8 Weeks to 5k: Week Before Huffing for Stuffing Week!

posted in: Uncategorized 0

Thanks to everyone for your hard work over the last eight weeks! For this week, aim to get 3 runs in of 20+ minute intervals with a 1 minute break for 30-40 minutes total.  If you can go for 30-40 minutes without taking a break it’s even better!  2 days this week do cross training or walking for 20-30 minutes.  That takes us up to the Week of Huffing for Stuffing!

During the week of Huffing for Stuffing, run two miles and take the rest of the week off. I would suggest running Monday and taking the next two days off! You really need to get that full recovery in before race day!

Next Thursday on race day, you should come dressed in layers. You can always take layers off, if your cold your stuck cold! Hats, gloves, wind resistant light jacket, and a base layer are recommended!

You will definitely want to warm up before the race so jog some laps around the area to get your blood flowing and muscles warm!

Thanks again and we will see you Thursday for the race!!!!
