With summer rolling around and races happening in person again, I thought this would be the perfect time to dive into all things 5K training. So this week, I’m bringing you the first episode of a two-part series all about getting you ready, and we’re focusing on harnessing the right mindset and on picking a training plan that works for you.
If you’ve started running but haven’t participated in a 5K yet, this is going to be the perfect series for you to tune into. I have people asking me all the time how to know if they’re ready, or if a 5K is something they should even be doing, and if you’re in this camp too, don’t worry because I’m addressing all of it.
Listen in this week to discover whether you’re ready for your first 5K! I’m laying out the top three worst-case scenarios people believe that stop them from even trying, and my tips on what to consider when you’re picking a training plan. And make sure to tune in next week where we’ll be getting into the nuts and bolts of 5K training!
