Don’t Run Before You Can Walk

Finally the sun is shining (well in my town at least!) and it’s the time of year when people actually start thinking about getting fitter for the summer. Yesterday I ventured out in my car to do a spot of DIY shopping, and was stunned and pleased to say that I saw so many joggers out there. It was so encouraging and lovely to see people making the most of the good weather. But the forecast is that the weather may not stay like that for the rest of the week, and I wondered how enthusiastic some of these joggers would be in the rain. You see a lot of people try to run before they can walk. They take on so much on board when committing to exercise that after a while, they just give up. So pause for thought here.

Start off slow. Don’t go throwing yourself into the deep end as this will not only result in you getting fatigued and demotivated  but it could also result in a higher risk of injury. So instead, build up your exercise levels slowly. Perhaps start with doing some form of activity once a week for 20-30 minutes. After three weeks, do the same activity for the same duration twice a week. By doing this you’re much more likely to stick to your regime and make it a lifestyle. Sometimes it really is good to take it slow, and this is one of them. 🙂

    That is fab advice! Building up exercise slowly definitely works in the long run, it just becomes part of your normal routine. 🙂
