Run Your Best 5K With This 6 Week 5K Training Plan

August 01, 2014 2 min read

photo 1 (3) So you wanna run your first 5k? But, the problem is that you absolutely HATE running. Do not worry, you are not alone! In high school, I was a sprinter on our local track team and did not dare do any distance running.. until I decided to sign up for my first 5k-the annual McGuire's Irish Pub Run. Half of the thousands of people there running it had a beer in hand - at 9:30am - and the other half were dressed in costumes (my husband and I!). The problem was that I f*cking hated running, though later I enjoyed running so much, that I ran up until two days before my due date during pregnancy. I knew I had to run then, to burn off all of those chips & queso I indulged in during my second trimester. photo 1 (3) Though, I had LOTS of fun doing it because my husband waited on my slow ass, I ran it in a horrible 45 minute-ish range and decided that I needed lots of help-and training. I could not even keep my breathing up! So, I created a mini 5k training plan to prepare me for the next year's race. And I did it religiously.. And did a whole lot better with the next race! Here is a mini 5k workout plan to get ready for your first race! It will condition your body to get used to running longer distances by doing a little more running each day. Then, after you have mastered the plan, try doing it faster! It is very simple, nothing special, but gives you a good goal to start with. Each week has its own interval of running. Try to complete it once a morning. If you cannot do it everyday, then try maybe 5 times per week-3 days at the very least! 6 Week 5K Training Plan Week 1: Run for 5 Minutes; Walk 2 minutes. Repeat for 6 sets. Week 2: Run for 7 Minutes; Walk 90 seconds. Repeat for 5 sets. Week 3: Run for 10 Minutes; Walk 1 minute.  Repeat for 4 sets. Week 4: Run for 15 Minutes; Walk 2 minutes. Repeat for 3 sets. Week 5: Run for 25 Minutes; Walk 90 seconds. Repeat for 2 sets Week 6: Run for 30 Minutes! WOOHOO!  Repeat only once.   And always remember this.. photo 1 (3)

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
