March With Me 2018 Training Recommendations – 6 Week Program
Posted on February 16th, 2018
When beginning your training program, try to build up your fitness levels – don’t try to do too much before you are ready. Aim for three easy exercise sessions per week, building up to 60 to 90min of exercise/walking in each session.
Target = three sessions of exercise per week of 60 minutes by the end of week one.
Slowly… Increase your duration by 10-15min on at least 1-2 session, but remember to listen to your body and if it feels like you’re doing too much, you probably are.
Hopefully by week 3 you are starting to fine a grove and your walks are becoming more enjoyable (try and change your route to make is a little more scenic/mentally stimulating)
Now you are able to complete 3-4 sessions of exercise per week, you should look to build this up a little more. Continue your routine of 3-4 sessions of at least 60-90 minutes exercise each week, but aim to walk a total of 10-12km each session.(maybe even a few hills)
Target = to be able to walk comfortably for 90min
Good luck to all that s involved and we’ll see you out on the course.
P.s Don’t be hard on yourself if you miss 1-2 sessions, but be sure to get back on with it ASAP.
