The Doctor Says You Can Run Again. Now What? Part 2 — 2 Comments

  1. This post really resonated with me, Barbara. I have recently started running again, and am timing intervals too. Like you I am starting gradually. The most I have run so far is 14 minutes in two minute intervals with two minutes of walking in between. Slowly building up. I bought an interval time a couple of years ago, and quickly changed the setting from the beeps, to a vibrate. That doesn’t solve everything, but I find it not as jarring as the beeping.

    I totally resonate with your responses. I remember I have chosen to run because I WANT to do it. That helps me a lot when the timer buzzes before I am quite ready.

    • That’s wonderful to hear, Imogen! The beep is my only option, but I’ve learned to make it my servant, not my running overlord. Keep up the good work!
