I need to up my cardio, and im getting tired of the stationary bike.
ive been switching between HIIT and the slow but long bouts of cardio.
but i REALLY want to start running / jogging, whatever, i saw a guy and a girl doing this tonight and it inspired me, ive always wanted to but this really sparked something in me.
and here i am, i have tonnes of magazines / books for fitness with cardio plans in them and what not, but what im looking for is real world experience, what has worked for you and others.
i just dont know where to start, i went runnin a while ago but i didnt do to well and got discouraged.
but i REALLY wanna do this now, no matter what it takes.
i just need a plan to build myself up and make sure im making progress towards becoming faster + having more endurance to run farther.
thats my ultimate goal, to be able to run for a significant ammount of time at a significant pace, but i need a routine to build me up.
What should i start off doing?
running as long and as fast as i can, and each day trying to beat that time / distance?
or go for a long distance at a slower pace?
or a shorter distance at a faster pace?
im lost, lol.
and what would be better, running around on the sidewalk at night, or around the track at my old high school? or on a treadmill at the gym?
which should i use first? sidewalk, track, or tradmill, while im building myself up?
thanks for any replies this may get, if this has been done to the death please form a line behind me with torches and pitch forks in a lynch mob fashion, poke me in the ass with a pitch fork, then chase me around town, maybe itll help.
