  1. ummm…question… can you run FOUR miles right now???
    it will probably take 40 minutes, or close to it.
    i would recommend starting off and timing yourself.
    run for 15 minutes teh first day (or 20, or 10, depending on how you feel…) and increase by time instead of miles.
    it will be easier on your body and you will be more likely to stick with it.
    if you want to walk before or after your running, that’s great…just don’t overdo the running at the beginning.
    just a thought from your friendly personal trainer.

    happy exercising!!

  2. WE CAN BE WORKOUT BUDDIES!!! ok, not that I’m an expert, but here’s what I’ve learned. Biggest mistake women make-high reps., low weight…we need high weight and lower reps. to lose wt. and body fat…we need interval training on the treadmill, stepper, etc. I found an interval training sched. on Fitness.com I tried it on the treadmill last night for the 1st time, and it is an “ass” kicker…and it’s designed for beginners. Good luck with your workouts and keep at it!!!

  3. There must be something in the air! I’m planning on starting my new plan this weekend (payday is Friday and my pantry is not prepped for this).

    I’m also trying to find an exercise regime that I like and that will be condusive to losing weight. My doctor recommended yoga and/or pilates to help build my tummy muscles after the c-section. We are both hoping to “find” the money to join a gym.

    I wish I was close by, like Tammy, so we could be workout buddies. Lucky you to have someone!
