Weeks 1 to 12

Guidelines

Guidelines:
Guidelines: - For each week, there are three sessions to be done on different days of the week. For the rest of the week, you can do strength training, any general exercise, or just rest. - Be sure to do a 10 minute warm-up before the work out and a 10 minute cool-down after the work out. - On days when you are not doing the walk program’s sessions, you can do strength training exercises or any other kind of exercise you prefer. - Plan on at least one rest day throughout the week to allow for proper muscle healing. - Be sure to drink plenty of water and stretch properly before exercising. - Take it slow. This program is designed for beginners. If you find that any given week was hard for you, then repeat that week’s sessions again before progressing to the next week. - This program is from the book “The Beginning Runner’s Handbook” by Ian MacNeill & The Sports Medicine Council of British Columbia.
