54 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Janwary3 anmry 9; 1997 New year a good time to begin a new fitness program Several years ago my running jersey and put together their sea- Cape track members finish up at Henlopen Conference with Coach partner Bob Porter helped me de- sign a ten week program which is designed to bring you from your LazyBoy recliner to a 5K-3.1 mile continuous jog in just under a three month period. The program only has you working out three days per week with a rest day always in-between, and two rest days following your third workout day. The program has been very successful locally with the mix of walking, jogging, stretching, and eating properly. Everyone talks about starting a New Year's resolution. Staying healthy with fitness should be at the top of everyone's list. Daily, or even weekly, exer- cise not only makes you look bet- ter, but it makes you feel a lot bet- ter too. Why not treat yourself to a new pair of running .shoes, a warm-up suit, and get started. If you are interested in the ten week program, which also comes with the ten golden rules that guide you through it, contact the Seashore Striders at 947-1772 and leave your address or see Bob Porter at the Grove Club on Tues- days at 6 p.m. in Rehoboth.
