Thanks! Weight training is tricky (I have a very small window of gym time early in the morning) but my alternate workout is swimming, which hits a lot of muscles. I'm also going to try weight training on the weekends at home.

I try to eat pretty cleanly but now I'm going to focus on getting more protein- especially fish. Thanks for your advice!

No need to be scared :-) Just doing it whether you run, walk, or partially jog, you are making it :-) Very impressed....my suggestions are as follows:

Weight train 3 x a week and add in lunges, stretch and planks for good abdominal condition which will help you enormously.

Train every 2nd or 3rd day. If you run daily , you will find yourself tired and your muscles and conditioning will not have time to recover.

EAT CLEAN ...no frankenfoods....eat lots of protein (chicken, salmon, beef) with lots of veggies/fruits and keep the bad carbs out but good ones like quinoa, buckwheat and brown rice in.
Drink lots of water daily and spread it out throughout the day so you joints get used to nice lubrication
I use Dr. Al Sears (Ultra Greens) daily to help and I juice. I am a Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead movie fan and subscribe to the REBOOT program with Joe Cross. Juicing will get your micro-nutrient intake up big time and you will feel so much better once you get used to it.
I personally juice daily with 1 bunch of kale, 6-8 carrots, one beet, 4-5 apples, half a celery bunch, a bunch of spinach and then add whatever else such as pineapple, watermelon, onion, garlic etc. as is available that day. Micro-nutrients will help your body heal well between runs and workouts, give you real health as you train, lose weight or just live here on earth. There is nothing better for you.

Good Luck and hope to keep in touch. Let me know how you did...remember, finishing is more important than running the whole distance or pushing yourself too hard when you might not need to....

YEAH for YOU :-)

I've never run competitively but I have been exercising and active for a while now. I'm doing a 5K March 2, so it's going to be tight but I can do it.

Other than the workout plan, what do I need to do/be aware of? Nutrition tips? Help!
