K is for 5K
Have you noticed how many people are running 5K races now? They've become very popular. Yet our nation has an epidemic of obesity. I'm not sure I understand how both things can be on the rise.
My oldest son married a runner. So Bill has begun running too.
He participated in Extreme Rampage with his brother-in-law, Caleb Benge, and sister-in-law, Sarah Benge Clifton.
One of the healthiest times of my life was when I ran. So I've decided to begin running again. I probably won't do a 5K, but we'll see what happens.
Here's my plan for transitioning from walking to running.
Monday: Run 3 min/Walk 2 min; Repeat six times.
Wednesday: Run 3 min/Walk 2 min; Repeat six times.
Saturday: Run 3 min/Walk 2 min; Repeat six times.
Run-Walk Workout: Warm-up by walking five minutes at a brisk pace. Begin my run/walk intervals. Then cool down and walk last five minutes.
Do you run? I'd love to hear your suggestions.
