Run 5K In 5 Weeks Training Plan
Train Yourself To Be A Marathon Runner
So you are thinking about running a 5k? If you have ever thought about running a 5k, even if you have never done any running before, you must have looked at it in some depth. While running a 5k race doesn’t compare to the grueling and often unforgiving marathon distance, it’s still fairly tough and requires a high level of personal fitness.
If you are just starting out and are worried about the level of commitment required, remember that this is much easier than running a 10k or a marathon, but it still does require commitment and effort.
However, if you follow the plan and tips given in this book, you can achieve your fitness target in five weeks. It’s not going to be easy, but it will be intensely rewarding and hopefully, even fun.
The 5k race is the most popular distance run, and there are usually thousands of events all around the world happening all through the year. A 5k race is basically a race spread over 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles, which will take an average person about 30 – 60 minutes to complete.
Some people, of course, can do it faster. The fastest time ever recorded for a man completing a 5k was 12 minutes 37 seconds, which was accomplished in 2004 by Ethiopian distance runner Kenenisa Bekele. The fastest women’s time was 14 minutes 16 seconds, which was set by Meseret Defar in Oslo in 2007. These people are super humans, however.
The comparatively short distance means that it has an appeal to most people who would like to start running that just need a focus and a target to aim for. This could provide an excellent motivation to get fit and in good enough shape to start running long distances. Some of the most popular races have tens and thousands of participants, of all ages and from all wakes of life.
When you have accomplished your goal, you will feel very proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished and how far you have come. You will have a great deal of respect for yourself, for not just having dreamt about something, but also actually achieving it.
Every journey, whether long or short, starts with just one small step. Your first step was getting hold of this book, which will serve you as a training manual.
It covers all aspects of running: starting out, choosing the right sort of shoes, understanding all the changes your body will go through, avoiding injuries, ways to improve your fitness and endurance, and ways to achieve your goal, right through to the race day and beyond.
When you finish reading this book, though you may not be ready to run a 5k yet, you will know all about running one, and will be able to get ready for it. This book will provide you with all the necessary information to get ready.
Let the journey begin.
