Many of us make goals for fitness in a new year. Whether it’s to improve a certain skill, like running, or lose weight, or just feel healthier and have more energy, that’s a great goal. And you can get there without slogging the same workout in every day. If you’d rather mix it up, you can follow a workout calendar that will tell you what to do every day. Similar to a couch to 5K, but with a whole slew of workouts you can choose from.
The Calendar Plan
