8 Weeks to a 5K

8 Weeks to a 5K

Spring is here, and with it perfect work-out weather. A great way to get yourself energized to exercise is to sign up for a walk/run race to compete in. The thought of competition will keep you going and the excitement of completion will get you going again.
I found a really good beginner’s plan for training to speed walk or jog a 5K (3.1 mile) race in just 8 weeks on the Runner’s World website. Check it out! (note: make sure you read to the end for the 8 week plan)
