NOT TOO LATE TO START TURKEY TROT TRAINING Have you enjoyed the last days of summer and put off planning a fall season running or walking schedule? Not yet registered for a Turkey Trot on the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend? Nothing to worry about if you have Earned Runs bibs. If not, you can REQUEST a set of 4 now and request a FREE set of stickers for BIB decoration and motivation.
There is a link to free training plans (various distances) available for download from Hal Higdon on the RESOURCES page, including a walking plan. Other plans are listed there as well. Programs can be found on the internet. Some races provide training aids to registrants.
If you’ve been running all summer long, and can easily master 2-3 miles at one time, you can jump into the 2017 TURKEY TROT WITH TRACK DAY 5K training plan for beginners AT WEEK 3. A separate TRACK DAY SCHEDULE provides the workout distance each Monday; run or run/walk that distance on or off the track, wherever you please, if the structured session is not to your liking.
There are 8 full training weeks until The Thanksgiving holiday, the length of many training plans. Don’t put off starting!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
