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?
