5K Training Plans: I recommend using a free app like Map My Walk, Nike Run Club, or Strava to count your mileage and time.  You can also connect to friends using the same apps and encourage each other.

Beginners: This is a 3 day/week walk or jog your first 5K plan.  This plan assumes that you can walk for 20 minutes (at any pace) from the start.  If you cannot, please begin by training for the 1-mile walk.

Joggers/Fast-Walkers (You're already walking/jogging). 

Runners - you want to run the 5K and you're already running/jogging - you could run/jog it now, but would like to go faster or run the whole time.

Stretching exercises (Thank you, Mrs. St. Thomas for these!)
