Running: The Answer to My Fitness Goals?
So, I think I figured out a way to stay interested in being fit: Running.
It's been a long time since I've run. I used to run cross country in high school (since you all know how old I am, you can do the math), and I tried for a few weeks this past summer, but I haven't run consistently in forever.
The cool thing about running is that it's one of the few sports that you can pick up in adulthood and still compete.
So I started running today. I'm following the Runner's World 8-week Beginning Runner's Training Program. I ran on the treadmill for 1 minute then walked for 2 minutes, over and over for a total of 30 minutes. It felt great to run again... not as hard as I expected.
