WEEK 8 - April 22nd-28th

Dear First Striders,

It does seem that quite a few of you have not been able to report in on having a successful week of First Strides NMB training.  We seem to have hit our peak and are dropping off … or no longer reporting.  With homework reported through Week 6, we have:

(22) with 3 weeks credit;  (27) with 4 weeks credit; (16) with 5 weeks credit; (6) with 6 weeks credit (100%).  

There is still time to get back on track – but we do understand that these are strange and stressful times.  Remember to take care of your health and be safe.

WEEK 8 WORKOUT (April 22 - 28):  1 Easy minutes; 4 Hard minutes x 6 repetitions.  Always begin with the 5 minute warmup and end with the 5 minute cool down.  4 times again this week!

Again, you do not need to add the 4th day!  If you do, make it a 30 minute easy/recovery pace day.  Alternate your rest days with your workout days.  Both 3-day or 4-day workouts count!

NOTE:  You might question whether you can do this week’s workout with only (1) easy recovery minute.  YOU CAN!  Your body is now trained to “recover” faster on your “easy minute”.  Go V-E-R-Y easy on your recovery minute; then pick-up your pace just a bit on your harder 4 minutes.  Don’t push as hard.  Trust the program!!!

ATTENDANCE CREDIT CHALLENGE:  For those of you able to complete our 3 (or 4) homework sessions this past Week 7 (April 15-21), please REPLY to this email with the following sentence:

 "(First & Last name) completed 3 (or 4, choose one) sessions in Week 7."  

If you haven’t responded to the choices about our postponement to the fall session, you can find the options on (until mid-June).  Or find the original Postponement email (4/5/2020 1:26 pm).  Please let us know when you know.

Motivation is what gets you going.  Habit is what keeps you going!  Unknown
