Day 001 - Day 1: Don't run yet!

30-minute walk        Training via ActiveMail

FOR TODAY'S WORKOUT, WALK FOR 30 MINUTES: Welcome to your marathon training program! You've taken on a big challenge, and we applaud you for it. We're also here to make sure you succeed. For the first few weeks, you'll be doing more walking than running, increasing the amount you run, and the miles on your "long run" days, gradually over the next 26 weeks. For now, keep the intensity moderate; you should be able to carry on a conversation with your training partner. It's okay if you have to take deep breaths between sentences, but you shouldn't be huffing and puffing between every word.
