For the past five weeks, I’ve experimented with a training schedule that’s entirely new to me, with great success. It’s simple:
- Run every day.
- Start with just 20 minutes each day.
- Each week, increase the length of the daily run by 10 minutes.
- Do less when you need to, but not more.
(So far I’ve used Rule #4 only twice, running for half an hour on days when I should have run 50 and 60 minutes. It was largely due to time constraints, but I think that rest did me well.)
