Here is the WEEK 1 SCHEDULE that builds on the November Turkey Trot Training Plan. The PDF of the full plan can be accessed by clicking here. Today is the first day in which a run is scheduled. If you missed the Sunday recovery walk or the Lower Body Strength exercises, not a problem. The actual day of your 5K Race is up to you...either New Year's Eve December 31 or New year's Day january 1, 2016. The truly full plan would have started Nov 23; so that plus the short last week push the limit of preparation for a first time competitor to taper. If you perform the dynamic warm-ups, post-run stretches, and foam rolling, you should be good to run the entire 3.1 miles.
If you finish this plan, 2016 could be your BEST EVER START TO A NEW YEAR!!!!
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.
