5K Training Class
What to Expect: To run a 5K!
This 10-week program will begin on February 10. It includes 3 days a week of running with our group on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 5:30 pm. It is recommended to have 2 full rest days a week and use your other 2 days to participate in another form of exercise (yoga, weight lifting, swimming, etc.). The program will be adjusted to meet each individual’s needs to the best of our ability. The first 4 weeks will include walk/run intervals to build endurance.
The following 6 weeks will be focused on distance up to 3.1 miles (5K). Running will be done OUTSIDE (weather permitting) so please prepare with proper attire. It is also recommended you have properly fitted running shoes. Cassie will be using the Map My Run app to track distance and times (it is a free app and comes highly recommended).
Be prepared to push yourself!
Be prepared to support and motivate others!
Prepare to accomplish an amazing goal and get your body moving!
