My friend N and I are training for a 2 mile walk. I know I told you it was a 5K, it turns out the 5K is a runners only 5K, no walkers allowed. They do have a walking part that is 2 miles. Our walk is on 9/15/12.
I came up with this training schedule for those of us that get winded walking to the car or up a flight of stairs. We started yesterday, but you can start now. I'm going to give you one week at a time, posted on Sunday and through out the week I'm going to give you Cubicle Challenges.
A Cubicle Challenge (we work in an office) is an additional activity to do for the week (Mon-Sun), it could be getting your water in, taking the long route to the bathroom, etc.
We are staring out slow. You can walk where ever you like and at a speed that is comfortable for you. I don't want you to be so sore that you don't continue with the training.
Monday 7/30/12 - 10 Minute Walk (feel free to squeeze this walk in today).
Wednesday 8/1/12 - 15 Minute Walk
Friday 8/3/12 - 10 Minute Walk
Saturday 8/4/12 -18 Minute Walk
This weeks Cubicle Challenge is to drink your water. Try to get at least 80oz a day. **If your doctor wants you to drink less, follow their instructions.
Let me know if your following along and feel free to check in with me during the week.
