I was given this workout by my District Nurse. It looks hard, but the District Nurse says it does get easier in time
3 x 30 minute walks a week.
It may be easier break it down into 3 x 10 minute walks to accumulate the 30 minutes.
You may break this down into 2 x 15 minute walks to accumulate 30 minutes.
The next 3 weeks are devoted to increasing the distance, speed and difficulty of your walks, so you are able to cope with longer more arduous trips.
5 x 30 minute walks per week.
Again, you may break this down into 2 walks of 15 minutes.
Step up your walking habit by increasing to 5 x 45 minute walks per week
You can break this up into 1 x 15 minute and 1 x 30 minute walk.
Time to increase the effort by adding some more speed and / or endurance to your workout.
Continue with 5 x 45 minute walks a week but either try to walk further each time or take a different route and include a few hills.
Week 6 onwards
Congratulations!! You are now a walker. Keep up the good work.
Aim to increase to an hour of walking every day – remember you can still break it down into smaller chunks if you find it hard to find the time.
