Week 3 Email

Dear First Striders - 

How things have changed in a week!  Sorry we won't be meeting tonight and next Wednesday (at least) but it's important that we heed this caution for "social distancing" while continuing our workouts.

WEEK 3 WORKOUT:  The Training Schedule (linked here: for Week 3 says: (3 easy minutes:2 hard minutes x 4 repetitions).  3 full workouts this week. 

Translated:  Warmup comfortably for 5 minutes.  Then do the workout:  3 minutes easy + 2 minutes hard + 3 minutes easy + 2 minutes hard + 3 minutes easy + 2 minutes hard + 3 minutes easy + 2 minutes hard (that's 4 repetitions this week!). Then cool down for 5 minutes.  Done for the day - Good job!  Do this workout a total of 3 days this week.  Always with a REST day in between workouts!  Our week begins Wednesday through Tuesday before we switch to the next week's workout. 

If you have questions, please reply to this email and let me help you!  This is how you will improve ... and that's everyone's goal.

ATTENDANCE CREDIT:  For those able to complete your (3) weekly homework workouts, let me know by replying to any following week's email:

     --- This week (Week 3) you complete your 3 workouts.  (Good for you!)
     --- Next Wednesday, I will send out Week 4 email.  Whenever you read it, hit REPLY.
     --- Type:  (Your Name) did all of Week 3 homework sessions!  (Jane Serues did all 3 homeworks for Week 3).

You can REPLY to ANY official Week 4 ... or Week 5 ... or Week 6 ... email.  It doesn't matter which one!  That's where I will look to record your attendance credit from.  We'll see how this goes.  

Our hope is you will be able to follow through on your good intentions of joining First Strides NMB.  Do your homework! 

INJURY PREVENTION:  This week's topic is how to prevent injuries. We have posted online an Injury Prevention handout (linked here: for you to read ... and heed!  "Soreness" from doing a new activity is one thing (and to be expected).  "Pain" is different!  If something is causing you pain, see if you find your injury described in the handout and follow the recommendations.  

CITY PARKS OPEN:  Reminder that the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex and other city parks are still open.  The fresh air, nice scenery and safe paths will add to your enjoyment of your workouts.

We will miss seeing you these next 2 weeks.  Please keep yourself (and others around you) safe with "social distancing", hand washing, cough covering and staying home if you're sick.  Exercising is good for you!  

Our best,  

Your Mentors
