5 Weeks to a 5K: Week 5
This is it: the week of the 5K! I hope you are excited, I know I am (and a little nervous too). The biggest goal of this last week is to make sure your body is ready to run by the end of the week without doing too much so the body is not worn out by the time it is to start the 5K. No matter how your training went, I hope you are excited to either get back into 5Ks or run your very first one. Races are so fun because they are just an encouraging atmosphere because everyone is there just trying to complete their goals. Let’s get running!
Monday: Run 3 miles, walk 5 minutes; or run 30 minutes, walk 5 minutes
Tuesday: Light weight training 30 minutes
Wednesday: Run 1.5 miles, walk 15 minutes; or run 15 minutes, walk 15 minutes
Thursday: 30 minute walk
Saturday: Race day!
This is an exciting week! If your race is on Sunday, you can just move every scheduled day one day later (Monday’s workout on Tuesday, etc.). You could also add another day that is a light jog or walk just keep it light. Good luck and have fun!
