This training group will prepare the beginning or returning runner to complete a 5K (3.1 miles), either using a run-walk-run method or by continuous running. We'll start with 1-mile on September 21, and gradually increase the goal distance each week. Everyone is welcome! We'll have groups for brand new runners (can walk 1 mile or more) and advanced runners (can run 1-mile or more).
We will meet each Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM, September 21 - November 9, 2022, at the Korean War Memorial at Cascades Park, 1001 S Gadsden St. The cost is free! Parking is available at many locations throughout the area.
Wear running shoes and comfortable, breathable running/fitness attire. Bring a water bottle and beach towel/mat for stretching after the run. Please leave valuables in your vehicle.
Note- Participants under age 14 must be accompanied on all runs by an adult.
Training Week 1 started with a 1 minute run:1 minute walk – or 1:1 ratio – for 1 mile. Each week, the number of minutes running increases as the goal distance steps up (i.e. 1:1 for 1 mile, 2:1 for 1.25 mile, etc). These runners progress toward continuously running 3 miles by the 8th week.
These runners complete the goal distance each week using a set 1 minute run:1 minute walk ratio. This won’t change from week to week (i.e. Week 1 is 1:1 for 1 mile, Week 2 is 1:1 for 1.25 mile, etc).
These runners progress toward running 3 miles continuously with little to no walking by the 8th week. They will increase running distance by ¼-mile each week, without taking a walk break if possible, adding roughly 2 to 3 minutes to their running endurance per week.
