When starting a running program, start your first few runs at a casual pace. Set a goal of twenty minutes your first time out. Don’t worry about distance – just keep moving. Alternate periods of running with walking breaks. Don’t run really fast and then crawl like a snail during your walking. Try to keep an even effort.
And don’t think that walking is cheating. Walking breaks actually allow you to increase the duration of your workout. Longer workouts burn more calories and increase your body’s physiological response to the workout. You will soon be able to run non-stop soon enough. Be Patient!!!
Start with three times a week to start and make the first ones easy. Running too hard to fast and doing it too often can only bring on an injury and a burn out.
Do it on a gradient.
Feel that walking is a better gradient for you. Well walking 6000 steps or more a day is the way to better health. Walking 10000 steps keeps you slim.
The Journal of American Medical Association agrees. This article tells about its ability to lower mortality. Although they do say 10,000 isn’t necessary. Its up to you.
There are pedometers by which you can measure how far you walk each day. If you just make sure you keep it up to the same amount each day and keep increasing that amount, you will enjoy a new level of fitness. You might even make a grid and find out what your average is each week and then strive to get more each week. We like the LifeStyles Digiwalker Tested by Consumer’s Union for accuracy.
