A lot of people have a goal of one day being able to run a 5K. Several of the women in our boot camps set that as a goal and have since accomplished it. Since the biggest 5K in Huntsville, the Liz Hurley Ribbon Run, is coming up soon I was asked to come up with a training program to do a 5K.
This is a very condensed training schedule, so the timeline is a little more aggressive than most are. The program will give you a good idea of how to get ready for the race though. Check it out at the link below:
Preparing for a 5K
The Liz Hurley Ribbon Run is an awesome race and would be a perfect starting place if you have never done a 5K. We have a team going that has walkers, joggers, and runners. If you want to join our team there is a link in that article as well.
