C25K Jan-March 2020

Week 4 of C25K......and we were lucky with the weather being milder and no rain!

So, after warm up brisk walking & dynamic stretches as we made our way to the 2nd carpark, we did:

2xStrides in 2 groups before:
2x1.5 min run
2x3 min run
2x1.5 min run (with walks inbetween), focusing on running on the balls of our feet (lego bricks/eggshells), and introduced 'arms', piston motion, keeping our arms from crossing the front of our bodies.

We did a cooldown walk then did our static stretches on our calves/hamstrings/quads/iliotibial side stretch/heel raises & 'good mornings'
We introduced the Plank as our core exercise to practice for the week.

Homework 1:
After brisk warm ups & dynamic stretches, do 1x80-100M Stride, followed by 4x3min run with 2 min walk after each run.
Do a 3 min cool down walk & static stretches
Homework 2:
After brisk warm ups & dynamic stretches, do 2x3 min run & 2 min walk
1x5 min run & 3 min walk
1x3 min run then cool down with 5 min walk & static stretches.
Practise doing The Plank.
