July 1, 2019

This is a continuation in our Couch to 5K series, leading up to Community VNA’s 17th annual 5K Run/Walk to Remember. As a reminder, registration is now open, and we welcome walkers of all abilities to participate. We hope to see you on Sunday, August 4, 2019 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.

As the weather gets warmer, consider your running clothes. Synthetic fibers made for exercising in the heat can keep you cooler by evaporating sweat faster than cotton. Look for loose fitting, light colored clothing. 

Now for your runs!

For Week 3, start with a brisk 5 minute walk, followed by two repetitions of 1 ½ minutes of running, 1 ½ minutes of walking, 3 minutes of running, and 3 minutes of walking.

You’ve got this!
