I have been hiking a lot and just recently picked up Wogging. It's my gentler version of jogging, or a little more intense than walking. I love running, but my knees don't. I stopped running years ago, but realized there are many situations in life where I need to pick up the pace with a little quick jog. Playing tennis, chasing a grand kid, running to put my trash cans out after forgetting to and I can hear the Trash Truck down the street.
My physiology training dictates that perhaps I shouldn't let my body forget how to run. It's shown that a little impact builds strong bones. I don't plan on ever competing in a running race again, but I don't want to not be able to run if I have to. with that said, I now Wog a few mornings a week
The Wog will be on the hillside area in my neighborhood. There is some elevation and the trail is slightly rocky but not loose.
We warm up for 12-15 minutes. We will jog for 2 minutes, walk for two minutes, jog for four minutes, walk for 4 minutes, jog for 8 minutes, walk for 8 minutes and than back the other direction with one extra 2 minute jog to make a combined time of 30 minutes jogging and 30 minutes walking. If it has been a very long time since you have jogged, or if you have never jogged, or if you are carrying a little extra weight, my suggestion would be to keep it to 2 minute intervals the first 2 weeks and then add minutes providing your knees are dealing well with Wogging.
