    Anyone have tips for jog/walk combo?

    Haven't jogged in the street ever.

    Last time I jogged was on a treadmill about 7 years ago and had no problems

    Now that I've lost 45 pounds and reached a plateau, I'm thinking of jogging/walking combo. Any tips?

    Find a place or places you feel comfortable jogging. If you enjoy listening to books or music, bring that with you. If you don't listen to anything, just enjoy the outdoors and/or your thoughts.

    So I tried doing it today. Not what I expected.

    The walking is fine, can do over an hour but I honestly thought I'd able to jog for about five minutes straight.

    After about a minute, I was done.

    Not really out of breath, but couldn't continue.

    I did like five different one minute jogs over 75 minutes.

    Any ideas?

    Increase it over time. Slowly. If you force it you'll only injure yourself.

    start with 2 minutes of walking and jog for 30 seconds (you can mix in 15s sprints). and as you get better obviously your run time will increase.

    An important thing to keep in my mind is you need to slowly transition into jogging. Certain muscles and joints that are stressed by jogging need to be slowly strengthened and built up for you to jog for longer periods of time. Not to mention, your cardiovascular system will benefit from slow and steady progress.

    Get a jump rope. Jump for as long as you can and then rest until you gt your breath back. Repeat as many times as you can. I started this a few years ago. At first I could only jump for about 30 seconds . I got up to doing 2 minutes of jumping with a 30 second rest, 35 times. The fat melts away.

    Seriously buy an apple watch or other tacking device. Shows you current pace, how far you've gone, all types of stuff. Great motivational and tracking tool.

    So if you walk 3 miles today at a 15 minute split, you know you should try and do 3.1 at 14'50" the next day. Has helped me tremendously. (had surgery in March)
