I will change, I promise.



My running/everyday basic workout routine.

I started this crazy insane eight week running and basic everyday workout in January and I need to get back into it. This is what I plan to do everyday, even if I do nothing else. This is just a base, I will be doing plenty of different workouts on top of this. But just let me share with you what I do everyday when it comes to fitness. I’m by no means a fitness expert, nor will I probably ever be. This is just what has worked for me and I thought that I would share it with everyone.

I start with my eight week running plan. This plan is absolutely amazing for people like me, who hate running but need to work on their running skills. It slowly builds up your endurance until you’re a pro runner. I enjoy it because it’s not too much right away, but you are definitely working. The suggested amount of times to do each week are in the descriptions, but ultimately doing it more often isn’t going to hurt (it’s probably better).

Week one: Walk for six minutes, then jog at an easy pace for one minute. Repeat three times. Aim for three sessions with that same sequence for week one.

Week two: Walk for five minutes, then jog for two minutes. Repeat three times. Aim to do three sessions in week two.

Week three: Walk for three minutes, then jog for four minutes. Repeat four times. Aim for three sessions in week three.

Week four: Walk for two minutes, then jog for five minutes. Repeat four times. Shoot for three of those sessions in week four.

Week five: Walk for two minutes, then jog for eight minutes. Repeat three times. Do three of those sessions in week five.

Week six: Walk for two minutes, then jog for nine minutes. Repeat three times. Try to do three sessions for week six.

Week seven: Walk for one minute, then jog for 11 minutes. Repeat three times. Do three sessions this week.

Week eight: Congratulations on making it to week eight! For your first run this week, try walking for five minutes to begin and end the workout, and run for 20 minutes in between. By the end of the week, try to run for 30 minutes without stopping.

I thus have not made it to week eight yet, but I definitely plan on it! Running is a really great cardio so being able to run like that would be a dream come true for me. I also made a ‘strength training’ plan to go along with the running plan. It is a little slow in the beginning, but I wanted to slowly work up to something, and I knew I was going to be doing other strength training so I didn’t want to go too hard on myself.
