First timer!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 


This has been a lifelong goal. Although I was an athlete as child/teen; I never master long-distance running. 

Just finished week one and it was hard! I'm thinking I tried to up the speed too much.

I'm treadmill running. What speeds did any of you start at?

I started at 4 for the jog, and 3 for the walk.  At week 5 I started over jogging 5, walking 3....and for the longer times of running I do 4.5 to 5.  I just finished week 4. 

Ultimately speed comes later.  If you need to slow down to finish the running parts, then slow down.  There is no shame in that.  Also repeating weeks is totally fine to. :-)
