‘ I’M TOO UN­FIT’

Runner's World (UK) - - New Runners -

Our First Mile plan is far cry from the ‘No pain, No gain’ mantra beloved of old-school PE teach­ers. This is a grad­ual jour­ney in which each step builds only a lit­tle on the last. It’s all gain, no pain. Wor­ried you’ll be worn out? A re­view of 70 stud­ies, pub­lished in Psy­cho­log­i­cal Bul­letin, con­cluded that ex­er­cise boosts en­ergy lev­els and re­duces feel­ings of fa­tigue. But don’t even think about run­ning non-stop on your first few out­ings – this is some­thing to work up to. Change won’t come overnight, but if you stay com­mit­ted you’ll see great changes over the next few weeks.
