Run 1 mile without walking

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.

“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!! ”

Alex D Run 1 mile without walking Challenge

Contributorgold 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!

Oh hun, sorry to hear this happened, have not been around TS at all. Each step and stretch brings you closer, you'll get it done (but you knew that anyway), so hey! Just a little support along the way xx

Thanks Vylisa! I am getting better slowly, walked a couple of miles this afternoon. Trying to keep a bit active - can't wait to be back to normal. Getting there - I will be fine I am sure thanks! Hope all is well with you and yours :) xx
