Day Two - and you didn't think it could get any worse...

Once upon a time, I lived with a rugby player. He was, and remains to this day, a machine. He seems a logical person to ask for help.

First response was "drop out", and the word "goon" was also bandied around. Harsh, but possibly fair. When I said that wasn't going to happen, he came up with the following...

try and run for 5 mins non stop tomorrow, then 7 the next day, then 10 the next day, then take a day off, then do 10 again. Then try 11, then try 12, then try 13 then rest.

1) Train EVERY day
2) Rest 1 out of 3, but stretch and walk
3) Increase the distance/constant running time every time (even if only 30 seconds)
4) Eat decent amounts
6) Lots of rest

... or rest 1 out of 4 if you are feeling up to it later on

So in other words:

1) Wave goodbye to a social life/dress sense/your reputation as a sensible person (well, kinda)

2) I say you get a day off, but that's not strictly true. If there's no rest for the wicked, this must make me as wicked as the pre-loved up Simon Cowell. But without the high waistband.

3) When your lungs feel like they may burst, do MORE!!!

4) Eat. Remember that food stuff? It's helpful.

5)Drink. Piss like a horse but love the skin improvement which you will then sweat through.

6) Sleep. Go on, change the habit of a lifetime...

Oh dear.

Good news though - tomorrow, SHOE SHOPPING!!! xxx
