I've been asked to do a 5k run on Nov. 15th. I've accepted and was wondering what's the best way to train for such a thing? I don't run now, only brisk walking and weight lifting. Last year when I was 244, I was running about 5k on a treadmill but that was long ago and at a heavier set. So, is there a way to train for it without killing my shins on a treadmill beforehand?
No announcement yet.
5k run in three weeks, best way to train?
