Jessica Doyle is in week five of her Couch to 5K program, a slow and steady training program for running a 5K.
Here's an example of a Week Five day:
-- 5 minute warm up
-- Jog for 5 minutes, walk for 2 minutes
-- Jog for 7 minutes, walk 2 minutes.
-- Jog for 5 minutes, walk for 1 minutes.
-- 5 minute cool down.
A big development this week. Jessica has FINALLY selected the 5K that she plans to running. It's the Glow-In-The-Dark run at RFK stadium, Friday, November 9. LivingSocial has partnered with Mercy Corps to use a portion of proceeds to deliver 1,000 solar lanterns to school children in need in Somalia.
Jessica is assembling a team to do the fun-run with her. Want join up? Hit her up on Facebook, Twitter @Financialista, the Tumblr Blog or by email at email@example.com.
One more fitness pitch; consider this A STEP in your training for a 5K. It's not too late to join Team Daddy's Girl for the 5K walk at National Harbor Saturday morning. Andrea Roane, Monika Samtani and Jessica truly are proud to again emcee the Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes. The event begins at 8am, and the walk is at 10. To sign up, you can go stepout.diabetes.org or register the day of the walk at National Harbor.
Final thing... a shout out to viewer Ron Larkin. He just finished Week 5!!!
