Walk It Off: Charity Walks
To Prepare for a Long-Distance Walk
(such as the 2- and 3-day charity walks)
- Make time for two long (at least 90 minutes) and three short (about 30 minutes) sessions each week. Begin training at least 16 weeks before the event.
- Integrate short workouts into your life: Walk quickly to work or to meet your kids after school. Move faster than you do on your long walks.
- Each week add an extra 10 to 20 minutes onto your long walks. Build up to a minimum of 3 hours.
- As the event nears, do the long walks two days in a row to get your body used to doing a lot one day and then doing it again the very next day.
