Map out a mile, whether it be from your house or at a track.
Run the mile and time yourself. The goal is to run a COMFORTABLE mile, not a mile that is the fastest that you can go. If you feel like you ran too fast, you did!
Take a break. Walk around for about 5 minutes or so. Then, run that mile again as a comfortable mile. If you need to walk in the mile that is fine! Just allow yourself to only walk for one minute and then start running again. You can do this- we have only been allowing one minute walks anyways.
More to come later- right now, I need to get back to work!
