So, in my Runner’s World Complete Book of Women’s Running, the author says in her 6-week schedule for getting up to a 30 minute run: Week 4. Walk a few minutes to begin, then run for 7 minutes, walk until rested, run for 7 minutes, walk until the 30 minute mark.
Well, it’s MONTH 4 for me, and I just decided (after dashing home the other day–and I’m still not feeling well) that I would try it. I walked for 8 minutes, ran for 7.5 minutes, walked for 2 minutes, ran for 7.5 minutes, then walked home for a total of 31.5 minutes.
Run time: 15 minutes
Walk time: 16.5 minutes
This is silly, but I cannot believe how sore I was — haha! Silly me! I took a hot bath afterward.
P.S. This look interesting! It connects to a video by Runner’s World.
