I have no idea whether or not this is/was authentic or endorsed by the Vancouver Sun, but let me tell you, it works! I used this myself to go from never running unless something was chasing me to doing 5- and 10-k races, and more importantly I did it without injury. It’s a very safe, slow training plan, just the thing for someone only starting out. And of course, the best thing about running is, it doesn’t take a million years to show the benefits. It burns calories, it changes your muscles, it boosts your metabolism, and it makes you feel great!
…once it’s over!
Frankly, running bores the heck out of me, but it’s good for a body and it takes a lot less time than sitting on the sofa arguing with yourself about whether or not you should go to the gym. So if you’ve got a good pair of shoes and whatever supportive undergarmenture you require, you might as well get a checkup and then start on this.
