Couch to 5K to Half Marathon Week 4, 5 and now 6!

Good grief the time is passing so quickly around here! Fall is in the air and as quickly as the leaves blow around in the slight chill of the breezes that blow so do the days blur by. The hustle and bustle of the season is upon us. We have football season in full swing and homecoming so the past several weeks have been all consuming. 

All that said, I wouldn’t trade any of it for a thing!

In amongst all the other things going on our training has not slacked off at all! I am a little behind in sharing the training plans so let me catch you all up!

We had a great Week 4 Group Run followed by some great nutrition talk with one of my dear friends.

If you are interested in learning more about Juice Plus+ or to place an order for the Trio Blend so you can be sure you are getting in all your fruits and veggies each day follow the link below:


Week 4 workouts:

Start with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk. Jog 90 Seconds, Walk 90 Seconds Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 3 Minutes Jog 90 Seconds, Walk 90 Seconds Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 3 Minutes Total Workout = 28 Minutes

Week 5’s workout wass a little longer with longer segments of jogging. Make sure you get in all three workouts if possible each week this will help increase endurance as we progress further into the program! Don't get discouraged if you have a bad run or a tough time, even the most experienced runner will have a tough run from time to time. It will get harder before it gets easier but eventually it will be easier. Keep Going! Don't Stop! You've got this!!

We talked about stretching and paying attention on our runs to look for God and to recognize God Moments. We also got our Run for God T-Shirts and we are excited to begin wearing them for our training runs!

Week 5 workouts:

Workout #1, #2, & #3 Start with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk. Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 90 Seconds Jog 5 Minutes, Walk 2 Minutes Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 90 Seconds Jog 5 Minutes, Walk 3 Minutes Total Workout = 34 Minutes


This week we will be in week 6 of the couch to 5K portion of this training plan. We will talk about the common weight loss misconceptions and we plan to walk our new race route to get familiar with it. 


Week 6 will also have three workouts:

Start with a brisk 5-minute warm-up walk.
Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 90 Seconds
Jog 5 Minutes, Walk 2 Minutes
Jog 3 Minutes, Walk 90 Seconds
