30 Day Challenge #2 – Day Eight

Day Eight

You are now 1/4 of the way throught this challenge and I want you to do some more cardio today.  One part of this challenge is for everyone to realise that in order to continue towards a healthier lifestyle, they must reach out on their own.  So today’s challenge is all about that.  I will give you the basic tools and it is up to you how you use them!

So, today’s session is as follows:

30 min – Cardio.

You must remember that you need to warm up at the start and cool down at the end.  In between, I want you to combine your walk/jog/run.  How long you spend on each is up to you.  You choose how hard you want to push yourself, just like you have chosen to undertake this challenge.  If you feel up for it, push.  If you need to recover, recover. When you run, I want you to make sure of the following:

  • Keep your shoulders back, head up and look about 10-15m in front – run tall.
  • Make sure you don’t overstride.  If you overstride your footstrike could be too aggressive which in turn will impart too much impact shock through your legs.
  • Don’t run too fast.  you are not training for the Olympics (yet), so keep the run speed nice and easy.
  • Finally, try and get into a nice comfortable rhythm.  Once you have your rhythm, maintain it for as long as possible.

Well done, you have now completed Day Eight of the 30 Day Challenge.  That’s 240 min of ‘me time’.  I hope you are enjoying this challenge and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments by either commenting on this post, or, email me at head4fitness@yahoo.co.uk.

Have a fit and healthy day.

Rob 🙂
