A recent post by Bull from Life in the Fast Lane made me really want to start running. There is an appeal to knowing your body that well. I've always hated running, since I was a young kid. I'm much more of a sport-playing type. Running is too much time spent by myself, inside my head. Maybe that's just what I need!
I'm going to be 30 soon (well someday!) and I decided that 30 would be a good age to finally be proud of myself. If I can somehow start to enjoy running, I think that would be something to be extremely proud of. For me, at least.
I've heard of a program where you run for 1 minute and walk for 3 (actually you could run and then sit for a while, if your fitness level is that poor) but I don't know what it's called. And is there more to it than that? And at what point to you increase your running time? And is that the best way to start?
