5K Training Log

5K Training Log | CE Project | Scoop.it
Google Drive lets you store up to 15GB of your stuff for free, access them from anywhere, and collaborate with others.
Alacia Romack's insight:

My project was difficult to continually add my research to my Scoop.it page, so I created a log of all of the times I exercised and details on what activities I did so that you could see exactly how I spent my time "researching" and what my project ended up being. I am so proud that I actually accomplished my goal of running a 5K. Hopefully this is helpful in seeing the training routine that worked for me and hopefully it will work for you too!

Why a healthy lifestyle could save your sanity

Why a healthy lifestyle could save your sanity | CE Project | Scoop.it
We know that adopting a healthy lifestyle, like not smoking, exercising regularly, and keeping our weight down, yields long term benefits.

Alacia Romack's insight:

This article was great affirmation for me in reminding me why I'm doing the project that I am. We all know that living a healthy lifestyle has benefits, but I wasn't aware of just how much healthy choices can impact your life. Even some good choices are better than none.

Goal Setting - Powerful Written Goals In 7 Easy Steps!

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 23, 2013 1:30 AM

Too many of us treat goal setting the same way. We dream about where we want to go,
but we don’t have a map to get there.

What is a map? In essence, the written word.

What is the difference between a dream and a goal? Once again, the written word.

But we need to do more then simply scribble down some ideas on a piece of paper. Our
goals need to be complete and focused, much like a road map, and that is the purpose
behind the rest of this article.

How a Smartphone Can Help You Get Fit

How a Smartphone Can Help You Get Fit | CE Project | Scoop.it
If you need help sticking to your diet and a workout schedule, your smartphone is a great fitness tool with or without apps.

 

If today is the day you decide to start living more healthfully, use your phone to help you get to your goal. With the fitness and dieting apps available on your smartphone, healthy living is simpler than you think. You won’t have stress because all you need is available to you on your mobile device, whether you’re counting calories or simply working out.

Training for your first 5K

Training for your first 5K | CE Project | Scoop.it

In three months, you could run a 5K even if you have never run in your life.

 

If you are otherwise healthy, 12 weeks of training is all you need in order to make that 5K not just doable but enjoyable, says Bill Pierce, co-author of “Run Less Run Faster” and a longtime marathoner.

Alacia Romack's insight:

This video was extremely helpful in teaching me the do's and don'ts of running! It saved me from quite a few petty injuries that could have developed into things much more serious had I not taken care of them. Many times, beginning runners experience lots of aches and pains because they aren't using proper running form or technique and taking the time to watch this video saved me from all of those things.

When Exercise Turns Deadly

When Exercise Turns Deadly | CE Project | Scoop.it
We're told to exercise to stay fit and healthy, but sometimes training routines turn deadly.

Via Peter Mellow
Alacia Romack's insight:

Caution!! As with anything else, too much can be detrimental to your well-being. This article gives warning of high-intensity workouts and how to avoid major health issues that could be sparked by too much exercise at a high level. As much as I want to incorporate working out into my daily routine, I know that I have an "all or nothing" personality and this article was extremely resourceful when it comes to setting healthy boundaries and knowing how to properly take care of myself.

So You Want to Start...Working Out in the Morning

So You Want to Start...Working Out in the Morning | CE Project | Scoop.it

"Over the years I’ve grown to love exercising in the morning. It frees up my evenings, leaves me fewer excuses for skipping out on a workout, and helps me feel more alert throughout the day. Research shows morning workouts can also improve sleep, acuity, and productivity, as well as positively impact diet and exercise habits."

 

However, just because I love morning workouts doesn’t mean I leap out of bed at the sound of my alarm, eager to exercise every day. Even us morning people might find it tough to head out for a run before the sun rises or attend a 6AM burpee bootcamp. I’ve skipped my fair share of early workouts, but I’ve also gotten quite good at not skipping them too, thanks to a little strategic planning, preparation and positive thinking.

Alacia Romack's insight:

I find that it's difficult to find time in the evenings for me to work out, but waking up early in the mornings is difficult as well. This article is great because it gave me some tips on how to help get into a morning routine and motivate myself to get up and going with my day. I was able to get my workout in and make the most of my evenings.

Alacia Romack's insight:

This gives great structure for someone who hasn't ever trained for a 5K before. You can follow it as closely or as loosely as you'd like, but it gives a great start and something to work off of.

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, January 27, 2013 9:31 AM

The couch to 5K strategy is a great program for those looking to become more fit and active. The online and web version guides for C25K are user friendly and I can endorse them personally having recently completed my first 5K.  If you're over 50 see your doctor first.
