|How to Graduate from Walking to Running|
|Are you bored with walking but intimidated by running? Slowly add some running to your workout. For example, walk 4 or 5 minutes, and then run for 1 minute. Repeat the pattern several times. Once you feel more comfortable, try to increase from 1 minute of running to 2, and then from 2 to 3. Eventually you will be running much or all of the time.|
