Week 3 of our fitness training program features building stamina, slowly progressing to our first short term goal of a 5 minute jog with no breaks. This week jog for 45 seconds and walk for 15 seconds. The on-off technique gently builds your stamina, makes workouts quick and easy, and enables busy people like ourselves to be consistent in our training. Check out Fitness Central for great buys on high tech equipment to help track and monitor every aspect of your training. The Garmin brand runners watch  has a built-in GPS that measures your distance and tracks your route. The data is easily downloaded to your computer for you to analyze. It even calculates your pace per mile!  

Week 3: 45 on-15 off. Walk for 5 minutes to warm up. Stretch lightly. Jog for 45 seconds, then walk briskly for 15 seconds. Repeat this jog-walk workout for a total of 5 minutes. Walk as needed when done to cool off. Light stretching and plenty of fluids.

Tip: Consistancy means not skipping workouts because of excuses like “it’s raining”. Treadmills are great when the weather is bad. You can certainly jog after the rain stops. Jog when it’s a light drizzle, walk on treadmill, indoor track, walk the mall. Be determined to get your workout in! Don’t mess with ice! Ice on roads is a smart reason to re-schedule a workout…be smart about it.
