WEEK 10 TURKEY TROT WITH TRACK DAY 5K Beginner Training Plan starts Monday. These workouts may be difficult in that you are cutting back on mileage and time spent training after 9 straight weeks of ramping up. You will need rested legs to make your best effort on race day, so resist the temptation to cheat and accept the taper as a wise tactic.
If you have come to rely on this higher level of activity for weight control be aware that you might need to cut back a bit on caloric intake. Take the extra time to prepare for the upcoming holiday. If you are traveling to your Turkey Trot, double check arrangements and start packing, if you haven’t already. Get your costume together if that’s in your race day plans!
Enjoy the building excitement that comes with running a goal race. You've earned it.

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.
