5K Training or Weight Training? (aka, Cardio vs. Resistance)

The other day the wife mentioned that there is going to be a 5K walk/run at Eagle Lake next month.  She threw out the idea, you can run/walk it and the kids & I will walk it, you can come back and join us after you are done.  Sounds good. 

But I have a routine.  MWFS are cardio days, T/Th are resistance days. 

The competitive nature in me wants to do well on the 5K.  Do I really think I am going to run the whole way? Nahhh.  Could I win? Not a snowballs chance! But I will know if I did my best and did I prepare the best.

So back to my routine.  Do I just go to cardio with general calesthenics thrown in? So my new schedule would be M-S cardio with T/Th Calesthenics (pushups, squats, ab work, etc…) I really don’t know. 

Also I am intrigued by the 100 Push up challenge I saw over on John is Fit and at Andrew is Getting Fit.  So I am wondering if I should lay off the weights in favor of body weight exercise.  Ahhhh! I hate it. 

SO… I think I am off to Couch to 5k for a training program and to have a conversation with my awesome spouse about working out times.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings…

May you be covered in the dust of the rabbi Jesus

  1. C25K rocks! Just be careful, you might get hooked on running.

  2. Good luck on the 5k! I had a goal of running in one this year, but I personally don’t want to do it until I can at least make a go of almost running the whole way – right now though it would be a lot of walking I’m afraid. We’ll see…
