We will start off from the very basics of warming up, and stretching. We will progress from walking to running, with the goal of 30 minutes running.

The sessions will consist of 45 minutes of activity, followed by by a 15-20 minute talk/ discussion. The aim of the first week's talk/ discussion will be to work together to plan your walk/ run programme. In subsequent weeks, there will be the chance to talk about ‘Choosing The most Suitable Running Shoes For You,’ and ‘ Injury Prevention.’

========================================

Plan for Week 1 Session 10/05/18

Introductions and Admin

Warm Up – Active Stretching. Going through a range of gentle stretches while moving, in preparation for exercise.

Warm Up – Plyometrics. (Jumping – gentle hopping, skipping, jumping etc.) This will be incorporated into a game.

Main Activity.

Below is an example of the type of activity we will be doing. - 5 minutes – Partner up. You will be walking or jogging gently around a circle of cones. Stand back to back on the outside of the circle. The person going clockwise will set off walking at a relaxed/recovery pace. Their partner who is going anticlockwise will either walk briskly or jog gently until they meet. On meeting your partner you turn back in the opposite direction you were just going. If you had been walking at relaxed/recovery pace you will now be walking briskly or jogging. If you had been walking briskly or jogging gently before you will now be walking at recovery pace. This is repeated each time you meet up with your partner around the circle until the end of the 5 minutes.

Cool down.
