WEEK 5 "ON TO THE NEW YEAR" TRAINING PLAN starts today!
You might be discouraged and feel that getting out to walk today is difficult. Maybe you slacked off and did not actually follow the plan over the long weekend and missed the Christmas Eve and/or the December 26 runs. Quit moping around feeling guilty and get your 3 mile run in TODAY. Tomorrow is a non-running day. You may not finish with as good a time on your New Year race, but you will run with confidence knowing you have covered nearly the same distance before your 5K on New Year's Eve or Day. Stick with the plan! DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF. You can walk during the 3 mile training run or the actual race if needed. Your race time will suffer a bit, but you will have recorded a finish in a 5K RACE!!!! That is a great incentive for doing better in your next 5K or your 2016/2017 NEW YEAR'S Race!
GOOD LUCK on RACE DAY!
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.
