Yesterday I signed up for a 5K run. It is the Pumpkin Pie 5K in Denver, and part of the proceeds will go to a cause very dear to my heart, Global Hope (we have to get a team of 10 or more to earn money for Global Hope). The problem is that I haven’t been walking or running consistently for awhile. So, today will be my Week 1, Day 2 workout. Six weeks is not long enough to be in great shape for a 5K, but I hope to be better than I am now. This is just the push I needed to get up off of the couch and move.
Brisk 5 minute walk. Then, alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
Day 2: Repeat Day 1.
