Wow! I think I finally found other people who are in the same situation as me...
So when is the best time to walk/run? Early morning, afternoon or towards the evening? Or should I just listen to my body and go when I get the urge?
Currently I try to keep my other training constant... I'm like clockwork. Gym from 6pm - 8pm, 4-5 times a week. Doing some CV at the gym helps me to rest more peacefully... but does this apply for running too?
I'm one of those people who don't sleep well at night unless i'm totally tired, then i sleep like a log for 6 hours. Then the sunlight wakes me up!
Thanks for all your gr8t advice. 30 mins of brisk walking is as close to running as i get but i hope with your support i'll get more into it - soon!
From the sounds of it all... I get the feeling that a little bit of walking is OK (in the pass, i'd always thought if walking the lazy mans run... :D Guess i was wrong.
FYI: i'm 28yrs old and don't have a family yet! I've just left uni, i'm looking for work. I do currently workout, i spend about 10mins on a rowing machine... normally after about 5 mins in to it, I cease to feel my arms :)
Hi all... It's been almost 4 months since I started to excercise on a regular basis. So far I've been brisk walking for about 25 - 30 mins, on average i cover about 3km per day, I feel quiet confident in doing this on a day to day basis but it's not running.
The biggest question is... How do I get into running from here? I guess I need to gain some more confidance and get over this 'Running is hard! Phobia' - I'm sure all those who start running know exactly what i mean... :(
Last week I tried for a short run and found myself to be all outta shape, feeling well and truly unhealthy ...ouch!! >:(
Would it be worth my while getting someone to run with me? If so how?
P.S I live in the Greater Manchester Area nr Disbury...
