  15. Fill water in the bottles.
  16. Check your breathing pattern – for better running go for rhythmic breathing. It’s not easy and needs practice. Keep practicing.
  17. Eat dates or anything similar which helps you regaining Energy.
  18. Compliment fellow passerby runner not saying…Good Job- Say Good Run or Happy Running.
  19. Walking is fine for a shorter duration but come back to your running. If not keep walking.
