Big Dam Journey Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of your #BigDamJourney

Our first week of training is about to begin and good news, we don't start until Tuesday. Some key points to remember:

Use your rest days. If you haven't been running at all you may be sore. Rest will HELP. Cross training is also a good thing to do on these days. Swim, Bike or just walk. (But not excessive Donuts)

For Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday we want you to jog EASY for 60 seconds, then walk for 90 seconds. (Yes that's it!)

If you have questions please tweet #BigDamJourney to @RebeccaBrocton or @maddie3013 or @brentwpeterson

We will make the training available each Sunday and we also hope to have a video available each week. I appologize for the sound, graphics and cheesy jokes that happened in this weeks video as well as all subsiquent videos. 

Week 1
26th Feb - 4th Mar
Monday
Rest
This is the start of your Big Dam journey!

Make sure you stay hydrated, eat well, protect yourself from the sun, have comfy trainers & share your progress to help you (& @RebeccaBrocton) to stay motivated!

Tuesday
60 / 90
Brisk five minute warmup walk.

Alternate 60 secs of jogging & 90 secs of walking for 20 mins.

The first step is the hardest, but it’s oh so worth it!
Wednesday
Rest
How was yesterday? Feeling good?

Today you can rest or fit in 30–40 mins of easy training on a bike, cross-trainer or go for a swim.

This will build your strength without risking injury.
Thursday
60 / 90
Brisk five minute warmup walk.

Alternate 60 secs of jogging & 90 secs of walking for 20 mins.

Running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop and the part that wants to keep going.
Friday
Rest
TGIF! Give your body a rest today & don’t forget to look after your mind.

Each year, 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems. It’s ok to talk about it & to seek help.
