Resolution Solutions 5k
5k / Sunday, January 1st, 2017 /9:00AM / White Bear Lake, MN
Resolution Solutions 5k is brand new to Tri Fitness this year! You are welcome to run/walk the race as a single race event OR as a part of a NEW series we've developed to help you gear up for 2017 called Resolution Solutions Training Series. This series includes (for FREE) your choice of 3 levels of Training Peaks programs. The races included in this series are Resolutions Solutions 5K on January 1st, Half Fast Half on February 18th, and Campwannarunamileormore on April 22.
Sign up now for the Resolution Solutions 5K and select your training program. Then, sign up for Half Fast Half (3 distances available) and Campwannarunamileormore (3 distances available) at the same time to qualify for the free training program. Should you change your mind on what distances you would like to run, you WILL be able to change this after registration. You will just need to pay the difference.
As mentioned, FREE training will be available to those who sign up for the entire series - beginner, intermediate, and advanced. You will likely move through the levels as you advance through the series. The beginner program is designed for the person with no previous fitness experience, or no structured, consistent exercise program in the past two years. This person is likely going to walk the Resolution Solutions 5K. The intermediate program is tailored toward the individual who is currently walking at least three days a week and at least three miles each session FOR EXERCISE. This will be a walk/run progression with the intent to walk/run the events. With the advanced program, the athlete is already doing a walk/run program and is interested in moving to running all or most of the events.
The training program will come to you through daily emails connected to a training platform called Training Peaks. You will be told what activities you should be doing on any particular day (as well as when your days off will be). You should be able to add notes as to what you did and make comments as to how things are going for you. As you progress through the race series, your fitness level will increase. You will be able to switch to a more advanced program as you are ready. You will just have to let us know when you would like to change programs and the more advanced program will be loaded and available for you.
