    I spent some time chasing a 5k goal. The most helpful workout I did in preparation was intervals. I would break down the 5k into 400, 800 or 1600m intervals and run each interval at my goal race...

    What I used to do with my kids when they were that age is play: I'll do everything you do. Let me tell you, you will get one heck of a full body workout from that!
