So You Wanna Run a 5k… and it’s in One Month

Wow, would you look at how time flies! I swear it was just Thanksgiving like 3 days ago. And now Christmas is over too?! Make it all slow down, please!

I used to always say that you can judge how busy my life is by looking at the state of my bedroom. If my bed is unmade, clothes are everywhere (dirty & clean ones), and I have piles of random papers covering my desk, then you know I’m more than likely running around like a crazy person. Similarly, I’ve noticed the same trend happen with the blog.

More crazy = less bloggy.

Now that 2014 is coming to a close, I look at my calendar and see a blaring note on January 31, 2014. The Color Run 5k!! I am so excited about this race, and I haven’t forgotten about it by any means; I just kind-of, sort-of, haven’t been running. With the exception of today and one time last week… hey, it counts! Oops.Shine Tour 2015So I am inviting you to join me in jumping back on the horse– or rather, running like one– with this 5k plan! Why wait for the New Year to start when  the time is NOW.

Here is the plan I will be following, compliments of Active.com:

For those who may be intimated and never have run a mile before, DO NOT FEAR! The key is the distance NOT the time. If you walk the entire mile, BOOM, you accomplished your mile for the day. If you’re feeling good and want to run the first .5, but walk the last, BOOM, mile complete.

For those professionals out there looking to break a personal record, challenge yourself to pick up the pace a bit, or use this as a tool to incorporate cross-training and strength, but adjust the mileage to fit your needs. Whichever category you fall into, or somewhere in-between, get moving!
