WEEK 5 - April 1st - 7th
Dear First Striders –
As the news predicts bleaker weeks ahead for the Coronavirus, I hope you all are following the recommended guidelines intended to keep you and yours healthy. I hope that allows you to get some exercise daily.
Our workshops continue to be cancelled as directed. I will be sending a communication from RunSignUp (our registration site and website host) very soon. Sorry for the delay.
WEEK 5 WORKOUT (April 1 – 7): 2 Easy minutes; 3 Hard minutes x 5 repetitions. Always begin with the 5 minute warmup and end with the 5 minute cool down. 3 times this week – every other day.
ATTENDANCE CREDIT CHALLENGE*: For those of you that were able to complete your 3 homework sessions this past week (March 25-31), please REPLY to this email with the following sentence:
“(First & Last name) completed all 3 workouts for Week 4.”
*NOTE: With all that is going on, I am sure many of you are not able to complete all assigned workouts each week. But, if you miss a week or have had to miss a couple of weeks, we encourage you to continue to report in for those weeks you ARE ABLE to get out and do your homework. Don’t give up!!! Getting outdoors and accomplishing something good for yourself (and consequently for the “others” in your life) is what we wish for you. It is (or may be) something you can control during this time of chaos. If you have missed a whole week, go back and use the previous week’s homework assignment and work up chronologically each week from there. You may not get through all 12 weeks but, 10 or 8 weeks are still good for your health!
TIPS FOR CHOOSING LOCATIONS and TIME FOR YOUR WORKOUTS: As long as there are not restrictions on using the streets (and some parks), these are things to consider:
NO HANDOUT THIS WEEK: Consider the above commentary the topic. But, do review the attached Week 1 handout about “Hot Weather Tips!”
Stay well all!
