Add Miles + Feel Good
Join me for a 12-week progressive walking program to increase miles and feel good.
How far is 10,000 steps? We have all heard the benefits of “getting our steps in everyday.” 10,000 steps is the equivalent of walking 5 miles. Often, individuals consider all of their steps in a day. For example, walking to the kitchen for food as well as our car in the parking lot are part of our total 10,000 steps for a day.
Our goal is just about double that number. As well, we aim to consistently walk at under a 20-minute mile pace. In 12 weeks, we’ll expand our ability to walk quickly and continuously for 9 miles in 3 hours or less.

While you may initiate your 12-week training whenever you desire, the training plan is designed to begin in December and culminates in March with an event in Jacksonville, Florida called The Gate River Run – which we can walk. We must be able to complete the event in under 3 hours.
A primary goal is to feel good and not get injured. Granted, we will have weeks where we are tired and sore. Be sure to listen to your body and take time to rest, recover, and restore. I’ll offer a few self care tips along the way. If you sign up to receive the training PDF, you’ll automatically start receiving the regular self care tips in your email inbox.
