‘SAINTS DAYS’ 5K & 10K TRAINING PLAN STARTS TODAY It's Super Bowl Sunday, so it might be wise to get your recovery walk in early to leave the remainder of the day to enjoy the fun and excitement, watch commercials, gather with friends.
The calendar is counting down to February 14 and St. Valentine’s Day! That means the first of the Saints’ Days Races, the 5K, could potentially be scheduled as early as this Saturday for some runners and walkers. You may wish to run/walk a custom event using Earned Runs bibs or in an organized competition this day rather than in Week 5 or 6.
If weather forecasts of extreme cold or snowy conditions threaten to prevent your participation in an organized event you may be out the registration fee. However, that shouldn’t stop you from accomplishing a goal race. Schedule a personal event on another day of the week and pin on the bib or fold it in a pocket. Early morning before work, school, or other necessary appointments are scheduled is a perfect time for a race. Later in the day may work even better, as your mental energy can be focused on competition.
At the end of the week you will have spent one full month in training. Congratulations.
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.
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.
