Training Walks

Outline programme only, Look at the current calendar for dates, times & details

 

A physical fitness regime, requires a minimum of 3 training sessions a week, which like the walks below should build in demand week-on-week. In an ideal schedule you would only increase your demands by 10% each week, time & pressures outside of the event have not give us this privilege.

A good link to think about preparing your body & that of your team is: Marathon Training Program

  • Try to fit as much training in as possible.

  • Make it TEAM training if you can.

  • Get out and walk with a full weight rucksack as often as possible. 

  • Buy your walking boots early & wear them on all your walks.

  • Cross training is great: 

    • Running 

    • cycling

    • Swimming 

    • Kayaking/Canoeing/Surfing

    • Horse riding

    • etc

  • Rest days are as important as your training days, so keep: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays clear if you can.
