I Have a Plan

I was talking to Amy this past Sunday and she asked me if I have been running. When I replied with a "no," she got sort of quiet.

I imagine she wanted to ask me why. If I don't start running, and start running NOW, how do I plan on running ten whole miles in October?

I have a plan. It's pretty realistic. It starts with baby steps. But that's what I need. I am really out of shape.

The plan actually starts with walking. Last week, I had to walk every other day (a total of three days) for 30 minutes at a moderate pace. This week, I have to walk on four separate days for 30 minutes at a moderate pace. Next week, the pace speeds up. The week after that, I do run/walks. And so on.

It may not sound like much, but I can already tell a difference. I am getting ready, I'm just taking baby steps. But everyone has to start somewhere, right?

  1. She "got sort of quiet" definitely brought on the LOLs! :-) I think baby steps are fine, too, that way you don't get discouraged and quit altogether. I'll have to tell you offline about (what's his nickname?)'s running regimen and how much he's improved since he started.


Please say something...
