The Gritdoctor’s Guide to make you less of a fat b!tch: Week 2

13 Jan

So, it’s Friday again (hooray!). That came around quickly…

Many of you will already be dreaming of after-work drinks,  late nights of dancing, lazy lie-ins and lovely long lunches down the pub. Fine. Good. All allowed in the grand scheme of things, and there’s nothing wrong with having a bit of fun to beat the January blues.

Others may be preparing for a slightly more jam-packed weekend – (fun) family visits, ferrying children around, cooking, cleaning and generally catching up on everything you didn’t manage to get done during the week. Also fine. Less fun perhaps, but fine all the same.

But don’t forget to factor a run or two into your precious weekend hours. These other activities are not an excuse. We’re onto Week 2 of our motivational videos now, and the Gritdoctor has plans for you. Yes you.

So watch the video, set your goals and go for a run. We promise by the end of the weekend you’ll be feeling very pleased with yourself.

    Whoa! Absolutely could not do a five minute jog after the first week. Only two minutes – though did that twice the first time and once the second time. Have had to revert to walking ( long strides) and there no way I could do a five minute jog three times a week. I am still motivated by the RFBR mantra but I need to go slower. Have lost inches from my tum and waist though, so thank you. For me the daily commitment walking/striding a circuit is more important than trying to upgrade to jogging/running at this stage.

      i’m not sure if you have read the book, but the idea is that week one only begins once you are able to confidently walk through your circuit quickly and feel ready to start running. 2 minutes is a great start, but i would recommend going back to just walking and building up your walking speed for a couple more weeks then start week 1 of the programme when you feel a bit fitter and leaner.

      walking is a brilliant start, and if you are committed to it, it wont be long before you can run for 5 minutes easily. i hope that helps. keep me posted! and best of luck…
