Walking and Running Programs For All Abilities

Walking or running — our objective is to get women to the starting line of fitness.

Regardless of your age or ability we aim to create opportunities in walking and running around the world. 
  The resulting good health and personal empowerment is truly transformational.

Whether you want to begin a program for fitness, lose weight, reduce stress, reduce your risk of cardiovascular health, or become a competitive athlete, or just run or walk in a local fun run, consistent running and walking will get you there.

As with all exercise programs, please consult your doctor before starting.

Good information is essential, and the following brief programs have been used successfully by thousands of women. They are from my best selling book, Running and Walking for Women Over 40…the Road to Sanity and Vanity.  No matter what your age– or gender! — this book is an invaluable source.   It even has been used to train children!

Tips

  • Patience provides the best results. Don’t be discouraged if your progress seems slow. We all want immediate results, but we need to be patient. This is all new to your body, even if you’ve been active in the past. It is far more important to build a strong, healthy base — even if it takes longer — than it is to progress too quickly and risk being discouraged or injured.
  • As with everything, start in moderation. It’s not necessary (even discouraged) to walk or run every day as a beginner. And don’t go too far, too fast.
  • Kathrine Switzer

    If you miss a workout, don’t feel guilty. We’re all human. Just start again as soon as possible. If you miss many days, you may need to start again at a gradual pace.

  • Keep a training log. Keep a record of how far you went, how you felt before and after, weather and things you noticed along the way.
