to another, or have several ongoing at the same time.  You should never expect more than a short but often exhilarating fling with these girls.
7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a dateThey are usually very attractive and belief it’s their right to be admired and pampered by boys.  They are often referred to a ‘man’s woman’ because they may not connect with other females easily.  They may always expect you to pay on a date, and you will need to shower them with gifts. They are usually accused of only being interested in what they can get out of any relationship, so you can expect to be replaced once the first initial excitement of the relationship calms down.

They detest boredom and normality. Girls Who Are Less Attractive These girls may not have the looks, but they do have a warm and very supportive nature.  They can very easily become your life-long best friend, rather than a date. They believe that they have nothing to offer in the attraction’s stakes and can become very wary with boys, who are attracted to them.  They mistrust the intention of boys that offer flowery compliments and make romantic gestures.

They have a mind of their own and expect boys to be more attracted to their mind, than their looks.  They put friendship much higher up in the relationship stakes than love.  You may need to do the same and forget about romantic gestures and dates. Girls Who Are Boring Coming into contact with girls who are boring is not uncommon.  That usually means that you have no shared interests, on which to build a relationship.

During your initial contact, the girl may seem fun and outgoing.  However, once you’ve covered all the get to know you bits. You will likely run out of things to talk about.  As you have no shared interests or hobbies the relationship will quickly stall.  It may be better not to start a relationship in the first place.

Step 02
“Planning to Ask a Girl Out?”

There are several things you need to plan when you are going to ask a girl out.  This step will guide you through the planning. [AdSense-A]

  • Reason for Failure
  • Plan to do Something Exciting
  • Plan the Logistics of Your Date in Advance
  • Take it as Read, That You Have to do the Asking
  • Choosing the Right Moment
  • Knowing When the Time is Right to ask Her Out.

You are likely to come across some tough situations throughout your life-time.  However, perhaps one of the toughest will be getting it right, when you ask a girl out on a date.  You are hoping she will say yes straight away.  However, you may not always be that lucky and she may say no, or make excuses as to why she cannot go out with you. Here are some tips on how you can get the girl to say yes to your request for a date.  Reason for Failure If you are a stranger to the girl, you are asking out, the chances are she is more likely to say no.  You could be ‘Jack the Ripper’ for all she knows.

Her response will likely be an act of self-preservation that has little to do with you.  She will be applying what she has been taught since early childhood ‘not to talk, or go with strangers’ You should not allow a rejection to dent your self-confidence.  You need to take things slowly and spend some time as acquaintances, getting to know each other. Once she gets to know and starts to feel comfortable with you, she is much more likely to say yes. Plan to Do Something Exciting Choose something fun activities you can do with a group of friends.  That gives you the opportunity to invite the girl to join your group as a friend. 

You then have a non-threatening opportunity to relax and interact so you can get to know each other better. If you succeed in getting the girl to hang out with you and some friends, you will find it much easier to ask her on a date.  She is more likely to say yes, because she has seen that you can be a fun guy. Be spontaneous, and don’t be afraid to show you have a caring side.  Show her you are intelligent and can talk about topics other than what’s going on at school or at home. 

Talk about subjects or hobbies that really interest you, and take time to find out what she likes and dislikes.  It is all about natural and free flowing communication and getting to know about each other. Plan the Logistics of Your Date in Advance Plan ahead and know what you intend to do on the date.  Then when you ask her if she is free that evening, you can tell her what you have planned and ask if that is OK with her.  If she has already said she is free that night, she is unlikely to say no. If she sees you are willing to compromise about what you want to do during the date, it will help to win you brownie points. However, if after saying she is free, she then starts to make excuses why she cannot go on the date with you.  You should accept it as a good sign, she is not attracted to you. 7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 2

Alternatively, if she says, she already has plans for the evening you want to take her out; you can try some charm and gentle persuasion.  If she knows you are a fun person to be with, and she is attracted to you, you may get her to change her plans.  Or you can ask her what night would be OK with her.

Take it as Read That You Have to do the Asking.

Don’t labor under the misapprehension that a girl will ask you out on a date.  Contrary to a popular belief, there are only a very small number of girls who will ask you out.  If you don’t want to miss out, then be prepared to be the one that asks for a date.

Choosing the Right Moment

Making sure you choose the right moment to ask a girl on a date is important.  If you rush in and ask her before she has had the chance to get to know you, she will say no.  It may take several meetings as friends before you find the right moment.  You need to be patient, use your instincts and learn to read the signs she is giving you, and you should know instinctively when she is ready to progress to dating.

Knowing When the Time is Right to Ask Her Out

There are several signs that may indicate that the girl is ready to go out on a date with you.  In addition to the way she looks at you and her body language, you may notice a more intimate tone in her conversation with you.

She will show an interest in you, even when you talk about something boring or are saying very little.  You need to rely on your instinct and natural ability to know when the time is right to ask her for a date.

Step 03
“Ideas for Being Romantic”

If you want to ask a girl out on a date, you should approach her with some style and romance.  The advice in this step will help you to bring out the romantic side of your personality.

  • Don’t be Afraid to Show your Feminine Side or Caring Nature
  • Believe in Yourself
  • Sit Down and Make a List
  • Make the First Move
  • Communications
  • Be There for Her when She Needs You
  • Make Sure She Notices You

Having a girl as a friend is one thing; it is the moving on to a romantic relationship that can be the difficult part.  Making a smooth transition will be easy if you approach it in the right way.  What you say, and the way you behave, when you ask a girl out, can be the key to your success or your failure. 

Don’t be Afraid to Show your Feminine Side or Caring Nature

If you are really interested in a girl, you need to let her know.  That often means toning down your ‘macho’ attitude and behavior and letting her see you have a softer and more caring nature.  If you come across as having too much testosterone, you risk frightening or turning the girl off, and she will make excuses not to go out with you.

Many of the male populations are reluctant to admit that they have a feminine side, especially in front of other males.  However, the best way to get the girl to go out on a date is to show her you do have a sensitive and caring nature.  If you do this, and she continues to turn you down, then you should forget her and find another girl to ask out.

Believe in Yourself

You may not be the most attractive male on the planet, but you may not be the ugliest.  You need to be strong in the belief that you do have something to offer a girl.  However, you do need to find the right balance between being self-confident or being over-bearing, if you want to be successful in attracting the girl.

If like most males starting out on the dating game, you think you don’t have a romantic bone in your body, you may be surprised.  Following a few simple steps can introduce you to your romantic side.

Sit Down and Make a List

If you are not good at remembering things, you can write them down in a list.  Girls are well impressed if you remember their birthday, or special occasions such as anniversaries, without having to be reminded.  The minimum you should do is send her a card, but you will gain a lot more brownie points if you send flowers, chocolates or take her out for a nice meal to celebrate.

You can also use your list to make a note of her likes and dislikes such as does she have a favorite perfume, what is her favorite color and so on?  It will save you a whole lot of grief if you choose something she really likes as a gift for those special occasions.

Make the First Move

Knowing when your relationship with a girl is ready to move on to the next stage can be tricky.  As many girls will be reluctant to take the initiative, it is up to you to make the first move.  If you over-step the mark, by being too passionate too quickly, you can destroy the relationship.  You need to start off by saying goodbye with a wave or a casual kiss on the cheek.  You can hold hands while walking, or while sitting in the cinema.  The more you get to know her the easier you will find it is to read the signs.  She will let you know when she is ready to progress the relationship.


Communication plays a very important part in any relationship.  It is an excellent tool that provides the opportunity for the couple to find out what makes each other tick.  The conversations should be natural and should be geared as much to listen and learning, as they are about talking.  Initially, the girl may appear to be shy or unwilling to talk about herself, talking about interests or hobbies you have in common will help her to relax.
7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 3You can try to draw her out by asking questions.  However, you should take care that you don’t make her feel like she is being interrogated. Be There for Her When She Needs You If your girl is upset for any reason, or just feels unwell, you need to bring out your caring side and be there for her.  You may not be able to do anything to cure a physical ailment, but you can provide emotional support.  Just by being there and listening shows that you really care and that can help to improve her emotional state. Make Sure She Notices You There is little point in you wasting your time and energy putting on a show for a girl, is she doesn’t even know you are there.  You need to make sure your actions involve something she is interested in and ask her to get involved or to give you her opinion on what you intend doing.  Unfortunately for some, that does mean you need to talk to her and get to know her first, before trying to impress.

Step 04
“Tips for Asking a Girl Out”

If you are asking girls for a date and being rejected, then you should read the tips in this step to find out what you are doing wrong.

  • Presentation and Punctuality are Necessities


  • Remaining Calm and Happy



  • Compliment Her and Make the Environment Interested



  • Follow Your Instincts



  • Always Stay Positive and Thoughtful



  • Show Your Intent and Passion



  • Look For Positive Dates


 Society takes a much more casual view of dating habits these days than used to be the case in our parents and grandparents days.  It was almost unheard of for individuals to have multiple relationships ongoing at the same time.  Dating was taken seriously and when it became a longer term relationship is usually ended in marriage. Whereas, today it is not that unusual for individuals to frequently change dating partners, or have several at the same time.  It is much less likely that individuals will enter into a marriage with their first dating partner.  Unfortunately, this modern practice of trying out multiple dates in the search for the right partner can have disastrous consequences of a criminal nature. Preparation and Punctuality are Necessities Preparing for a first date is important.  If you want to make a good impression you have to start by considering how you will look.  Ask yourself what your date is likely to think of the way you present yourself?  Will she be able to see that you have made an effort? 

Making an effort with how you appear, especially on the first date will help to create a favorable impression. Punctuality for your first date is just as important as your appearance.  Even being a few minutes’ late, sends out the wrong signals before your date has even started. 

You are better off planning to be at your meeting place a few minutes early. Remaining Calm and Happy Try to remain calm and don’t let your nerves show on a first date.  If you are feeling a bit uptight, taking a few deep breaths can help to relax you before your date turns up. If you are someone who is easily wound up by poor service, then you need to select the venue for your date carefully.  You will not win any brownie points if you lose your temper or create a fracas about the littlest thing.  Remaining cool, calm and collected if you are justified in making a complaint creates a good impression and shows that you can act responsibly.

Don’t Shy Away from Giving Her Compliments Any individual, especially a female who says she doesn’t appreciate a compliment is lying.  However, the compliment does have to be sincere or your date will likely pick up on it.  Although this is sometimes an area where you may need to rely on your tact and sensitivity, especially if she asks you what you think about her new dress, or a new hairstyle and you hadn’t noticed.  She will not thank you for your honesty if you tell her you hate it.

Actively listening to what your date has to say and accepting her right to have her own opinions, helps to show that you value and respect your date.  If you allow your attention to drift, or constantly interrupt to impose your own opinions over hers, you are unlikely to get a second date. You need to take responsibility for keeping the conversation flowing as naturally as you can. 

You can do that by ensuring there are no long gaps in the conversation.  Having a mental list of topics you can introduce into the conversation, that you know will interest your date, helps to avoid those uncomfortable silences.

Rely on Your Instincts and Tell the Truth.7 cool and fun ways to ask a girl out on a date 4
It is unlikely that on a first date you will get around to telling your girl all your deepest, darkest secrets.  However, there are some things that you need to be up front about and you will know instinctively what they are.  If you want the relationship to continue and develop beyond the first date you need to tell her.  She can then decide if she wants to continue dating you.  You need to think carefully about what would happen if she finds out about your secret from another source, before you get around to telling her.  It will get harder to tell her if you keep putting it off.

On the other hand if she asks you a direct question, you can always lie.  If you do you are likely to feel guilty about lying and when it does eventually come out you will have to explain why you lied.  That can be enough to finish your relationship.

Remain Positive Despite Bad Experiences

If you can get through life without having to deal with a rejection in the dating game, you will be very lucky.  Nearly everyone will have at least one, if not more poor dating experiences at some point in their life.  You just have to learn what you can from it and move on.  You have to accept that life is not a ‘bed of roses’ and it is not always your fault that it didn’t work out.

If you think you were even partially responsible for the breakdown of the date, then you can take steps to ensure that the same things don’t ruin any of your future dates.  You need to remain positive about finding the right date for you in the future.

Committed to Finding a Potential Life-Time Partner

If you are committed to finding a life-time partner as opposed to a girl for casual dating, you need to be clear in your own mind about what you are looking for.  You also need to be upfront with the girl, as she may not feel the same way as you do about a life-time relationship.

There are some girls out there who would be willing to commit to a life-time partner for any number of reasons.  However, unless you have spent time getting to know each other first, which usually means dating.  There are no guarantees that you will be compatible or that a life-time partnership will survive.

Positive Dating Experiences

If you are new to the dating game or are returning after a long period of time, it can be a daunting prospect.  You will need to brush up on your knowledge and techniques if you want to find a good dating partner.

Spend some time people watching to see others in action and talk to friends and other people who may have just gone or are going through the same looking for a date experience.  They will no doubt be a good source of advice and tips on how to go about it.

Let continue 100 Best Flirting Tips for Girls and Guys.

  1. How to tell if a girl really likes you.

Whenever you are talking to a girl that you are interested in, you can actually look at her eyes to see if she also feels the same way. One of the things that you can check out for this is her pupils. When they are dilated, while she is looking at you with deep interest, then it is a sign that she is really into you.

  1. What her crossed leg is telling you.

In most cases, women always have their legs crossed when they are sitting down and talking. If you are talking to one, and her crossed leg is pointed towards you, then it is a clear indication that she is interested in you. This is actually true, especially if she rocks that same leg back and forth while still

  1. Keep a training journal. Just before starting your training program for running, make sure to have training journal on your side for it. The journal can help you in monitoring your progress as the days and weeks pass by. Aside from that, it can also remind you on certain things that you need to do or achieve during the whole duration of the training.

Aside from that, it can also offer lots of tips on how to prevent injuries while you are training.
  4. Visit a running store for your running shoes. A running store is described or named as such, due to the fact that they specialized in shoes and other things that pertain to running. Thus, it is best that you acquire your first pair of running shoes from them. Aside from that, in most cases, they have assistants that can provide you better assessment when it comes to choosing the kind of shoes that would suit you best.
  5. Practicing near at home. If you are in the process of selecting places to train yourself for the race, then it is best if you can pick a routine, which is close to your home. This way, you won’t have to spend some time to get to another place just to train. With its convenience, you can have more chances of being able to stick with it.
  6. Learn more each day. Even experts in running would say that they learn something new from it everyday. Thus, you should do so, not just by running more, but also in reading magazines or books about it. There are lots of books and magazines available today at bookstores, as well as in online stores.
  7. Don’t be ashamed of walking. If you are new to running or to getting some exercise for that matter, then you may have to start with walking, to properly condition your body for running. Keep in mind that lots of people are going through this route as well. Aside from that, some people even do not run, but simply walk in order to get in shape.
  8. Variety is the spice of life. Going through the same route each and every day of your training can become boring. Thus, it is a good idea to vary it. Visit other places, which you can reach through running or walking, so that you can make it more interesting and less boring. Aside from that, it can also make your body tougher for having to adjust to a new kind of terrain.
  9. Try to improve your speed from time to time. Training for speed can also help you improve your leg muscles. Thus, speeding up towards a certain light post and running at a normal speed to the next can already provide you with more benefits. Do this on a regular basis, so that you can also vary your training.
  10. Build your endurance. Running is one of the best ways to build your endurance. However, there are also other activities you can do, which can improve your stamina, aside from running. Some of which would be brisk walking towards the grocery store, using the stairs in climbing up to your office, and more. By doing all these things, you will be able to build your endurance more, and experience the effects when you run.
  11. Run harder in the later part of your runs. Running harder in the later part of your runs can actually provide you with a lot of beneficial effects. For one, it can improve your stamina. Aside from that, it can also improve your ability to sprint. Thus, do this technique from time to time, so that you can experience the desirable results from it soon.
  12. How to go through rough spots. When you have to go through rough terrain while you are running, you may find it a bit difficult, especially if its unfamiliar to you. To do it more effectively, you should focus more on your feet every time it touches the ground. Aside from that, you should also become more conscious on the sounds of your breath. By doing this, you won’t be able to notice the toughness of the route, and be able to go through it with ease.
  13. Getting rid of side cramps. One of the best ways to get rid of side cramps is to do abdominal breathing, when you are running. Aside from gaining relief from side cramps, it can also develop your lungs more, since it is the right way to breathe. Moreover, abdominal breathing also helps your body absorb more oxygen, which can improve your overall well being.
  14. Don’t be too hard on yourself. There may be times when you are not able to hit your goals on time. When this happens, you should not be too hard on yourself and give up on it. You should let it go, and focus on the next goal that you want to target. You should not get discouraged of your failures, since they can be the reasons that you would have more drive in hitting your goals.
  15. Don’t forget to get some rest. Resting is actually as important as the other elements in working out or in running. This is because when you are resting, you are actually providing your body a chance to repair its worn out tissues. Thus, it is best that you make it a part of your training plan, so that you can maximize your benefits from it. [AdSense-A]
  16. Buy a treadmill. If you don’t want to miss running, when the weather does not permit you to do so, then you should purchase a treadmill soon. There are certain types of treadmills that are available in affordable prices today, which can already serve its purpose. Check them out, so that you no longer have to spend a rainy day doing nothing inside your house.
  17. Be wary of the sun. When you are running on midday, you should take note that it may be the time when the sun shine’s at its brightest. In other words, you may get exposed to intense hit, which can get you easily dehydrated. Thus, aside from wearing sunscreen, you should also wear a hat. Additionally, don’t forget to properly hydrate yourself by drinking lots of water.
  18. Running during winter. Running on midday during winter time is actually a good idea, since it may not be too cold at that time of the day. However, you may still need to wear layers of winter dress. Aside from that, you should also wear a winter hat, and topping it with a headband, so that you will be able to cover your ears.
  19. Always check the weather. The night before you run, you should make it a point to check the weather for the following day. This can allow you to prepare for the next day’s weather, whether it is going to be hot or cold. If it is hot, one of the things you can do is to fill up your water jug halfway, and put it inside the freezer. The next day, pour some water into it, just before heading out.
  20. Run facing the vehicles. When you are running on a busy street, you should face the traffic, in order to practice safety. This is because, when you run facing traffic, you can easily see if a car goes out of its lane. Aside from that, it is also best if you are running with a partner, so that you can both watch each other’s back.
  21. Eating a well balanced diet. No matter how many miles you would run, you may not be able to achieve your goals if you are not following a healthy diet. A healthy diet should consist of foods that can provide you with the essential nutrients for your body. It should be complete with protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
  22. Run and lose weight to make it easier. If you want to make running easier, you should also aim to lose weight. Each time you lose weight, you would actually be making it easier for you to run, due to the fact that your body would become lighter. Thus, you should make sure that you are following a diet that is not filled with too much fats and calories, so that you can achieve that.
  23. Prevent dehydration. Dehydration is something that you need to prevent when you are running. It is true that drinking more water can effectively prevent it. However, if you are planning to run on longer distances, then you should drink more electrolytes as well. There are drinking products that are filled with electrolytes these days. Aside from that, you can also purchase electrolyte concentrates, which you can mix with your water, from pharmacies.
  24. Eating on long runs. If you are planning to do long runs, which can take hours in a day, then you should eat all throughout of it. Eating every hour while you are doing a long run is actually important. It can help you maintain the level of energy that you need to get through it safely. Thus, you should eat every hour or so, even if you don’t feel like it.
  25. What to do to hasten recovery. If you want to recover immediately after a long run, then you should get some rest, by sleeping at least 8 hours each night. Aside from that, you should also eat and drink within the hour after running. Follow these steps, so that you can shorten your recovery period effectively.
  26. Carrying water during long runs. There are lots of people today who do not want to carry their own bottles of water while they are running. If you are one of them, then at least carry some cash with you, and make sure that there are small corner stores within your route. With that, you can easily stop by them, purchase water, use the bathroom, and rest a bit.
  27. Lift weights. Lifting weights can also help you improve your running, especially if you get your legs involved as well. When you build more muscles, you would actually feel lighter, since you are making your body more capable of carrying itself. Thus, aim to build bigger and stronger muscles, so that you can also run faster.
  28. If there is no time for running. When you only have around 15 minutes of spare time to run, then you should still do it. Running for 15 minutes is actually better than not being able to run at all. To avoid time constraints though, you should setup a running schedule effectively, so that you no longer have to postpone many running sessions.
  29. What to do with your hands while running. Clenching your fist as if you were going to break an egg while you are running, is actually not a good idea, since it means that you are too tight. Instead of doing that, you should cup your hands while running, as if you are trying to hold an egg and preventing it from breaking. This way, you would be more relaxed in running, which can pave the way of deriving more benefits from it.
  30. Running during noontime. Running just before eating lunch actually offers lots of benefits. First of all, it can offer you midday sunlight. Aside from that, it can break your boredom from work. More importantly, it can also help in controlling your appetite during lunch time, which is good, especially if you are trying to lose weight.
  31. Always hydrate yourself. Whether it is hot or cold outside, you should continue to drink more water, especially when you are running. This is because, whenever you sweat, you are decreasing water content in your body. Aside from that, water can also help you in lubricating your joints, carrying blood to different parts of your body, and many more.
  32. Make running more fun. One of the many end products of running is fitness. However, you should make it a fun activity. Running is actually the process that can help you produce the product, which is fitness. Thus, you should see running as an activity that you love to do, otherwise, attaining fitness from it can become quite difficult.
  33. Don’t be afraid to try out new approaches in training. If you are in constant search for updated information about running, then you may come across new approaches about it. If a new method does not go by the book, you should not hesitate trying it out, especially if you feel that it can really help you. However, you should also be able to see if it becomes counterproductive.
  34. Know how to motivate yourself. There may be times when you feel tired about working out, and you don’t feel like getting out of bed to run. This is true, especially when you begin to think that training is becoming more of a chore, instead of something that provides you with pleasure in doing. When this happens, you should know how to motivate yourself, so that you would stay on track. One way of doing it is to remind yourself of your goals in running, so that you can bring back your drive for it.
  35. Eating eggs. In training, you should include eggs on your diet. Eating an egg or two for breakfast would provide your body with its needed protein, in order to repair the worn out tissues due to running. Aside from that, it is also filled with omega 3 fatty acids, which can do wonders for your body. In a nutshell, eggs will not just help in cutting recovery time short, but it can also boost your energy levels. [AdSense-A]
  36. Always think positive. If you are at the point of your running career where you are going through a tough time in hitting your goals, then you should convince yourself that you can do it through positive thinking. Positive thinking can actually provide you with the right mindset that can help you attain your goals. Aside from that, it can also boost your confidence, which can improve your chances of achieving your dreams.
  37. Avoiding injuries. At the first sign of injury, you should immediately back off. In other words, if you feel that there is something wrong with your ankle or legs, then you should take a few days off from running. Not running for 5 or 7 days is actually a lot better, than having to miss weeks or months of it, due to getting the injury worse by not recognizing its signs.running-573762_640
  38. Divide your goals and hit them one at a time. In running, you may have other goals aside from improving your performance in it. Examples would include improving your overall physical condition, getting better endurance, losing weight, and such. It is also possible that you want to increase your mileage on it. Whatever your goals are, divide them, and hit them one at a time to make it simpler.
  39. The right way to run. When you are running, you should take note that your heel touches the ground first, instead of the ball of your foot. If you do it the other way around, or if you let the side of your foot hit the ground first, it can make you fall and injure yourself. Thus, always follow the right way of doing it, and always run in a smooth manner.
  40. Check the way you run. Each person may have his or her own style of running. However, there is actually a proper style of running, which you need to follow, in order to prevent injury as well as to derive benefits from it. Thus, you should consult a coach for it, or a podiatrist. Have him look at the way you run, so that he can offer tips in improving your style.
  41. Get your arms moving. If you want to run faster and longer, you should also move your arms more. Lots of experts say that it is just how a human body is made; the more you sway your arms, your legs will definitely follow. Thus, mover your arms, and achieve a bigger range, so that your legs would have greater movements as well.
  42. Testing yourself. Just like when you are studying, testing can help you check your actual progress in running. Aside from helping you gauge your fitness, joining a race can also help you check your stamina. Thus, you should have an eye to look out for upcoming races at your place, and join one soon.
  43. Achieving better fitness with running can only be done with hard work. If you want to have better overall fitness by running, then you should work hard for it. Achieving fitness through running is actually possible; however, you need to spend time with it, and work your muscles out. Aside from working hard for it, you should also make sure that you eat the right types of foods at the right amounts.
  44. Consider other parts of your body. When you run, what you would be developing would be your legs and lungs. However, it does not mean that you won’t need to develop other parts of your body as well to get fit. Thus, you should also do other workout routines, such as jump squats, crunches, sit ups, pushups, and more, so that you can develop the other parts of your body.
  45. Going uphill. You need to stress your lungs and your muscles to a certain extent, so that you can develop them further. Thus, one of the best things that you can do for it is to run uphill, since it can provide you the kind of challenge, which can push you hard enough. Don’t overdo it though, since it can get your muscles strained.
  46. Always be careful in running. If you want to continue running for a long period of time, then you should do everything to prevent injury. You should warm up properly by doing light stretching, walking, or spending a few minutes on the treadmill. Aside from that, you should also be wary of the dangers you could encounter on the road.
  47. It is not a good idea to run on an empty stomach. When you run, your body would actually make use of your energy so much. Thus, it is best if you can have a light snack just before heading out from your place to run. Having a sandwich with milk, can provide you with the nourishment you need in order to go through minutes or an hour of running.
  48. Don’t limit your carbohydrate consumption too much. Eating healthy carbohydrates is one of the important things that you want to take note of, when you are running. As a rule of thumb, make your diet consist of 70 percent carbohydrates, 15 percent protein, and 15 percent of fat, so that you have sufficient amounts of energy in running. Just make sure your protein sources are not loaded with too much fat though, so that you won’t gain weight.
  49. Don’t forget the supplements. Taking a vitamin-mineral supplement is actually a good idea when you are running. It ensures that your body will be able to adequately convert the foods you intake into energy and protein, to support your increase rate in physical activities. Thus, search for a quality supplement today, so that you can use it soon.
  50. Visualize achieving your goals. One of the best things that you can do to boost your drive in achieving your goals is to use visualization techniques. When you visualize your success, it can greatly help you in achieving your desired results aside from controlling your nerves.

  1. Find someone to run with. Find a partner who is as committed as you when it comes to running. With that, it can keep your motivation in running at a good level. Aside from that, when you have a friend who is expecting you to run with him on a regular basis, then you will find it harder to skip it.
  2. Avoid comparing yourself to others. When you begin running, there may be a tendency for you to compare yourself to others. This is not good, since it can take you away from your own goals. Thus, it is best to always remember that you are running for yourself. When you do that, you will be able to establish your own pacing, and prevent pushing yourself too hard.
  3. Determine your goals in running. Some people run in order to have better body condition, while others are doing it in order to become competitive in the sport that they are involved with. It is important that you determine your goals prior to starting your running activities. This way, you will be able to plan out your running better, and start the right way.
  4. Make up a plan for running. Making up a plan for running is good, since it can help you build your own routine in it. In your plan, it should include the running schedule that you want to follow. Aside from that, it should also involve purchasing the necessary gears that you need. Moreover, it is also important to come up with a well balanced diet.
  5. Tell your friends and family about running. Prior to starting running, it is best if you make your family and your friends aware of your plans. This way, they would be able to support you on what you want to achieve from it, as best as they could. Aside from that, some of your friends or members of your family may even become your running buddies.
  6. Watch runners in television. Watching running competitions in the television is one of the best ways that you can do in order to get inspired in running. Thus, you should take note of the many running competition schedules today. By watching them in the television, you would soon look forward to running, and even joining in one of the upcoming events.
  7. Think about your running goals before going to sleep. Just prior to closing your eyes at night, you should think about your goals in running, and how you are going to achieve them. When you sleep with that thought in your mind, by the time you wake up, you would be raring to go outside and start running. Do it every night, so that you will always look forward for the next day’s running.
  8. Running to lose weight. Running can actually help in losing weight. However, you should not get discouraged if your weight would not go down immediately. This is because it may take some time before you experience weight loss with it. Thus, it is best if you combine it with a healthy diet, as well as performing other forms of exercise.


  1. Be prepared for tougher days. Always remember that while you are trying to make progress in your running, there may be times when it seems too hard to achieve even just your short term goals. When this happens, you should not get discouraged and you should motivate yourself more. Aside from that, be optimistic that the next day would be better.
  2. Running with music. If you want to have more energy while you are running, you should try listening to upbeat music while doing it. Music can actually boost your level of energy. Aside from that, if you are listening to music that you really like, then you may not even notice that you have already spent some time in running and have already covered quite a distance.
  3. Remove negative words from your vocabulary. It is very important that you always encourage positive thoughts when you are running. Thus, you should get rid of negative words from your vocabulary, such as “cannot, never, and won’t”. By doing that, you would become more confident that you are indeed capable of hitting your goals in time.
  4. Keep in mind that there are days when it could hurt. Always remember that when you are running, especially for the first few days, you will be putting your muscles to work at a higher pace. Therefore, you may experience muscle soreness in your thighs and legs. You should be glad in experiencing it though, since it means that your body is working in order to build more muscles, which can support you through the activity.
  5. Learn more about running. You should learn more about what you are getting yourself involved with. Learning more about running can be done through visiting websites that provide valuable information about it. Aside from that, you can also get in contact with professional runners, so that you can ask them some questions about it.
  6. When you run, it does not necessarily mean that you are going to lose weight very soon. Running is a form of exercise, which can boost your body’s metabolism. However, even if you are running on a regular basis, you can still gain weight, especially if you continue eating foods that have high sugar and calorie content. Thus, if you are running to lose weight, make sure that you combine it with a healthy diet as well.
  7. Make sure to have the right kind of shoes. When you are in the process of purchasing a pair of shoes for running, you should keep in mind that not all rubber shoes are made for runners. Thus, you need to make sure that you are buying a pair of running shoes for it. Aside from that, make sure that it fits you well, and that it can provide you with the support that you need for better balance, and to prevent injuries or strains.
  8. Purchasing socks for running. Although most people focus more on buying the right kind of shoes for running, it is actually very important to have the right kind of socks as well. When you use regular cotton socks for running, it can lead to blisters on your feet, which is bad news. Thus, make sure that you are buying running socks to pair with your shoes, so that you would be able to run comfortably.
  9. Ladies should not go for cheaper bras. When it comes to running, if you are a lady, you should provide adequate support to your chest. Thus, it is best that you purchase a bra that is designed for running, which is made with good and quality materials. Even if it may cost as much as your running shoes, a quality bra is still a very good investment.
  10. Running clothes. Running can become a more fun and exciting activity, especially if the clothes you are wearing are comfortable. Wearing the right running clothes does not only mean being comfortable with it. Your clothes should also make you look good, so that you will become more motivated in wearing them as well as in running.
  11. Buying running clothes online. If you are on search for running clothes that are available at reasonable prices, then don’t forget that online shopping can offer you that. Through internet shopping, you can access running clothes conveniently. Aside from that, most online stores offer their products at discounted prices, since they don’t have to deal with high operating expenses.
  12. When to buy cheaper running clothes locally. If you are searching for more affordable running clothes in your locality, you should try to wait for sales events. If you have time to wait though, it is always best to shop at the end of the season. This is because most stores would usually offer the previous season’s products at bargain prices. [AdSense-A]
  13. Knowing the right speed of running. When you are running in order to get fitter and build your stamina, you should be mindful of your speed, so that you can increase your distance without getting too fatigue. One way of determining this is to follow the “talk test” which is done by lots of avid runners. This basically means that if you can talk to your friend comfortably while you are running, then you are at the right speed.

With that, you should listen to your stomach when it says that it is hungry. Because of that, you can address the needs of your body immediately, which is a good thing.
  15. Relaxing while you are running. While you are running, it is not a good time to be bunching up your shoulders towards your ears. When you run it is best to relax, so that you can maximize the benefits you can derive from it. Thus, let you jaw hang loose when you are doing it, as well as shake out your arms as well as your hands in order to relax.
  16. Think in minutes when running. One of the biggest mistakes that some runners have is to focus more on the number of miles they have covered. This is actually not the kind of mindset you want to have when you are running. Instead of thinking about the distance covered, you should become more focused on the time spent on it. If you are able to maintain running for a longer period of time, covering a longer distance with it would simply follow.
  17. Make running another way of meeting new friends. In order to meet new people when you are running, one of the things you can do for it is to sign up with a local running club.

There are some people who may get hooked by running, in which they no longer give a chance to other important activities, such as spending time with their loved ones. Thus, make sure that you are able to properly balance your schedule for running and other important matters. This way, you still get to enjoy running, without certain people regretting that you got involved with it.
  20. Don’t carry loose change when you are running. One of the most annoying things that you can experience is to have loose change on your shorts when you are running. Thus, you should not carry them whenever you are running. Aside from the fact that it can annoy you, it can also distract others who are running along with you.
  21. Don’t overdo it. It is quite normal that you can find yourself talking more about running, even at work or at your own dining table.

Therefore, it is important to set your hard running days a day or two apart, so that your body would be provided with time to recover and prevent overworking your muscles.
  26. What to do with body pains. Once you arrive back at your place, after a hard running day, you may begin to feel body aches or pains. To counter it, one of the best remedies is to apply hot and cold compress on the affected areas alternately. If that would not give you the relief you are looking for, you can always purchase a mild pain reliever for it, and pair it with a day or two of rest.
  27. Cutting down your training. Cutting down the rate of your training is a good idea, especially if you do it on the fourth or fifth week. This is because, that is usually the time when your body would require some time to recover. To make it simpler, just cut down as much as 30 percent of your entire running activities for the said weeks.
  28. Paying attention to your running form. At the start, you should run as lightly as possible, so that you would be able to pay attention to your running form.

  33. Stretching before running. Stretching is actually different from warming up. When it comes to running though, it is not a good practice to do some stretching prior to it.

  34. Avoid the hot tub after a race. After the race, it is quite normal to feel very exhausted, especially if it covers a very long distance. If you have a hot tub though, you should know that it is not a good place to relax after racing.

  36. Drinking water on cups while running. When you are on a race, you may find yourself picking up drinking cups at the stations, to quench your thirst.

  39. Safety on the road. If you are running on a road, where lots of vehicles pass by, then it may not be a good idea to listen to music while doing it. The reason for that is, music can actually prevent you from hearing bikes or vehicles approaching from your back. Thus, always pay attention, and always run on the right side of the road to be safe.
  40. Starting slow. If it is your first time to do some exercises for quite some time, then running should be done on a slower pacing first. This is to make sure that you won’t put too much pressure on your body. Once you get accustomed to the activities that you are doing though, you can progress to something more challenging.
