Welcome to Week 5 of our #BigDamJourney training! We are now over halfway through our schedule—unbelievable! If you haven't started training yet, it's not too late to hop into this plan, enhance your endurance, and come prepared and injury-free to the starting line!
In Week 5, we're back to doing fractions! Just like before, we're building up the distance just a bit. The first "on" day, you'll begin with a 1/2 mile jog, then walk 1/4 mile, then finish with a 3/4 mile jog. On the next run day, you'll jog 1 mile, walk 1/4 mile, then finish with another 1 mile jog.
On Saturday this week, you'll get to take a 2.25 mile jog! Make sure to do a quick 5-minute walking warmup beforehand, and then pace yourself! Like the previous weeks, all the days in between run days are rest days! It's a brand new month, which means it's the perfect time to find a new class or sport or activity to join!
