Welcome to the final 5K training week!

Welcome to the final 5K training week!

Happy Monday All!

This was the 1st weekend where we had 70 degree weather and people were out! I won’t lie…I did some slacking on my 5K training this last week (allergy season has been kicking my butt), but I made up for it Sunday. After a serious spin session in the morning I spent the afternoon huffing up the trails of Mt. Toby…glad someone introduced me to that spot.  Some of the uphill was a little rough due to my inability to breathe properly at the moment, but the view at the top was gorgeous! I forgot for a hot second that I wasn’t keen on heights once I got to the top of the tower on the mountain. Whatever you ended up doing this past weekend I hope you had as good of a time as I did…summer dare I say is almost here!

Back to business…our 5K training is almost over…Sunday is the Kringle 5K Candle Chase! I’ve posted below the final workout schedule…remember to do this for 3 days and then some sort of cardio of your choice for 2 other days.

WEEK 6

Pick 3 days to do the following work out

5 minutes of a warm up fast walk

Jog for 3 miles or 30 minutes without stopping

Some of my own personal tips…

I suggest not running on Saturday before the race…I like to always give myself one day of rest so I can get my Forrest on for race day! Also on that note…I suggest not buying a new pair of shoes for a race. I always feel like new sneakers are my magic shoes! However, the last time I used new shoes for a race…I went fast the first mile and then realized my new sneaks were causing a blister on my ankle because I hadn’t broken them in yet. Stick with the shoes you’ve been training in.

AND on a final note…if you’ve been training along congratulate yourself because you’ve already done more than most people! You aren’t in a race with anyone else, but yourself. Do your best and I suggest not quitting after this…keep on pushing for something else! See you Sunday MAY 5TH RACE DAY!
