5K Training


Wednesday, September 04, 2013

10 days until my next 5k run! I am praying I can make it through this run ok with my bum knee but I am certain it should be easier than my last. My first 5k run last month was a mud run with obstacles so a regular 5k I have been training the last 6 weeks for should be better...right..lol I sure hope so! I walked a 5k in May and could barely walk for 4 days, August's 5k I was only a little sore the day after. It felt amazing seeing what strength I had gained just in those few months so I am excited to see just what I can do this 5k. I finished my first 5k walk in 1:45 min, 2nd mud run with obstacles was 1:05...my goal is to finish this 5k in under 55 minutes about 18 minutes a mile! Yesterdays training mile I was able to run 13 of the 20 minutes so I am really hoping to crush my personal record!

    Sounds like you're gonna do great, based on your training yesterday!! I'm doing a Lunar 5k on the 14th and can't wait. This will be the first time I've attempted to jog during a 5k (usually just walk). I've been using a C25K training plan (not faithfully though), and was really surprised last night at how much longer I can jog at a time! It really does feel good to notice these small accomplishments!! I can't wait to hear how it goes for you! Keep up the hard work!

start out slow and keep your pace throughout the race. Find someone in front of you to be the pacer and try to stay just behind them.
