1. START BY WALKING…
Trying to run from the get go is a recipe for disaster.
As an overweight person, your body—especially the bones and cardiovascular system—wont be able to handle the demands of running.
In fact doing so will only lead to injuries and a premature setback.
Therefore, the wisest approach is to start walking beforehand.
And after you’ve acquired enough cardiovascular power and stamina, you could introduce some running into your workout.
You can accomplish this by following the Walk-Run-Walk (W-R-W) method.
This method is simple and straightforward.
And it will ease you into the sport of running without the risks of injury and burnout.
A simple W-R-W program may look like this:
During the first week, you only walk 3 to 5 times, 25-30 minutes for each session.
On the next week, you add 30-45 seconds of running with the walking intervals.
Repeat the pattern 4-5 times.
As you become more fit and stronger, make sure to add more running and shorten up the walking intervals until you’re able to run straight for 30-minute without much huffing and puffing.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
