Alex D I am not new to running by any stretch! However after my car accident I am desperate to get running again! Not there yet but this will be the first distance to work towards!
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.
“I've done this before, but this was a good challenge to actually get me BACK into running... The hardest part of getting in shape for me is that when I start to see improvements I get cocky and think I can take it down a notch... Then all of a sudden I'm hardly working out at all, ending up losing the same 5-10 pounds. And I KNOW how bad that is for my body!! GEEZ!! ”

Dave W I DID IT !! and a little bit more 2.1km non-stop ! ;-)
Simply decided "today I am going to do it, even if I pass out of throw up" - Thankfully neither of these things happened !
Dave W Just couldn't do much more than 1kms today, and have only run 1mile in one go once before. I will be really focussing on this stage of my training next week !

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!
