"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors.
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 5: September 15 to September 21, 2011
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).
Week 5: Injuries
You are now into the fifth week of your program and hopefully you’re starting to see some of the benefits of a regular exercise routine. The past four weeks have set a solid base for your legs as we now enter crunch time for this year’s Intertrust Cayman Marathon (12 weeks away). Studies show that it takes approximately 9 weeks (on average) to form a habit. This week will take you beyond the midway point of establishing that habit which makes it all the more important to remain on track and avoid any set backs. By set backs I am just going to come right out and say it – injuries. The dreaded “I” word. Please note while I don’t intend to wish ill will on anyone by discussing this topic I think you could benefit from a few titbits I’ve learned on how to deal with, and prevent, injuries.
