Secrets of Success

Train For Something




In October 2011 I was not able to complete a 5K walk that incorporated walking up 1000 steps (the annual Bisbee 1000, AZ). The next day I set out to lose 65 pounds and increase my strength and endurance so I can go back in 2012 and complete the walk. That is my motivation to "train."

More Information:

I am already registered for the 2012 walk in October and am well on my way to being fit to finish!

  • I know this was posted some time ago, but I was searching on the Bisbee1000 and came across your post. My husband just came up with the bright idea for us to do it as well. Woosah! I just want to complete it, not finish in a certain amount of time. Good luck to you!! Let me know if you come up with any training ideas. I can only think of walking up and down stairs and maybe some hills around here. :) - by MORELOVE
