Your first 5K? Tried and True Training!

It’s never too early to start prepping for a race (or to start thinking about training, or thinking about thinking about training). We thought we’d pass along a 5K training plan that’s useful for runners of all ages and abilities. Maybe it’ll be something you can use as summer slowly but surely winds down and we get closer to a time when stepping outside won’t feel like you’re being covered in a hot, wet blanket.

Cool Running’s Couch-to-5K plan

Give it a shot! All it takes is 20-30 minutes, 3 days a week, and after a little over two months you’ll be completing a 5K.

(A few Race4Love staffers will be starting this plan soon and we’ll post updates on their progress.)
