EERIE ERIE 5K 10K TRAINING TIPS

SIGN UP FOR THE RACE HERE

WEEK 1

BUILD THE FOUNDATION AND THE HOUSE CAN STAND STRONG ON IT

This plan, as all plans, is just a recommendation. As with the start of any exercise program, consult with a physician before beginning anything new.

Each week, I will provide different tips to help you run towards your goal. If you are new to the running world, start slow and if you have been running for a while, these guidelines will be good reminders.

In addition to running, I highly recommend a simple and basic strength training and core training program to supplement your running. Strength training will make your bones, ligaments, and tendons stronger so you can run …For Your Life™

If you have specific questions regarding your training, please contact me. As a certified running coach I might have some tools in my toolbox to help you build a better running style or fitness level.

5K TIP OF THE WEEK

Week 1 – Focus on Foundation. Build a good plan. Keep a balance and build fitness …For Your Life™

This week- Just go run and see how far you can go and see how long it takes until you need to stop or walk.  Do it twice.

A 5K can be a good starting run or it can be a good way to test your fitness if you are fit. The distance is short enough that most people can do it with some practice and it is long enough to give your heart a good test.

If you are a competitive runner (with yourself or others) this distance is a fun one.

10K TIP OF THE WEEK

Week 1 – Focus on Foundation. Build a good plan. Keep a balance and build fitness …For Your Life™

This week- I am assuming you have some running experience. And if not, read the 5K plan for this week to determine if a 10K is a realistic goal for the next 7 weeks.

If you have been running, go run your fastest 5K. Add in at least 2 other runs this week of up to 4 miles if possible. Time your runs and see where your times are to start. We can improve over the next 7 weeks. There is more fun for you in week 2.
