Walking/ Jogging

For  week 6 and 7; walk at a brisk pace in Vibrams FiveFingers / barefoot for a period of 5 minutes, followed by alternating light jogging for 3 minute, walking for 1 minute for a total of 20 minutes. Finish with 5 minutes walking. Do this three times per week.

Walking / jogging may be done on the same day as the strengthening exercises but it does not have to. However, it is suggested that you continue to use the walks as a warm up for the stretching routine.
