Running Schedule Week 1

Hey you! Yes, I’m talking to you. Did you try that treadmill workout I posted last week? How did it go? Let me know :)

This schedule is designed for those who are just getting started or for those who can’t remember the last time you ran. This is a combination of running, walking and resting to help reduce the risk of injury, fatigue, and stress. Remember we want you all to have fun and enjoy the run, so walk and run at your own pace.

Monday: Run/Walk for 30 minutes

Tuesday: Walk for 30 minutes

Wednesday: Run/Walk for 30 minutes

Thursday: Walk for 30 minutes

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday:Run/Walk for 3 miles

Sunday: Rest Day

Keep in mind that the days that you are resting is also a good time to strength train with some weights to help build lean and tone muscle.Women don’t worry you WILL NOT…I repeat….WILL NOT get bulky or big. In fact using weights will help burn fat in those problem areas and help it tone and tighten up. To get big you have to eat big and that’s for body builder stuff and we aren’t going in that direction.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment.

Have a good Run!

Treadmill RockStar Workout

Taking extra precaution on your current weather condition is vital to being safe and getting the most out of your workout. If it’s hot, running outside should be done early in the morning or in the evening while it’s still cool out. If you have access to an air conditioned gym here is a great treadmill workout that will build endurance while giving you that high intensity training so that you burn calories throughout the day.

Start off by walking at a low to moderate pace (2.0-4.0) at in incline of 15-21. You will walk this “hill” for a quarter of a mile while trying not to hold on the whole time. So USE those ARMS!:)

After You have completed the uphill walk at 0.25 bring the incline back down to 0 and do a run for another quarter of a mile (5.0-8.0). Once you have reach 0.50 continue back to the walk uphill and repeat this whole thing for 1 to 2 miles.

Good luck and let me know how you did!!! I would love to hear feedback. Last but not least record the time you completed it in for your own record so you can keep track of your progression.
