NukeLeeUs Runs

"slow is smooth, smooth is fast."- shooter

if you want to run your best, as fast and as long as you can, you first need to re-learn to move, as you did when you were a child. 

to start with, we are going to do it. together. each step of the way. one step at a time.

The plan here is not to make you run a marathon or an ultra-marathon but to get you folks started. From scratch. It is totally fine if you never end up running even a half marathon.

When it comes to health, running for 30-40 minutes is ample. After that, it's all about passion. And this is coming from a team that puts together La Ultra - The High, a 333km race in Leh-Ladakh. In any case, soon enough the running bug would have bitten you. 

Month One

Week One

  • Go for a 20-30 minute stroll.
  • Doesn't matter how slow that is.
  • You can go for a walk 4-6 times a week. Just have fun.
  • Check out those hot guys or gals, as your preference might be, or maybe the flowers, or the road.
  • Point being, just don't get your life stress along with you. Just be.
  • Enjoy. Be with yourself. Get to know yourself. 

Week Two

  • It could take you longer than a week to get here and that's fine. There is no need to rush.
  • Start with a gentle walk (you can talk in long sentences) for first 5 minutes, followed by 30 seconds only of a brisk walk (when you are only able to converse in 2-3 words).
  • Again gentle walk for 5 minutes. Repeat the same for 3-4 times.
  • Each time you walk gently, catch your breath and get ready for the 30 second brisk walk. 

Week Three

  • Now we are upping the ante.
  • After starting with a gentle walk for 4 minutes, now you walk briskly for whole 60 seconds.
  • Again repeat 3-4 times. 

Week Four

  • This week you start with a gentle walk for 3 minutes followed by 2 minute brisk walk.
  • Remind yourself to catch your breath when you walk slowly again.
  • Repeat 3-4 times again.
