If you have ever thought about running a 5k, even if you have never done any running before, you must have looked at it in some depth. While running a 5k race doesn’t compare to the grueling and often unforgiving marathon distance, it’s still fairly tough and requires a high level of personal fitness. When you have accomplished your goal, you will feel very proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished and how far you have come. You will have a great deal of respect for yourself, for not just having dreamt about something, but also actually achieving it.
Every journey, whether long or short, starts with just one small step. Your first step was getting hold of this book, which will serve you as a training manual.
It covers all aspects of running: starting out, choosing the right sort of shoes, understanding all the changes your body will go through, avoiding injuries, ways to improve your fitness and endurance, and ways to achieve your goal, right through to the race day and beyond.
When you finish reading this book, though you may not be ready to run a 5k yet, you will know all about running one, and will be able to get ready for it. This book will provide you with all the necessary information to get ready.
