I’d like to say that I’ve taken up running but the honest truth is that I am LEARNING to how to run. When I had a trainer that I worked with twice a week, I could do some magical things with his push and motivation. When he asked me what my top 3 goals were, number 1 has always been to run. He gave me some tips that I’ve been putting back into practice. For example, when I first started with him I would walk on an incline on the treadmill for 45 seconds and then kick up the speed (decrease the incline) and jog for 15 seconds. Well I’ve kicked that up a notch. Now what I do is walk on an incline for 4 minutes and run for the 5th minute. My first accomplishment is that I’m not nearly as tired this week as I was last week.
Next week I want to kick it up…3 minutes walking and 2 minutes running.
Two months ago I finished my first 5k…walking…in 59 minutes. My new goal is to run an entire 5k. Wish me luck!
