Sample Day 1

0:45:00
45 minute swim

30-45 minute easy swim. Just get in the pool and swim your choice of strokes, resting when needed.

Sample Day 2

0:30:00
30 minute run

Get out and run easy! Conversational pace. Start with a walk and ease into a jog, the slowly pick up the pace but be able to maintain a conversation when you run. Walk to cool down for a few minutes after the run.

Sample Day 3

0:45:00
Your Choice!

Do about 45 minutes of any activity. You can strength train, take a yoga class, go rock climbing... Take it as a rest day if you need to.

Sample Day 4

0:45:00
45 minute swim

30-45 minute easy swim. Again, we're getting used to being in the pool so swim your choice of strokes and rest when you need to.

Sample Day 6

0:30:00
30 minute run

Get out and run easy! Conversational pace. Start with a walk and ease into a jog, the slowly pick up the pace but be able to maintain a conversation when you run. Walk to cool down for a few minutes after the run.

Sample Day 7

1:00:00
60 minute bike ride

Just get on the bike and go for a ride. Nothing too intense here - keep the effort level around a 5/10. You can ride on an indoor trainer or take a spin class. If you are new to spin, you might take it easy for the first few classes as they are usually much more intense.

Sample Day 8

0:45:00
45 minute swim

30-45 minute easy swim. Your choice of strokes, but do as much freestyle as you can. Take rests when you need to.
