Yet another newbie ...


Recommended Posts

I started on Wednesday but couldn't finish so re-started Thursday, then did Day #2 today (Friday). I just noticed there are only 3 days in the training week. Am I supposed to run every day or alternate days? If it is alternate days? Do I rest 2 days between weeks or just continue with every other day?

Hi There Haska,

 

Welcome on here.

 

Yes, 3 days a week, aternate them.  I like to repeat one day and do 4 and then do other workouts and lift weights the other days.  You are doing great.  

 

Come on over to the Accoutability 2015 Board and join us there too.  Make a Journal..   You can do it!  Keep it up, Good Luck!

Thank you Kelly!!  I will skip tomorrow and then do Day #3 on Sunday.  I have to say I'm one of those people who never thought I could do this!!  I have an avid running friend who has encouraged me and read many blogs of people who never thought they could.  I was finally convinced to try when someone wrote "don't discount a form of exercise until you've tried it."  I've also lost almost 15 pounds with Weight Watchers with another 100 to go.  I will definitely move over to the accountability board!  Thanks again for your help.

I have my workout week set as Mo, We, Fri. Then it's nice to know I can push the whole process back 1 day at any point and still be good to go to restart the following week. That way if Wednesday looks like a bad day Ill do Mon, Thu, Sat/ It could also be Mon, Wed, Sat, or Tues, Thui, Sat. That extra day is your "Get out of workout free" card that still allows you to stay tyrue to yourself and maintain the fitness level of a 3 day workout. BTW unless sick, i never actually take a day off. A so called "Off" day is at least 10k steps.

 

Welcome!!
