I do yoga and pilates and I want to start running?
Question by Other Girl: I do yoga and pilates and I want to start running?
I used to walk everyday but I took up yoga and pilates and I did not have time for a 40 minute walk everyday anymore. I want to start running or jogging because I would have time to run for at most 20 minutes a day. How do I start? Do I do yoga and pilates before running? What should I eat and how much should I drink before I run?

You should do yoga/pilates before running, so you can warm up a bit and reduce the chance of injury. As for what to eat, stick with not eating too much right before running. Try a good food high in carbs, like a banana right before your run.
