RA 101, 5k Training

Hi Snails,

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.

Just remember I don't know how you are feeling.  So know when to say when. :-)

This Wednesday we will run for 6 intervals of 1 minute run and 4 minutes walking.  Plus have 10 minutes of foundation training before we cool down.

Here is our mid week schedule:

Tuesday - Cross Train

Wednesday - 1 min run/4 min walk for 30 minutes plus 10 min foundation

Thursday - 20 min foundation training

Run Happy,

Coach Dede

    Hi Dede- I am going to come, but I think I need to stick with a 30 second interval at first. I hope that is ok and does not slow people down. It seems one minute is a but to high impact at first for now.

      Yes definitely do what your body tells you. You won't slow the group down. When we regroup after the run those in the front will get extra mileage they just see the same thing twice. :-)
