2. Running Pace for Exercise

Beginners should run at an easy pace. Many factors affect how this is defined, however, including age, fitness, running experience, and terrain. For new runners, it's a good idea to run slowly enough so that you are still able to carry on a conversation. As your body becomes conditioned to the movements, your endurance will increase and you will be able to run faster without gasping for breath.
