The training plan we will follow is designed to get you to the point where you can run 30 minutes at a slow, relaxed pace. Research has shown that just 30 minutes (roughly 2 miles) a few days a week is enough to help you maintain many health markers: weight, cholesterol, insulin response, and blood pressure just to name a few. This is a progressive program where we will begin walking more than running, and gradually you will turn that walk into a run. Let’s get started!
I never used to run, I used to despise it to be honest. And then I gave it a chance and eventually fell in love. I am not saying you have to love or even like running, but at one time or another I am sure you have all desired to run that 1 mile without having to stop. If I am wrong, read no further. For those of you that are sick of being intimidated by the hills in Central Park or the treadmills at your gym, join me once a week to learn how to improve your strides.
