David B Completed for the first time on March 25 (1.65 km)
This is for those of you looking to get into running for the first time. Running your first mile is a big deal. First figure out where you have to run to to complete your mile. Then I suggest you run it very slow (most people when they first start running sprint for a half a block and can't imagine how anyone makes the mile...ans we DON"T sprint the mile. Slow and steady wins this race.
Run 1 mile without walking Challenge rules
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“This one is really cool; at least try to push yourself when you run. I've always been athletic; but running is a mental task. I've always at least boosted my workouts by blasting through a mile first then jogging then pushing on. I can run one mile or more initially but being able to run none stop will boost your caloric burnout. Be encouraged!!. It can be overwhelming so start small but push yourself everyday to achieve small goals to complete the ultimate goal.”

Susan B The fist 500 meters of running is always my worst. after that I usually have to stop to catch my breath. It is also my slowest part of my workout.
Gregory C I came a bit closer to doing this today at the park, I only walked twice. Hopefully tomorrow is the day I do the first mile of the Cross Country course without walking :)
Gregory C Hoping to do this over the weekend at my former high school's track. I've done this before but I rather wait until I can do it again before I say I've completed the challenge.
Lena C encouraged this.
Patrick D I have moved into intermediate in Tai Chi in the last month, after a few months of enjoyment of videos and taking a few classes
Lucas M Technically I did this, but I had to stop for 20 to 30 seconds to let a sprinkler's spray get off the path I was running. I didn't walk, but I want to only mark this off if I've run the entire time without stopping.

Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
