Report Captain's Log: Week 1, Day 2 in Accountability Check-in Posted September 13, 2015 First off, after all you've been through, getting back into a running is a great idea. Running / exercise can improve mood, decrease stress, improve your body image over time - so many benefits! So congrats for taking responsiblity and getting out there! As far as the pace, starting slow is perfectly fine. Endurance has to come first. I'm only running 5 mph so speed is not the main thing - it will cause you to burn out and stop. Keep it up! Off to a great start!!
