Marsden March Training Programmes
For some time I’ve been supporting Marsden Hospital by providing training programmes for charity fundraisers who are taking part in activities ranging from the Marsden March through to running marathons.
I’ve put together a set of training schedules for all abilities ranging from beginner, through intermediate and onto advanced walkers. These were created to make sure walkers are fully prepared for the ‘My Marsden March‘ challenge. Each walking plan helps you to gradually increase your walking distance over a period of around 10 weeks.
As with any exercise programme, it is recommended that you consult with your doctor/GP to make sure it is appropriate for you.
The training plans included are:
- Walking training plan for beginners – up to 6 miles
- This training plan is suitable for absolute beginners. It is designed to build you up to walking for 60-70 minutes, which will equate to about 4 miles. You can gradually increase the time of your longest training session until you are able to walk up to 6 miles.
- Walking training plan for beginners – 10 miles
- This training plan is designed for people who can already walk approximately 6 miles at a slow pace. It is designed to build you up to walking 10 miles.
- Walking training plan for intermediates – 13 miles
- Intermediate level walking requires an increased level of fitness and condition. This training plan is designed to build you up to walking 13 miles.
- Walking training plan for intermediates – 20 miles
- Intermediate level walking requires an increased level of fitness and condition. This training plan is designed to build you up to walking 20 miles.
- Walking training plan for advanced – 26-30 miles
- This plan will help you prepare for distances of 26 miles or more, and progress to multi-day trekking. At this level it’s likely that much of your trekking will be on hills and across fields.
