This is a series of workouts that are perfect for a beginner runner. These sessions are specially designed for people who find running hard and avoid it because of that. These sessions break down running into easier segments to make the sessions achievable. Over the next three weeks I’m going to post a run/walk workout every second day, that when sequenced correctly will give you an easy session to get you started with running. As you work through the workouts, the session involve more and more running, but because you have worked through them even though they involve more running they are just as easy because your fitness has improved.
Click here for the first workout.
This is the fourth session and it follows Run/Walk IA, IB, IC & IIA and is followed by IIC, and then IIIA IIIB, and IIIC.
Now lets get onto the workout:
- 3min Run WU;
- 3min Walk WU;
- 6x 3min Run, 2min Walk RI;
- 4min Walk CD (40min)
This session takes a total of 40 minutes and commences with a Warm Up (WU) run for three minutes, then a three minute walk to complete the Warm Up (WU).
After the Warm Up (WU) you then commence a series of run intervals. They are only two minutes long before you get to walk for two minutes as a Rest Interval (RI). Repeat this a total of six times before moving onto the Cool Down (CD).
The session concludes with a four minute walk Cool Down (CD).
This session takes 40 minutes and only involves an accumulated total of 21 minutes of running.
This is a really great workout to get started with running. Feel free to go out and try it.
