I made a note card for what to do for my walk to take with me.
WEEK 1 Session 1
Warm-up: Walk slow & easy for 10 min.
3 min. brisk walk followed by 2 min. slow & easy recovery walk;
2 min. brisk walk - 2 min. recovery walk;
1 min. brisk walk - 2 min. recovery walk.
Repeat this combination 2 times.
Cool-down: Walk slow & easy for 10 min.
I will walk on a local track. I have a stop watch and will get a sports watch soon.
I also did a session with Via to condition her to wear a head halter so that in the near future she can walk with me.
My first goal is a year down the road. I'd like to be the handler for Via's AD. It is an endurance test that is a prelude to a earning SCHH title. I would like to either run it or ride on a bike. I don't have a bike yet but I do have a springer. I think the bike is much more realistic for me as the AD is 20 km [12.4 miles] at a pace of 7 to 9 miles per hour.
I also want need just have to get fit so that I can keep up with my dog in agility. I don't want to have a heart attack!
