I've decided that I need to lose some weight and have heard the best way to do so is to run because "you never see a fat runner". Someone told me that and I can agree with it, so I'm giving it a shot. I found an 8 week walk/run program to help get my body acclimated with running.
For three non-consecutive days during the week:
Week One: Walk for 6 minutes, easy-paced jog for 1 minute. Repeat three times.
Week Two: Walk for 5 minutes, jog for 2 minutes. Repeat 3x
Week Three: Walk 3 min, jog for 4. Repeat 4x.
Week Four: Walk 2 min, jog for 5. Repeat 4x.
Week Five: Walk 2 min, jog 8. Repeat 3x.
Week Six: Walk 2 min, jog 9. Repeat 3x
Week Seven: Walk 1 min, jog 11. Repeat 3x.
Week Eight: Walk for 5, run 20, walk 5.
Week Nine: Run 30 min.
Does this sound like a pretty good plan? Do any runners on the site have any additional advice and tips to help me along the way? Hopefully this will inspire others to get more active alongside myself.
