The Absolute Minimum

  • Be conservative when choosing a training protocol—find the one that fits your goals and current fitness level.

  • Perform a majority, if not all, of your weekly workouts at an easy-to-moderate intensity to prevent injuries.

  • Use both your target heart rate range and the RPE scale to monitor your intensity during walking and running.

  • Over time, discover the correlation between various intensity levels and your walking or running pace.

  • Incorporate at least one day of cross training into your weekly routine for variety, injury prevention, and fun!
