I also put in a 1/4 mile at 5MPH (about 12:00 MM). Once I made it to 2.25 miles I was able to calm things down and put in a steady 3/4 mile at a 4.5 MPH pace.
Tonight was the first night that I've actually done one of the sessions on the Yoga DVD!!
I started off with getting in a warm up walk/run on the treadmill-o-doom. 1/4 mile walk, 1 mile run, with a 1/4 mile walk cool down.
Then I went on to the video. It was a 32 minute routine. They have 3 people in the video and I can tell you, I'm not even as flexible as their old fat inflexible guy in the video!
As a reminder, here is a link to the DVD that I bought: Yoga For Beginners : The Essential Beginner Yoga Guide For Runners, Walkers & Desk Jockeys (2009)
Overall I think it was a good start.
Thanks for Reading! Regards,
& Faster for 2013!
