Under the Restriction of Covid 19, 2 kilometer exercise limit, we don’t want you jogging in circles and decided that we would break it down to achievable targets. This is for everyone who would like to get from walking to jogging, but might be a little unsure on how to get started. Sometimes we are all very enthusiastic at the start and we can overdo it, feel defeated and give up when we are just getting going. This programme works because it starts with a mix of walking and jogging to gradually build up your fitness & stamina.
