Give me 8 songs, your choice, and let’s get stronger & fitter together.
A great one for beginners like me, to work up the stamina and strength to keep moving for 30 minutes a day, 5-6 days a week.
5 weeks ago, I couldn’t jog on my rebounder (mini trampoline) for more than 3 minutes at a time. Much sadness. Before the end of 2011, I set a goal that it’s put up or shut up - can’t have a flabby stomach, be out of breath and magically get fit without effort.
I started pushing myself to keep going for 5 minutes, then 8 minutes. Then I picked 3 songs on my iPhone and ran until those songs finished.
Every few days, I’d pick a new song which added another 3 minutes.
Today was my first day running for 32 minutes straight and it makes me proud :) I finished - not in a pile on the floor - but happy and smiling. My next goals are 35, 38 and 45 minutes. I still consider myself a beginner, but the progress is evident just by looking at my playlist :)
So to anyone who is at the beginning and wants a place to start - start with 3 songs (or even 1 or 2) and GO FOR IT. Choose your medicine - running, jogging, rebounding, skating, bike riding, swimming … Just get moving. It starts today!
