      Way to go finishing Gravity!



      I'll probably finish tomorrow, too. I couldn't manage to do it in 30 days straight.

        Britt0 , travels are not the best to finish a program. I did the last two days when on holiday and I was glad that there were no jumps or high knees because I was in an apartment and I didn't want other people think that the building was collapsing.

          Welcome back

            Thank you, Gee

            Done today :
            1' (202) squat hold punches

            From walking to running : day 1 (included in a 5 km walk). I tried this program when on holiday but I failed miserably on day 6 and after a discussion and some advices from Mr. Octopus , Redline and xingyiquan I think I'll try the xingyiquan method ( Britt0 , if I well understood, that's what you did to increase your running skills)

            Sweat Generator : L3 with EC
            DD : 20 dragon push-ups, with EC (ouch, my abs ! )

              xingyiquan talked to me about running slowly in a way that clicked. When I first started running, I was definitely moving too fast, and I couldn't keep it up for very long. I started on a track, too, so I had other people passing me, which made me run faster. Once I started to slow down, focus on my breathing and rhythm and not worry about speed, it started to feel right. I can definitely 'rest' while jogging now.

              Along with this advice, I got a heart monitor, which actually helped me a lot with figuring out how much effort I was putting in. Keeping my heart rate below a certain threshold works really well for me. The non-technical way to gauge effort is whether you can carry on a conversation while running. However, I run alone, and I feel that talking to myself out loud might be a bit too much, even for me.

              One other thing. It feels really quite difficult at first. However, even if it won't feel like it for a month or so, you'll actually be making fast progress if you stick with the program and don't try to force things.

              Good luck!

                Britt0 , thanks to share your experience.

                I own a heart monitor but a sport bra + the belt for the monitor is uncomfortable. I walk (and now I'll run) with my dog so I could talk to her. (she is a very little chihuahua, she doesn't run too fast )

                    Way too hot to do some workout...
                    The past three day were hot too but I did manage to jog during 20', but today I just can sweat (without doing any exercise) and drink water. I'm dreaming of

                    Mr. Octopus , I'll do your unofficial challenge when the weather will be cooler.

                                Nice to see you back!
                                The distances you've walked are really impressive.
