How to Train for a 5K

Let the Training Begin 1 of 11

Congratulations on your decision to run a 5k! If you've never participated in a competitive race before or run much at all, it's going to take some planning and practice. The most important aspect of 5k training is to believe in yourself and stay committed to your goals. This helps prevent early burn out, the main reason people stop training. Ask a friend to be your running buddy, and you'll have even more success in sticking to your plan!
