Monday's run was postponed due to a tornado warning, which means Week 3 of Go The Distance will kick off at 6 p.m. Tuesday for a 3-mile run. The group will take off from the Boilermaker finish line.

Even if you're not a part of this year's Go The Distance team, all are welcome to join the runs! For the full 12-week training schedule, click here.

WEEK 3

Here’s a tip: Friction caused by clothing or body parts rubbing together during a run can cause irritation problems. Rubbing on a little petroleum jelly can easily solve the problem.                                                                                                                            

Stretching is not much fun, however it needs to be done to reduce injury. Flexibility is important no matter what form of exercise you participate in. Stretching keeps you flexible. Before you start your run, warm-up with some light stretching, and when you’re run is finished also do some light stretching. Do not force it. You can actually injure yourself by overstretching.

Since you are in your third week of training, it is important to start out your run slowly, even if you are an experienced runner. For the first 3 or 4 minutes of your run, establish your pace that you have been training for. For the last 2 or 3 minutes before you finish your run, slow down a bit. This cooling off period will help muscle stiffness ease for the next day. Give your body time to recover between workouts. Sometimes rest is the best key.

Here is this week's training schedule:

Monday, (May 1) Day 1 - 3.0 mile run start this week. Begin at the Boilermaker Finish Line, left onto York Street, right onto Noyes Street, left onto Graham Ave, right onto Champlin Ave, right on Whitesboro Street, and back to finish line.
