I am a great believer in gradualism, both in weight loss and in building fitness.
When I started running 25 years ago my first run/walk was 30 seconds run/4:30 walk. After a week of that I added 15 seconds to the run and reduced the walk accordingly. It took 6 months to run my first 5K (30:51) As they say, you never forget your first "time".
I better you never met anyone more gradual than me. Fortunately, I'm very patient.
The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.
