Are you training for a 5K race? Or do you have you ever thought about entering to participate in a marathon? My thing is, I've always wanted to participate, and I have in the past, but as of lately, I haven't been in "the best of shape", so I was wondering exactly how I could train for an event like this (because frankly, in the past, things like these kinda "came naturally", y'know, we were all "young and fit", but things have changed a bit as time has progressed! If you know what I mean, lol). So, I did a little research, and I found some good answers: Train in A Group, so that they encourage you to NEVER QUIT! Keep Track of Your Progress, so that you don't hit a Plateau, and Keep Increasing The Amount You Do, and Level of Difficulty Get The Right Running Shoes, so that you Avoid Things like Shin-Splints and Don't Do Overkill, so that your Body Reacts Negatively To The "Sudden Pressure" I wanna know if these tips are the right ones and also, if you have any other tips that you'd like to share with me? I've been training, and I'm getting ready for a 5K that my church is organizing for this October! Help me out!
