Who has time to train for a 5k when your every-day to-do list is a marathon-long? Although you may have to wake up an hour earlier to start your day, your body will thank you. The CDC states that regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Some of the benefits include controlling your weight, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, strengthening your bones and muscles and improving your mental health and mood.
There’s never been an easier way to train for a 5K! Do each set 3-5 times per week and you will be on your way to a happy and successful 5K.
- Run/walk at a comfortable pace, but make sure to push yourself a little.
- Listen to your body and take breaks when necessary. Even take one or two days a week off. This will let your body recover, which will in turn make you stronger.
- Find a training buddy. It’s even more fun if you train with someone else!
- What better way to start your lifetime of healthy living than by running The Color Run?
