Cornerstone Park Weekly “Fitness” Walk

January 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-8

Please note, our articles may contain referral or affiliate links.

**********************************
Please be sure to read the informative “About” section in its entirety to ensure this fitness-based event is suited for you.
**********************************
Come join a quick-pace calorie-burning walk around Railroad Lake of Cornerstone Park in SW Henderson. This lake park is a well maintained and serviced year-round estuary & wildlife wetlands, with small ground-dwelling critters & various waterfowl present for those that enjoy seeing wildlife in a quasi-natural setting.

**********************************
We’ll meet under the covered patio area on the lake side of the main Public Services complex located mid-way into the parking area.

**********************************
This will be the start/finish point for each lap completed. Please arrive earlier than the start time if you prefer to do stretching exercises.
We leave the start point at approximately 2:00 PM.

The first half of lap #1 will be at a slightly slower pace to warm-up, then the pace will progress quickly to an average 3.5 mph — 17-minute mile.
The proposed distance will be 5.2 miles (4 laps) — or – 2.6 miles (2 laps) for those wanting a less challenging event.
For those who have kept pace, we will take a 3-minute rest/hydration break (longer if needed) after laps #1 and #3 — with a longer 5-minute break after lap #2.

While this is a relatively manageable quick-pace walking event, concessions & considerations will be made in the first 4 weeks for those challenging their fitness level — this “fitness” event is primarily geared for those who know they can keep a 17-minute mile pace for the 2.6 or 5.2 mile distance — and for those who intend to progress to pace & distance in 3 to 4 weeks.

There are three easy-to-moderate uphill areas of the otherwise level and paved multi-use path we will take around the lake.
Wherein; at the one short-but-moderate uphill area, the intent is to either keep pace or increase it to push for building physical and cardio stamina — the pace will slow here on the downhill to recover — then back to pace at the bottom.

There is a newly constructed multi-station body-weight resistance fitness court adjacent to the basketball courts (just North along the path and visible from the start point) for those interested in working that into the event in lieu of a lap or two — or — before or after the event.

Weather permitting, this will be offered as a weekly fitness event – (extreme chill factor, rain and/or thunderstorm cancels).

NOTE:

– Three-wheeled running-type strollers or pet carries or body-carriers would be welcomed for small children and acclimated-in-such pets.
– Otherwise, NO children & NO Pets.
– Layering of your outerwear is advised.
– Head & hand cover may be a preferred by some during these few cold months ahead.
– Bring AT LEAST 1 liter of your preferred hydration liquid.
– Please RSVP with integrity and consideration. No shows, multiple and late cancelations are discouraged.
