Here’s a 5K Training Plan to Celebrate Global Running Day!
I don’t know about you, but my love for running always seems to increase when the snow melts and the warm weather arrives. With Global Running Day (aka National Running Day) not too far away, I wanted to make sure I was fully prepared for this fun running holiday.
Sure, I’ve run all winter long, but only on the treadmill. I’ve dominated Orangetheory-style workouts, but I haven’t run very much outside or at my usual “longer” distances. As a result, I’ve pretty much only done interval training for the past few months. Of course, this means I’m not in any type of “endurance” shape right now. You know what they say: If you don’t use it, you lose it! Obviously, this isn’t a big deal, and I know I can get back to my usual running routine with some training. Therefore, I created this 5K training plan with the hope of it keeping me on track for celebrating on June 5th!

When is Global Running Day?
Global Running Day is celebrated annually on the first Wednesday of June. This year, it’s June 5, 2019. Be sure to mark your calendars! It’s a great way to celebrate your love for running. That feeling of knowing that people from all over the world are doing the same is so cool. I mean, isn’t it great to be a part of something much bigger? I think so!
If you’ve never participated, runners of all ages and abilities pledge to take part in some type of running activity on that day. It can be any form of running or distance from trail or treadmill running to a single mile or much longer distance. That said, I plan to run a 5K to celebrate. And if you’re interested in joining me, here’s a training plan to get you started. Happy running!
