Abstract or not?
The next question that we have to deal with is the psycho-emotional component of training. Any newcomer, being on the treadmill of the stadium, experiences, first of all, the psychological pressure of his own fantasies. It begins to seem to him that everyone present at the stadium is closely watching him, evaluating his clumsy running technique and taunting him. And if at this time it is really heard, someone’s flood of laughter, who has nothing to do with his person, taking fire on himself, the newly-minted runner enters into a state of shock and can leave the stadium’s racetrack forever without ever feeling a victory over his own laziness and filled with strength and elasticity.
To avoid this condition, beginners need a couple of times, before starting a workout, to visit a stadium or other place that they have chosen for training, to look at everything that happens there and with everyone who does what. And after you make sure that everyone in the stadium is busy solving their pressing problems, and absolutely no one needs you (unless of course you yourself want to meet someone or ask someone about something), you can safely start warming up on the treadmill of the stadium.
Run alone or with a friend?
Sometimes, especially women, to make it more fun, they come together with a friend or a small group (for example, a department). It’s good if your girlfriend or friend is experienced in the issue of training, this is still permissible, but if you meet two amateurs, you can put a “fat cross” on the training process. Otherwise, a vitally important and fascinating conversation on a global topic awaits you, and after an hour and a half, you, having previously agreed on the next meeting at the same place, already in your stadium, will go home with a deep sense of emotional satisfaction, forgetting about the needs of the mortal body.
In principle, and certainly this particular women’s university helps the beautiful half of the human race to live significantly longer than the male half of humanity. The conclusion suggests itself here: each person has his own level of preparedness, endurance, patience, and if you go out on a treadmill together, you will have to adapt to the pace of running a partner at the expense of your personality. This means that you need to run, either too fast, so as not to lag behind, or use your reserves to the full extent, so as not to offend your partner, and in either case the training will not be effective.
In addition, you will constantly “knock” your breath because, especially in women, there is no effect of silent contemplation of the surrounding space if they
are together, even while running. There is only one way out – train on your own, clearly tracking your internal state and the positive or negative influence of external social and natural factors, in exceptional cases you can run through the stadium to meet each other.

Quite often you have to see at the stadium, especially among young people training with headphones in their ears, I usually advise such people to listen to music at home – lying on a couch or sitting in an armchair, and in the stadium it is advisable to hear your heartbeat, birds singing and friendly greetings, and the advice of others.
It is necessary to pay attention to one negative factor – this is profanity. Today, like fifty years ago, boys gamble football, and people of a more mature age, as a rule, former athletes, also come to the stadium. Fighting this especially alone is not recommended. If there is no coach or mentor for the players, instead of practicing the technique and tactics of the game and fostering willpower, tolerance, ethics, and at least some kind of culture (you must admit that it’s physical, but still culture), the players bring up grief in themselves: intolerance, hostility, outright rudeness and other negatives. Looking at all this, you bitterly understand how far our football is from perfection, our fathers and even grandfathers also played football, but this was not the case, the players could see their conscience and team spirit. But the worst thing is not this, but the fact that others are trying not to notice this, and the reckoning for indifference will come.
In view of the foregoing, we proceed directly to the training. Where to begin? Start your workout with a run of ten or fifteen laps around the stadium, as you understand, calculating the mileage in the park area or along the shore of a reservoir will be much more difficult. And so, in a good, vigorous state of mind and body, you come to the place of training, having a chronometer with you to measure the running time and run a predetermined distance (after doing an easy warm-up of the main muscle groups involved in the dynamic load of your body). Try to work out and, if possible, show everything that you are capable of overcoming your chosen distance, for example, in a race of two kilometers (ten laps in a stadium), while you should not force your body at an unreasonably high pace.
