Week 1 has you starting out running for 10 minutes straight, and then 15. No no no no no. I can't do it. I tried. I actually tried today, and got about 3 minutes in before I was wheezing so bad I thought I was going to die in my Mother-In-Law's office (where her treadmill is).
So, I've decided to add to this author's regimen, and add weeks 0.25 and 0.50.
Week 0.25 will consist of 2 minute and then 4 minute runs during the 6-day week.
Week 0.50 will consist of 5 minute and 8 minute runs during the 6-day week.
If after those 2 weeks I'm still not ready for this guy's book, well then I may consider another alternative. But I heard running is so good for your ENTIRE body. What else is out there that does such a complete workout? (That doesn't require any money?)
I'm giving myself a pat on the back for not automatically quitting this thing. Because I really DO want to get fit, and I really DO want to run..... I just can't. Not yet. So, my amending what I want to do into something I CAN do, I think that I can ease my mind and body into going with each other.
I will start on Sunday, so that my weeks won't get confused with the calendar. I'm half blonde, and easily get confused about my days. :-)
That's all for now, except for this:
I LOVE this acoustic version! <3 <3 <3
