Lots of people ask me this ONE question when they want to learn to run...
"How long should I be walking before running?"
There is an easy answer to this if you're in pretty good shape already or live an active lifestyle.
Usually one week of good walking will get your body ready to start the run/walk...
But what happens if you are out of shape, overweight and have a very low activity level?
Find out in this video!

Great question with a wonderful answer! I ran years ago but now I walk...Hurt my knees a while back so either I walk or in cold weather, I'll use my elliptical. It's all good. You are such an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I would never just hit the pavement and start to run.. What you are saying makes perfect sense!ReplyDelete
Great post. You are answering questions that people will have that may stop them from trying if they don't get an answer. I like that you have them check in with how they are feeling. It's not a one answer fits all. This is great!ReplyDelete
Thank you Alexandra and you are also an inspiration!ReplyDelete

Sounds like good advice. I am unable to run due to foot and knee problems. Dealing with nerve damage in my feet has recently limited me on the walking as well.ReplyDelete
