WEEK 1, 'ON TO THE NEW YEAR 2018-19 5K TRAINING PLANS START TODAY. You have a had a bit of time to rest up after the Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. This plan will ease you back into the routine of training. RUNNERS: The runs take you back to you early training with run: walk sessions rather than continuous runs. You can do this. WALKERS: This is the first time a plan has been prepared for you. It’s a straight-forward program, borrowed from VeryWellfit.com, in which you walk 5 days a week. Each week the short sessions become progressively longer by only 5 minutes and the weekend long walk by 5-15 minutes.
Checking off each day’s workout as it is completed will ground you during these hectic December days and allow you to end 2018 on a positive health note and enter 2019 with confidence.
Whether running or walking give these plans a try, if you’d like some structure to the next 4+ weeks, to be able to enjoy a fun 5K event as the old year gives way to the new.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
The full plans are posted on the RESOURCES page.

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.
