Can I Learn to Run?

September 23, 2018 — Leave a comment

This is a question that I gave to Google this morning.  When I was home visiting my Mom about a month ago I started a exercise routine of running & fast walking every other day.  I started because I didn’t want to gain weight when I was home from all the gingersnaps I knew I would eat.  Along with creamy fish chowder, lobster rolls and lemon pie.  I did by the way but only 3.  I started to really enjoy my outings.  Running was never my thing but I know it’s good exercise and great way to get the metabolism up.  And at over 50 that is super important.  My confession is that I haven’t learned to push myself to up my running distance.  I would like to learn to run more than 1 & 1/2 minutes at a time.  I do almost a race walk when I walk and can keep my peak heart rate up.  So isn’t that enough?  I sometimes think yes and then I also would like to really learn to run. At least to extend the running time.  So I’m going to try and use these tips from Daily Burn and see what happens.  I’ll keep you posted.
