How long should you plan to run?
It depends on your goals.
If you are planning to run for 5K or 10K and you want to run 2 hours, you need to do two hours, one hour and one hour.
If, on the other hand, you plan on running 5K and running 2 hours you need only two hours.
What do I do if I run late?
If you plan a 5, 10, or 1K and are late for your run, your time should be included in your training.
For example, if you plan an 11:00 a.m. run, you could include your time in your 5K training plan.
What to bring for a run?
If your training plan includes a 10k or a 5-mile run, it might be wise to bring water bottles and snack bars, as well as extra clothes.
Also, if your training is a 10-mile or shorter run, bring a warm-up jacket, gloves, and running shoes.
