The Level 3 jogging program is definitely much harder than Level 2. Instead of jogging 1 mile a day with a 15 min. warm-up (which I actually did as a cool-down), I’ll be jogging 3 miles a day! What a change!
This workout is the jogging section of the Navy Seal Workout Book. Click here and here for links to previous posts about this. Anyways, the Navy Seal book includes jogging/swimming, upper body work, lower body work, ab work, etc. It’s a lot to do, I wasn’t motivated to keep up with it, and I didn’t really have the time or energy to keep up with the program, work full time, and do grad school. Thus, I modified it to just the jogging portion. Sometimes, I swim instead of jog. If I have time and energy, I do some sit-ups and dumbbell work. Currently, I’ve been using 8 pound weights.
Here’s a picture of the Level 3 workout plan:
As you can see (above), I do a 1 mile warm-up, stretch, and then jog 2 miles. After five of these workouts, I jog a 1-mile warm-up with a 3-mile jog (=4 miles). Yikes! I will be very interesting to see how this goes!
(Below) I’ve added an inspirational outdoor hiking image to help motivate me. I’d definitely love to go hiking with my husband near a waterfall in the mountains! I got the picture from a Wyoming travel magazine.
