Our advice on Day 3 is simple, but we know it can be difficult. Take care of yourself. For us, that means to eat well, drink a LOT of water, and get plenty of REST.

Our Day 3 warm-up and strength exercise will be walk-outs. Bend down, putting your palms on the ground, and walk your hands out to a plank/pushup position. Then walk your feet up as close to your hands as possible. Do a set of 5 of these walk-outs. You'll probably be a lot more flexible.

As promised, this is Day 3 of building your aerobic capacity. And you know that means another 15 to 20 minutes run! Again, if you need to stop, feel free to. But begin running again as soon as you can. Enjoy your run, check-in with how you're feeling, make sure you journal it, and we'll see you on Day 4!
