8 minutes is a great start! I just finished the first week and found Day 1 absolutely horrible, but things had improved dramatically by the time I got to Day 3. Now I'm dreading my first two-minute jog tomorrow...
Good for youon the 8 minutess - I know certain health issues can be hurdles to overcome (I am a type 1 diabetic and often have had to interrupt physical activities because of low blood sugars - very FRUSTRATING). I am sure you'll be "back up to speed" in no time!
I could only go for eight minutes and had to stop (I'm asthmatic and it kicked in WAY too soon). I'm in worse shape than I thought.
Tomorrow will be just taking a normal walk, then I'll make another attempt Wednesday. I'm going to have to build up to getting started. I'm discouraged but I'm not giving up. I used to be able to do 5K in 30 minutes and I AM going to get back there again.
