FIRST WEEK

Take a brisk walk of one mile, breaking into 50- or 100-yard jogs when you feel like it. Walk at a steady pace in between the jogs but never force yourself. Fitness is gained by steady work. You only end up with injuries and anguish when you push too hard. Take a look around you and enjoy your surroundings. Explore the feeling of your body in motion and discover what it feels like to be you.
