Here’s the schedule for Week 3:
Monday: Run 2 minutes, Walk 2 minutes 7 times with a 5 minute warm-up and cool-down
Tuesday: Crosstrain – I will probably do yoga this week
Wednesday: Run 2 minutes, Walk 2 minutes 7 times with a 5 minute warm-up and cool-down
Friday: Crosstrain – Yoga again
Saturday: Run 4 miles – Run 2 minutes, Walk 2 Minutes
Week 2 recap: The running was great. I ended up doing the 3 mile run on Sunday instead of Saturday but I fit in 14 sets and ran a little over the 3 mile mark. My pace keeps improving and I will strive to get under the 13 minute average mile next week. Considering that 1/3 of my runs are walking right now, I am extremely happy with that pace!
Cross training did not go as well. Between starting a new job, getting ready for back to school and not sleeping a few nights, I skipped every cross training day! That’s OK though because you are allowed to have priorities other than exercise sometimes! Hopefully next week will be more consistent.
Way to Go! I like the way you give yourself time for exercise but if there is a conflict and you can’t exercise that day, it is ok.
