Using an interval timer downloaded to your smart phone we will establish a 1 mile time walk/run/shuffle/jog.
The goals of this workout are:
1.To learn how to use a timer app on your own for home workouts.
2. Learn why walking speed is important and a predictor of health as we age.
3. Formulate a plan to improve your 1 mile time over the next few months.
**Bonus** this will establish a baseline and routine for something to work on every week on your own time!
I recommend using the interval timer on the SmartWOD app to try and improve your 1 mile time. You could set it to 60s work/30s rest and walk or run for 60s then walk at a comfortable speed for 30s for however many rounds it takes to accumulate a mile.
**You could adjust these intervals to something you feel like you could repeat for 8-15 rounds ie: 1min fast/15s slow or 45s fast/45s slow
