Run/walk training

 

As a beginner I have begun the 8 week training for a 5K. I walked yesterday and today was to walk 7 times for a minute with a 2 minute walk between each. I only attempted 5 run minutes with the walk time longer. Hills are a part of the route I do not want to change necessarily. Any suggestions?

    Congratulations on signing up for your first 5k.  IF you are new to running, I reccomend starting out with the Run/Walk Method, and graduating to a 5K training program. 

     

    Good Luck with your training!





    Believe you can do it. Think no other way but “Yes you can.”
    The human body is capable of considerably more physical endurance than most of us realize!!
