"Think of jogging like going through a fast moving river... You just have to get across that river... Your life depends on it.

  Your second week of the 6 weeks of jogging is going to feel like getting across a fast moving river. You will struggle, you will want to give up, but you will trudge ahead and smash through the hardest part of the current. Once you've reached 4 weeks into the program, it's easier. You will be over half way across that imaginary river and the current will be weak. You are now a true runner and almost to the other side of the river! 

Are YOU Already active and can jog for 10 minutes?
 running goal is still to run 30 minutes!
This is how it will look:
  •  Run for 10 minutes / 1 minute break for 30 minutes.
  • Next week run for15 minutes / 1 minute break
  • The next week 20 minutes / 1 minute break
  • You should be able to run a full 30 minutes by the 4th week.
  • If not, keep increasing you time running by 5 minutes each week until you've reached 30 minutes.
 This program slowly weans you from the run/walk stage to full time running for 30 minutes. You may still need to do a short walk when you've reached the 30 minute stage.

There are people who race the run/walk way and even do marathons run/walking!
