A quick start might be the thing for you

Runner's World (UK) - - Warm-ups -

Run­ners are warned against go­ing off too fast be­cause of the slow­down later on – but the strat­egy could be just the ticket for new or less-fit run­ners, sug­gests a study from Iowa State Univer­sity, US. 2 Re­searchers split ex­er­cis­ers into two groups. One did a work­out that started easy and grad­u­ally got harder; the other started tough and eased off, but the over­all in­ten­sity was the same in each case. The de­creas­ing-in­ten­sity group rated their en­joy­ment dur­ing and af­ter the work­out more highly and were more pos­i­tive about how much they’d en­joy fu­ture work­outs.
