Fitday Offers Training Tips for a 5K Walk

  1. 1.  Kristin Swanson-Mace leverages more than 25 years of legal experience to serve as a solo law practitioner in Orlando, Florida, where she represents employers and organizations during workers’ compensation claims. Outside of her professional pursuits, Kristin Swanson-Mace is an avid walker and hopes to participate in 5k events in the future. According to the online fitness resource FitDay, there are a number of ways to safely prepare for a 5k walk, such as committing to a reasonable training schedule, working with a partner, and listening to your body.
  2. 2.  Fitday recommends training approximately three days each week and implementing a day of rest between training sessions. In addition to walking sessions, Fitday emphasizes that a balanced training program includes stretching and strength training. Fitday also suggests training with a partner who shares a similar level of dedication and fitness. Along with the social benefit, a training partner will hold you accountable for achieving your goals and help you stay committed.
  3. 3.  While training for a 5k, Fitday notes that it’s also extremely important to be aware of your body’s signals at all times. Walkers and runners should adjust their training routine based on signs of injury or exhaustion, and when they are sick.
