Dear clients, friends and family,
Spring has arrived! As the days get longer and warmer, we typically want to spend more time outdoors. It's also a time of year when many people get inspired to start taking better care of themselves - especially with summer and swimsuit season just around the corner!
Many people will start a running program to help jump-start them into shape. However, most new running programs don't last very long because people wind up getting injured because they've done too much, too soon. So I wanted to pass along a good Learn to Run program that will ease your body into the impact forces associated with running.
Follow this program 3x/week on alternating days.
Week One: (Run 1 min. Walk 4 min) x 4 = 20 minute workout
Week Two: (Run 2 min. Walk 3 min) x 5 = 25 minute workout
Week Three: (Run 3 min. Walk 2 min) x 6 = 30 minute workout
Week Four: (Run 4 min. Walk 1 min) x 6 = 30 minute workout
Week Five: (Run 5 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 30 minute workout
Week Six: (Run 6 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 35 minute workout
Week Seven: (Run 7 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 40 minute workout
Week Eight: (Run 8 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 45 minute workout
Week Nine: (Run 9 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 50 minute workout
Week Ten: (Run 10 min. Walk 1 min) x 5 = 55 minute workout
This program will get you in great shape and prepare you to run a 3 mile run by summer!
Note: We are also starting a Learn to Run program at the end of this month at both our Vancouver and Portland locations. Nothing like a group to keep you accountable and get you to the finish line! Call 360.574.7292 or 503.287.0655 for more details or to register.
Yours in health and fitness,
ps. Have you ever wanted to jump out of a plane? I'm tandem skydiving this Saturday March 27th in Molalla Oregon. The cost is $180 per person and I'm freaked out so the more people there to do it with me, the better! If you're interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
