First (or Fastest) 5K | Week Five

Heather Stephens

Finding a dedicated training partner with an identical vision for success or shared goal can be quite the challenge, but partnering up with a buddy for an occasional run or strength training session is a breeze. Training with a friend will hold you accountable to your daily grind and keep you focused on your long term training goals. This week as you continue to increase your training load, ping a partner and share your new tips and tricks!

*For a mid week workout, check back to week 1 with 6 x 200 at the end of an easy run.

STRENGTH FOR ALL
Team work makes the dream work. Grab a buddy and hit the gym! Working out with someone else increases accountability and spurs better results for the long term. These six partner exercises can be done in lieu of the Dirty Dozen or in addition, if you're feeling ambitious!

RECOVERY FOR ALL
Post-Workout/Race Recovery with Jasyoga. Take the time to reset after each hard session this week. This ten minute session will ease any lingering tension in your body and help neutralize your system so that you can recover effectively. 

RUNSPIRATION
“Working with a group is the surest way to catch the running bug, or if you’ve already got it, to take you’re training to the next level. It makes the hard parts bearable, and the good parts incredible.” – Kate Grace
