We’re about 6 weeks from Run MS 2013. If you’re a beginning runner, it’s not too late!
From Fitness Magazine:
“Just starting? Try this! Don’t worry if you’ve never put on a pair of running shoes. This program will get you up and running for at least 30 minutes straight in just six weeks, says Zika Palmer, an elite marathoner, exercise physiologist, and cofounder of ZAP Fitness in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. For each run, aim for a rate of perceived exertion (RPE) that feels like a 5 or 6 on a scale of 1 to 10 so you don’t burn out too soon.”

Although, we all have great training ideas – sometimes it’s best to incorporate the advice of medical professionals. The Mayo Clinic offers this advice:
Doing a 5K run can add a new level of challenge and interest to your exercise program. A 5K run is 3.1 miles. Don’t be daunted by the distance. A 5K run is a great distance for a beginner. And you can prepare for a 5K run in just two months.
Consider using this seven-week 5K run training schedule as your guide. This 5K run training schedule was created by Olympian Jeff Galloway. It’s tailored for beginners or anyone who wants to complete a 5K race. You don’t have to use this training schedule only for a 5K run — you can also adapt it to walk a 5K.

Run MS is April 27th at Cincinnati’s Yeatman’s Cove. See ya there!
