Running your First 5K!

This is the program which I am actually the coach of! The store I work at offers this program every few weeks and I thought it would be fun to share for any of those out there who are wanting to start running, get back into running again, or just want to try something new!

Again if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

*This week the group did great! They were really enthusiastic about running and ready to start to changing their life!*

*Once again the group was amazing! They have been asking questions and really wanting to be part of the running community which makes me super happy! Their pace on Wednesday was also really great! They had negative splits and they stayed pretty consistent! Makes me so happy!*

*I am not sure how much I can say this, but my group this time around is AMAZING! They are really motivated to run and this makes me motivated to teach them! Just this week we had finished up the set and they wanted to keep on going! We ran an extra .25 miles and it was really rewarding and I could see in their faces how proud they were of themselves and each other!*

*They are still going really strong and it makes me have the biggest smile every time I see them! The weather has changed pretty dramatically here, but they are still sticking with the program!*

*Still going super strong! I am so proud of them! This week they were pretty sore after Saturday, but they are staying motivated and really looking forward to the actually race!*

*I have been getting so many questions about how they are going to finish the race, I have to keep telling them that they need to trust their training and realize what they came from to what they are at now!*

*This week the weather really took a turn for the worse but then by the end of the week we were in the mid 50’s and it was great for running! The group is really getting strong and it has been awesome to see them go from hardly running 1 minute to running 6-7 minutes at a time and doing these with such ease!*

*RACE WEEK!!! I am so excited for my 5k’ers!!! They are really nervous but I know they will rock the race! They have been working so hard towards their goal and they will run the whole race! I can’t wait to report back!*
