Sounds of Fall and the Rise of the 5K
The seasons are changing, and I like it. School bells are ringing. Football is on TV. The crisp morning air sings of the possibility of wearing a sweater to work. More importantly…If your desire is to run a 5K race in the near future, chances are there is one close by every weekend from here on out till the end of the year.
According to Jason Fitzgerald, a 2:44 marathoner and running coach,
The 5K might be one of those perfect events â€“ it’s long enough to be considered a â€œdistanceâ€ race but short enough to push yourself really hard.
Registering for a 5K is a good way to begin or continue a love affair with running. And whether you are a beginning, intermediate or advanced runner, we all want to run stronger and healthier, right?
If you have a 5K race on your race calendar this fall, NOW is the time to start taking your training seriously. Jason Fitzgerald spotlights speed development in this post, and I strongly encourage you to take a look.
