Our next challenge is a 5K every day in May! The weather has improved so I want you to go out and hit the pavement! Let’s see if we can walk, jog or run a 5k every day in May. Five kilometers is equal to 3.11 miles. The only way your 5k counts is if your feet are hitting the ground. If weather doesn’t allow you to go outside, then a treadmill is acceptable, but I’d prefer you get outside. Bicycles, skates, scooters will not count!
There are many benefits to walking/running outside. The impact from walking/running will improve your bone density. Being outside has been known to improve your mood. Walking and running are great forms of cardiovascular exercise so it will improve your heart health, reduce your risk of disease, and helps you burn calories! Do I need to say any more?
Get out there and keep track of how many days in the month of May that you complete a 5K!
I’ve got my walking buddy! Get a friend to do it with you! You’ll be more successful!
