Each day I nominate a number of steps or exercise time for each group you need to do the amount given according to the group you have chosen, depending on your own mobility and capability. The groups are GROUP 1 Suitable for those who are just starting. GROUP 2 Suitable for those who are more capable and have been either walking or chair marching for a time. GROUP 3 . Suitable for those walk long distances in comfort. GROUP 4 Suitable for Wheelchair/non-walking members ONLY
Exercise is any exercise Swimming, Water aerobics, Chair Dancing, Exercise DVDs, strength training, gym etc Steps can be accumulated through the day walking, chair marching etc You need to count your steps a pedometer is the best way to do this, or time your exercise. Unless stated you can mix up the steps and exercise time freely. Steps or exercise amounts required can be broken up through the day but they must total the given amount by the end of the day.
Please record your progress in the thread there is a template for recording your progress or you may do it in your own way..
At the end of each week if you have completed the whole week you can Sparkmail me for a Goodie and if anyone does all 4 weeks fully please ask me for a special Goodie .
You may use the free days to catch up if you need - but you may not go ahead!! You may do extra exercise or steps at any time.
As we go along I have added descriptions and links to photos and articles and I have created blog that will run alongside this Trekacise each week with some spectacular photos, all of which are for your interest only,. but will give you an introduction to the areas we are walking through for you to visualise them, maybe even tempt you to make a visit one day.
