Hal on his Beginning Runner’s Guide – 30/30 Plan Program

Introduction: Running continues to grow in popularity. More and more people are taking up the sport. More people are running 5K races. More are running marathons. An even larger number simply run for fitness and never go near a starting line, or win a race T-shirt.

There are many good reasons. Running is simple and inexpensive. It’s a good way to lose weight. It makes you feel good. Running is good for your health. You’ll look better and have more energy if you learn to run.

Many people ask questions about beginning to run on my online forums. They want to know how to start running. They want a training program. They want information about shoes and equipment. They worry about sore muscles.

Every runner experiences what might be described as “Start-Up” problems. Many have “Restart” problems. Former runners (who stopped, for one reason or another) want to get back to their old running routines. They too need help.

Here’s a simple 30/30 plan to get you going, featuring 30 minutes of exercise for the first 30 days. It is a routine similar to one that the late Chuck Cornett, a coach from Orange Park, Florida, used with beginning runners.

1. Walk out the door and go 15 minutes in one direction, turn around, and return 15 minutes to where you started: 30 minutes total.

2. For the first 10 minutes of your workout, it is obligatory that you walk: No running!

3. For the last 5 minutes of your workout, it is obligatory that you walk: Again, no running!

4. During the middle 15 minutes of the workout, you are free to jog or run–as long as you do so easily and do not push yourself.

5. Here’s how to run during those middle 15 minutes: Jog for 30 seconds, walk until you are recovered, jog 30 seconds again. Jog, walk. Jog, walk. Jog, walk.

6. Once comfortable jogging and walking, adapt a 30/30 pattern: jogging 30 seconds, walking 30 seconds, etc.

Follow this 30/30 pattern for 30 days. If you train continuously (every day), you can complete this stage in a month. If you train only every other day, it will take you two months, a 30/60 plan. Do what your body tells you. Everyone is different in their ability to adapt to exercise. When you’re beginning, it is better to do too little than too much.

If you continue this 30/30 routine for 30 days, you will finish the month able to cover between one and two miles walking and jogging. You are now ready to progress to the next stage of your training as a beginning runner. For the next step upward in training as a runner, check out my Novice 5K program.

A lot of people look at me like I’m crazy when I tell people my friend James brings in experts every week for up to $500 an hour in his FR-EE group.
And rightly so…
Why on earth would he bring in experts in Google, Facebook, YouTube, Productivity, Email marketing and more and pay hundreds of dollars for a fr-ee group?
Simple…
He actually gives a crap.
And he wants you to succeed.
We’ve both been where you are not too long ago.
We know what it’s like…
James got scammed out of $3,000 when he first started.
He wanted to quit more times than he could count.
He banged my head against a computer screen for more than 6 months before I made my first commission.
And then it happened.
His first commission.
Let’s face it, most people would quit.
Most people DO quit way before 6 months.
And that’s what James is aiming to fix with this new system and training.
While the other so called gurus out there charge thousands for overpriced hype.
He wants to over deliver and give you massive value at no cost to you because he truly wants to help.
Plus, if he give you so much amazing stuff on the front end, and help you get results…
You’ll hopefully buy his paid stuff later! (Full transparency)
You may know his story of suicide to success.
And if you do, you know where his heart is and why he truly wants to help.
I get it, you’re sceptical.
You think you’ve seen it all before.
Well you’re wrong.
There is still hope.
If James can become a top affiliate within one year of trying to take his own life.
Push his boundaries and become a 7 figure earner, speaker and multiple award winning affiliate.
You can do anything.
But it’s gonna be 100x easier with our guidance and support…

Get your fr-ee system now and reap the benefits of these highly paid experts today.
Kind regards,
YOUR NAME
P.S Tik Tok masters, YouTube super stars. 7, 8 and 9 figure entrepreneurs have made cameo appearances.
Just the group alone is worth more than what most people charge for.
