Not only did I stumble upon this site somewhere on the web (can't remember), but my sister also sent me the link. Geez!
So 5 steps, eh?
Step 1: Drop the "jogging myth"
Jogging does count as running! Jogging is running!
Step 2: Slow down
Run (jog) at a comfortable pace so you don't get tired. This will help reduce the lactic acid build up in your muscles that causes soreness.
Step 3: Listen to your body
You want to maintain a certain heart rate. So pay attention to your breathing. Listen to your heart. How's your vision?
Step 4: Become a fat burner, not a sugar burner
You want to burn fat, slowly. Sugar burns up quickly. Imagine lighting a match, sugar is the head that flares up then dies. Fat is more like burning coal, slowly. Become a fat burner by consuming more good fats and less sugar.
Step 5: Believe!
If you truly believe you can do it, you will!
So who's ready to run a marathon???
Ok, maybe a 5k...?
