TRAINING PLAN STARTS Runners: you will be continuing on a rather leisurely schedule and at the end of this week only running 2 miles. You won’t be asked to cover the full distance of the end of the year event until December 28.
Walkers: you should be settling into a pattern of 4 days of walking 30 minutes plus a longer Saturday session, which will be repeated next week.
It’s likely that the non-fitness aspects of your life will be intensely busy, in a good way this week, so there’s no rush. Better to attend to the month-long build-up to holiday celebrations and vacations than fret over a tough training program.
This plan is designed to help you stay on a schedule that is not terribly demanding, but which provides sufficient structure to motivate aerobic physical activity leading to a year-end (or year-beginning) event. As noted in an earlier post, training is set at a “keep open” level.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the last full week before December 25, perhaps using training sessions as personal time to unwind and de-stress.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
