I've tried doing the first week of the strength a flex podcasts a few times now with varying levels of success. Although Laura says you can do them round the house or garden, my garden isn't big enough for much walking. So I thought when I went for a run tonight I'd try it with the strength exercises. I jogged rather than walked and the warm-up exercises were OK. When I got to the park I headed for a bit that's away from the main paths and a bit less public.
Haven't yet managed to find a fence or something with a horizontal bar at shoulder height for the ones where you lean back. I thought there might be something in the kids play area but it was busy. Didn't much fancy the fence round the electricity substation either. Eventually found a big branch at 45deg which did albeit with one arm higher than the other.
Still haven't got the hang of the leg stretches and find them quite painful especially the oen where you grab your foot. Not sure either about the squats where you bend 10 inches but can still see your toes.
Finished off doing stretches on a bench then jogged home with a few twinges in new places.
Felt a bit more conspicuous in the park doing this than I do running - maybe wearing the new hi-viz gilet wasn't such a good idea! However as I spent more time and had a bit more time to look around I noticed a few cyclists having to get off and push up the little hill I always struggle with when running which made me feel better.
How are others finding these podcasts? Has anyone got to beyond week 1?
