I'm starting to train for a 1K fun run..Any tips would be appreciated.


Winning isn't my goal...Should I start out walking? What's a good time that I should shoot for? Running is an absolutely grueling sport. Once this is over, I don't think I'll do anymore running.

How far is 1k? Like 3500 feet?

ETA:
1k = 3280'10"

You want one of these shirts for breathability. Overheating and dehydration are dangerous. Especially over a distance like that.

Get the "Couch to 1k" app

It will train you to be able to run that distance non-stop in just 8 weeks. It's pretty sweet
