8 weeks to 5k week 4

posted in: Uncategorized 1
Hello again everyone! We are at Week 4, halfway through our training program.  There will continue to be a steady increase in the number of minutes we are running each week.  Just know that it is the ultimate goal to be able to run that many minutes without stopping to walk, but if you can’t it’s no big deal!  This is a general plan to try to fit as many different people as possible, and we are all at different ability levels.  Please don’t be discouraged if you can’t run for the full amount of time.  Take a break to walk or speed walk, even if just for a few seconds, and then jump back in.  The important thing is to continue to push yourself, at whichever level you may be. That being said, here are this week’s workouts:
