Mindy’s Tip:  Do this with a partner for support!  This is a great workout to enjoy outside, but it can also be done at the gym.  Don’t worry if your “run” is a jog or walk at first … perform at your level!  It’ll eventually get easier!

Workout 3: Running (1-2 times this week)
5 minute warm up
3 minute run
2 min walk
4 min run
3 min walk
4 min run

Mindy’s Tip: Looking to pump it up a bit? Increase your run time and decrease your walking time.  Even more? Replace the walking with sprint intervals (30-60 seconds each).

Be sure to take a day for REST!  And, always STRETCH!
