Is jogging ok?

Why not buy my friend Lisa Jacksons book Running Made Easy and follow the beginners programme? That way you should not use more energy than you need and you will also be able to avoid any injury?


Final Time on Cambridge
Hi, hope you don't mind me jumping on the post, but thanks for the advice about the book Sam. I've just been walking briskly for 30 minutes every day for the past 3 weeks, and feel that I might be able to 'up the pace' a bit now without collapsing, but I do want to do it incrementally and safely.

Thanks again.

Gentle exercise is not a problem. I joined a gym and I do an hours work out every other day, and I'm really enjoying it. Its also great for toning, as I do not want to end up with saggy skin.
If you feel faint or dizzy then you know to slow down. x

Hi PennyJane,
After what happened to me on Monday I am warning everyone I see on here talking about exercise - see my post from Monday night - "Exercise didn't go too well".
Was very scary. I felt like I had loads of energy too, but once you have used that up, there is no reserve if you're living on 5-800 cals a day.
Take care. x

I run/walk most days for about 30mins and was doing it before cd too! At one point though I did feel really horrid and started walking with a friend instead. I also walk the dog 2 + miles a day too lol!! but if your body has been used to doing it I can;t see why it would be a problem, just take care and listen to your body! (I ran 50 mins tonight go me!!)
