Can you believe we’re a month into our 5K training plan? If you’ve been training since week 1, you and your pooch should be feeling pretty good by now. Think about it – you’ve worked up to jogging and running 2.0 – 2.5 miles in each 30 minute session!
This week, we’ll continue to increase endurance and stamina by running for longer durations and by increasing session lengths to 35 minutes. Kick it up a notch at the end of session 3 with a 2-minute sprint! It’s still hot out there, so don’t forget to include mid-workout water breaks for both you and your dog.
New to training but don’t think you’ll be race ready for the GlowDOGGlow 5K on September 23rd? We encourage you start at the beginning of our plan and slowly work your way up. Remember to visit your veterinarian before starting any workout program for specific training advice for your dog’s age, breed, physical health, and personality.
