A race is a great way to get results because it gives you a goal date to accomplish something. It doesn’t have to be a big race; it can even be as short 5k (3.1 miles), like the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women happening May 5 in New York. Proceeds go to support research on women’s cancers. (Lucille Roberts is a sponsor, and we’ll be leading the warm-up on the day of the race!) Even if you aren’t a runner, you can start your training with fast-paced walking and then progress to intervals of walking and running. You’ll work your way up to running the whole distance in no time!
Just because you are preparing for a race, you don’t have to give up toning and zumba classes. Continuing these classes will be good for conditioning your muscles, keeping you in shape, and getting you closer to your goal. This may even help you get your healthy eating on track. The better your performance gets, the more likely you are to want to take care of your body.
So, this spring, consider giving yourself a little challenge–sign up for a race!
