Winter used to be hibernation time for me. Anything active I may have done during the summer would be thrown aside as I stayed indoors and steadily packed the pounds on.
There's all too many reasons to stay indoors at this time of year. It's often cold, wet and dark, so those of us in the routine of winter runs are doing well to maintain our exercise.
Yet when you run for a minute at a time in the first week it seems so unlikely that at some point in the near future you'll be running non-stop for 30. However the plan is well-designed and if you put your faith in it and get yourself into the habit you can do it. I'm sure we all have days of thinking 'nuts to this, I'm staying indoors' but if you skip a day you can always get out the next day.
To anyone starting out or midway through the plan keep at it, listen to people on this forum, take the advice and you will get there. And what's more, you'll feel all the better for it.
