Three-Week 5k Training Plan

The 5k (3.1 mile) race is a great distance for beginning, intermediate, or experienced runners. Whether it is your first race or you’re trying to set a new personal record, you can train for a 5k in a relatively short period of time of a few weeks, and if you’re used to running races, strive to improve your time! Here is a three-week training plan that you can use if you’re just getting started or adding a 5k race to your training schedule! We have included a printable pbmb 5k training schedule training schedule that you can download and print.

RACE DAY!

 

During this uncertain time of social distancing, we hope you can join us for a fun workout on May 16, 2020 for the Socially Distant Virtual 5k 2020! I love running races, and have completed half marathons, 10ks, 5ks, and other distances. While I love the feeling of accomplishment of running a half marathon (I’ve run three so far), my favorite distance might be the 5k, because it is a great distance to train for in a short amount of time, and I can continually strive to improve upon my time.

If you use our Palm Beach Moms Blog training schedule, we would love to see your progress and train together! To participate, just share your pictures on social media with the hashtags #sociallydistant5k and #palmbeachmomsblog5k. Good luck; we are excited to train and virtually race together!

 

**If you are new to working out, be sure to consult a doctor before starting a new workout regimen!
