running again - a simple schedule -

March 15th, 2010  Tagged , ,

I started running again last week for the first time.
have been walking a lot, but wanted to take my time before running. My physiotherapist gave me a schedule where I have to take it slow. But it gives such a good feeling to run again. Even though it is only for a limited amount of time.
The schedule starts as follows :

day 1: repeat 10-12 times : 1 minute run, 1 minute walk
day 2: repeat 5-6 times : 2 minute run, 2 minute walk
day 3: repeat 5 times : 3 minute run, 3 minute walk

in between the exercising days, take at least one day of rest. After the third day, rest for 2 days.

I will post the rest of the schedule later this week.
