Question Leslie fans: How often do you do her 5-milers?

I have several of her 5-mile workouts. My two favorites are her Advanced 5-Mile Walk (2005) and her Miracle Miles: 5 Mile Walk. I don't do them every week, but often on a Sunday. Of course, every day is Sunday for me now.

The Advanced one has three miles that use boosters. Changing the boosters (hand weights, walk belt and the stretchie band) makes time go by faster.

The Miracle Mile on she uses a more varied selection of moves. The 5 miles seem to go by quickly.

Her other 5-milers are OK.

I don't think I've ever done all 5 miles at once. Three is about my limit. Lately I have been using my step and/or very light hand weights and kind of make up my own routine as we go along. It's been working out well.

I will do her 4 Mile Super Challenge every once in awhile, but 2 or 3 miles is my normal. I have done individual miles from the the 5 mile Miracle Mile walk and I like them (especially mile 1 walk concert), just haven't put them all together. I think it's because I don't want to put in more than an hour, but if I'm home with nothing else to do I might just go for it!

I think I may have done five miles ONCE in all the years I used Leslie workouts. I usually did two or three miles. I cannot do them at all now. They bug my hip flexors.

Maybe once or twice. 5 miles just seems too long to me and too much Leslie.

What I am doing now is doing my main workout in the morning (this is normal) and then I will put in a 3-5 mile walk tape (either Jessica or Leslie) and every couple of hours go downstairs and do a mile to break up the work day. I do a different mile each time, and I am working my way through the workouts I haven't used in a while. Even found one that I am going to put up on the trade block, Gina B's dance walk, just seemed to slow or something to me.

Now that we are home til 5/15, new order came today, I will continue this unless the weather gets better than I will go take a break outside and walk for 10-15 minutes.

Before menopause, I did the 5 mile Advanced Walk a couple of times a week.

I haven't been able to do 5 miles since menopause. I'm working up to it. It's my dream goal.
