Hi - Can anyone put me right on a training question. I am running very slowly due to a weight problem which I am currently trying to fix (i.e. Weight Watchers). The books say you should be able to carry on a conversation whilst running otherwise you are working too hard for your body. I cannot run at all and talk - I can walk briskly and carry on a somewhat stilted conversation but if I start running I cannot do that. Do you think I should just brisk walk on my four times a week schedule - does anyone know how long it would take to then begin running? I am so confused and would welcome peoples thoughts. I am currently walking and running for two mins each for forty minutes.
