Questions and Answers
Q: With my job and family responsibilities,
I don't have big chunks of time to use for exercise.
Is it worth it to run/exercise for just short amounts
Yes, especially if you can grab a couple of exercise
times a day. You can't go wrong, no matter how little
time you have to exercise. You can boost your overall
fitness with only 10 or 20 minutes of running a day....
lowering your heart rate, increasing your breathing
capacity and increasing your endurance. For example,
for a quick 10 minute run, start by jogging easily
for a minute, then steadily increase your speed until
you are doing your maximum by eight minutes. Then
ease off for the last minute, ending with walking.
Give it a try.
