WEEK 3 ON TO THE NEW YEAR 2018-19 5K TRAINING PLAN STARTS Runners: you will be continuing on a rather leisurely schedule and at the end of this week only running 2 miles. You won’t be asked to cover the full distance of the end of the year event until December 29. But it’s possible that the rest of your life will be intensely busy, in a good way, this week.
Walkers: you should be settling into a pattern of 4 days of walking 30 minutes plus a longer Saturday session, which will be repeated next week.
But it’s possible that both walkers and runners will find the rest of life will be intensely busy, in a good way, this week building up to holiday celebrations and vacations. This contrast is the express purpose of these two plans. That is, to help you stay on a schedule that is not terribly demanding, but which provides sufficient structure to motivate aerobic physical activity leading to a year-end (or year-beginning) event. As noted in an earlier post, training is set at a “keep open” level.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the last full week before December 25, perhaps using training sessions as personal time to unwind and de-stress.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

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.
