When i first started off i was stretching for a good 5+ minutes then walking 500 metres then another 5minute stretch then i'd run

But after a long year of running almost every day/2nd day i now just warm up for 10minutes and go a light jog for 1km then increase speed all the way to my finish of circuit

Goodluck running is so fun when you get stuck into it :wink:

Thanks for that iricangi :) . I didnt make it out last Saturday, mainly due to me being in a bad head space but things are looking brighter this week so I have my fingers crossed.
I did manage a little jog while out on a walk last weekend so I guess thats a start :) .

I so have to be in the right mood before I go for a run. I usually run after work to use up the time i waste waiting for the bus home. Somedays are just bad days and I know i'm just going to let myself down and get disapointed in myself if I attempt a run, so I tell myself that I will just go for a brisk walk, sometimes i end up running and others I just walk. This way I still get exercise and I usually end up in a better mood after a bad day having got some fresh air and sun.

But little stints of jogging in a walk are the best way to get started, when i first started I would run for 30seconds and walk for 30, then you just extend the running bits and shortening the walks.

Good luck with it!

Ive been doing little bits here and there. I have found a track on my weekend walks and I break into a jog when I am away from the public eye :lol: , except for this morning when we had to run up a main road for shelter because of the rain :x .
