Since New Year Cristiano has been running weekly and yesterday I finally decided I should join him. So today I went running for the first time and I am just completely exhausted now. I haven’t done any exercising or sport since August 2006, so I’m really glad I’ve started doing something again.
Even though I haven’t exercised for so long, I haven’t really gained weight and am certainly not chubby or anything like that. Hell, although I say so myself, I still look good! No, the main reason I wanted to sport again is because I don’t feel that healthy at the moment. The past year felt as a real low point for me; I think I’ve never been as many times sick in one year as the past one. It feels like I need to get back into shape again.
So, I’ve started the same schedule as Cristiano is following, which came from this website. I’ll be running 3 times a week and build it up gradually over the course of 12 weeks, until I can run 15 minutes straight. I started this week with 5 times 1 minute running and 2 minutes walking. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but at the end of it today I was completely knackered. I’ll keep you guys up to date with what I’m doing; keeps me motivated to keep it up.
