Like to walk, but would love to run? Read this!

Filed under: ,

I'm a walker who dreams of being a runner, so when Kelly over at That's Fit wrote this post, it caught my eye! She's got three awesome suggestions for ramping up your walking routine to ease yourself into running, including adding short increments of running to your daily walk, picking a landmark and running to it (then walking again until you're ready to pick another landmark), or using music to help you pick up the pace. When I'm ready to try running, I'm definitely going to use one of these suggestions!

Walking is great exercise, especially for those who have health problems or have been sedentary for a long time. It's perfectly good exercise on it's own, so if you're a walker, don't feel like you ever have to pick up the pace and learn to run, but if your doctor agrees and you want to try it, check out Kelly's post to learn how or visit my favorite learn-to-run website, the Couch-to-5K Running plan.
