6 Week Running Plan

All you need is 30 minutes, some good running shoes, and some sidewalk.

This plan is a 6 week running and strengthening plan. You can actually switch it up if you would rather your Sunday or Monday be a rest day. I personally like having a rest day on the weekend.

Beginners: if you cannot run the entire 30 minutes, that’s okay! Start with the beginners running plan here.

Important tips:

  • Get good shoes! I cannot express the importance of good running shoes. Go to a local running store to have your form, step and pronation evaluated. They will fit you for the best shoes to prevent injury. (Here is a list of these types of stores)¬†(coming soon)
  • Don’t over-do it. If your body really hurts, go slower; but, if you’re just out of breath, push through it.
  • Breatheeeeee. In through the nose (to open your lungs) and out through your mouth. Your muscles need oxygen for energy. It makes a difference.
  • Stretch stretch stretch!! Do it. Otherwise, you’re asking for an injury.

Be fit!
