Week 11: Monday - My day of wellness
If you were to ask me what my favourite day of the week is my answer would probably be quite different from most. While many individuals are living for the weekend I personally can’t wait for Monday to arrive. Monday’s are my self proclaimed “Day of Wellness”. My typical weekend includes running upwards of 10 hours and can also include some work in the pool. So when Monday finally arrives I know it’s my day, after completing my obligations at work of course, to kick back and recover. My day of wellness is actually a couple of alternative therapy appointments followed by a good low intensity stretch and my schedule is as follows 5:30 – 6:00 PM Acupuncture, 6:00 – 7:00 PM Chiropractic/Active Release Technique (ART) massage and 7:15 – 8:15 PM Yin Yoga class with Rythmn and Roots Yoga.
Each week A Crazy Idea will provide a suggested schedule of activity for those individuals who are looking to get a little bit crazy and dwell outside their comfort zone as they prepare for and complete their first Half Marathon (13.1 miles).
Here at A Crazy Idea we truly believe the importance of a balanced and healthy diet as well as regular exercise. Below we have created simple exercise regimes you can follow, either to get you up and active, or running schedules you can follow to get you fit in order to partake at any level in the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon on December 3, 2011.
Our exercise schedules come in three forms: Beginner walker, Beginner runner and Novice runner and will be updated each week.
Week 11: October 27 to November 2, 2011
Your health is of the utmost importance and not to be neglected. Even though moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, is safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk to your doctor before you start any exercise program.
