WEEK 3 ON TO THE NEW YEAR 2017 5K TRAINING PLAN starts tomorrow. You will be getting down to business the end of this week and running 3 miles. That’s almost the full distance of next week’s race, and you’ll be doing it on a day which happens to be Christmas Eve and the start of Hanukkah. Very busy.
However, it’s such an exciting day that you may have no trouble leaping out of bed in the early morning to begin the last minute crush of preparation with an invigorating workout. Or, after accomplishing nearly every task on your list of to-do’s, you might be looking forward to a calming and relaxing run at day’s end. If contemplating this Saturday run stresses you beyond what’s healthy, switch it with Friday’s 20 minute walk or Thursday’s run/walk. No problem.
Have a great week.
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. In 1978 I began participating in 10K 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 and longevity.
