I am also used to power walking a minimum of three miles a day and thought that the walk/jog would be a fairly easy upgrade. Like ARTISTICROSE, I am finding that there is a huge difference biomechanically between walking and jogging. While I have the aerobic ability to jog, my feet and legs feel like lead weights. Maybe it is also because I am 65 years old. But I thought I was in fairly good condition. Hopefully the training will get easier once my legs are accustomed to the jogging portion...

Focusing on the positive.

I'm use to walking and thought walk/jog would be a good way to up my exercise. Looking forward to completing the next four weeks. And you are right that minute is long. : )

I do my strength training on alternated days from my cardio. I usually do Pilates or Yoga for strength which incorporates stretches so I dont forget to stretch which I usually do not do!!!

I do stretch afterwards while I am still warmed by the training. I avoid doing the strenght in the same day, I usually choose to do it next day. I usually walk for 10 minutes before the ST, do it, and then stretch all over again. I am finding out that stretching is giving me more power to endure the exercises and not feel any pain during or after them! good Luck!!

emoticon . I also just finished Week 1 and it feels great! I was wondering about the stretching do you stretch before or after you run? I usually do my strength training after and completely forget to stretch.

I've just finished Week 1 and I feel great. This third day was much easier, but I confess that the first two trainings were hard. I didn't know that a minute could actually feel like 10 minutes...my legs are not used to jogging, so it was more related to the muscle reaction than the breathing. But here I am, happy to have completed the first week and ready for more. Let me say: stretching for 10 minutes with the right movements has HELPED A LOT. I do recommend!
