You’re getting so close to the end of the challenge!
Since your first 5K is coming up soon, today’s tip is in the spirit of crossing that finish line strong and healthy! Coach Jason has some words of wisdom to keep in mind:
“As your race beckons, focus on recovery in the days leading up to the race. Add in a few extra walk breaks if you feel like you need them. Try to sleep more. Don’t do anything too strenuous (outside of running) if possible.
Setting yourself up for success on race day is about more than just the running — it’s about the lifestyle that supports the running.”
You also have strides today, which means you’re tacking on four strides to the end of your run-walk. Each stride should last 20–30 seconds total, with 45–60 seconds of rest after each one. And remember, to do the plank workout, just go here, choose three planks from list, and do each one for 30 seconds, resting one minute between each. As the challenge goes on, try to hold these planks for longer, adding 10 to 15 seconds each week.
You can do this! Good luck today!
