RA 101, 5k Training

Hi Snail Ladies,

Remember, the second most important thing in choosing the right shoe, is choosing the left one. - High School Coach to his runners.  lol

Since we are starting to run longer we will start to feel different things in our legs, feet, and the rest of our body.  You must know when to push through the soreness or stop because you are in pain.  Know your limits - be your body's coach.  Is this an old injury that has not completely healed?  Is it bad mechanics?  Proper shoes? What ever the question and answer is if you are in pain STOP, rest and heal.  Tending to a pain a couple days is much better then being sidelined half of the year. 

This Saturday we will run the San Gabriel River Trail for 40 minutes.  8 intervals of 1 minute run and 4 minutes walking.  We will jump on the trail south of the park.

Thursday - 20 Minute foundation training

Friday - Rest

Saturday - 40 minutes run/walk

Sunday - Walk

      You guys are funny. I agree they are very tasty. Watermelon is my favorite. Just have to remind myself it isn't candy.

    Ok I get it coach- I stopped I swear (took it really easy these last few days) ;) But, now I am feeling good- and hoping those new shoes will make a difference....see you Saturday. On that subject- did they say something about breaking shoes in? I will try to wear them at home today and tomorrow. Should that be enough? Hope so.
