WEEK 4 ON TO THE NEW YEAR 2018-19 5K TRAINING PLAN STARTS Runners: You will be getting down to business the end of this week and running 3 miles on December 29. That’s nearly the full distance of the upcoming race. Thankfully, unlike in 2017, you won’t be doing it on Christmas Eve.
With the prospect of a totally fresh 2019 start in few days, excitement may be building on this long run day. Possibly you’ll have no trouble leaping out of bed in the early morning to begin it with an invigorating workout. Or, after accomplishing nearly every task on your Saturday ‘to-do’ list, you might be looking forward to a calming and relaxing run at day’s end
The December 25 run: walk session is scheduled as 51 minutes in length. Switch with Monday’s or Wednesday’s sessions if this will present a problem.
Walkers: The schedule has been shifted to accommodate Christmas Day, but there’s quite a bit of flexibility, so the non-walking weekday session can be shifted to Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday as needed. Try to keep the high intensity interval training (HIIT) walk early in the week, no later than Tuesday, if you plan to change things up.
Everyone, have a wonderful between-the-holidays week.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
