Ever wonder what it takes to train for a Turkey Trot or some other local 5k near you? Well, look no further. We’ve got team TYR athlete and 2016 Olympian Ben Kanute here to help get you prepped and ready for this year’s race.
Coach Kanute’s plan is designed for roughly five weeks of training. So, be sure to give yourself enough time to work out, eat right and score plenty of sleep. Also, if you have any questions about your body or health remember it never hurts to consult your doctor before making additions to your regular workouts.
Don’t forget to keep up with Ben as he continues to race his way around the world!
Hardest race yet. Wouldn’t want it any other way in the Olympics. Gave it my all today, but the fireworks started way earlier than I would have liked, so finished a bit far back. Thanks to everyone for the cheers and support. It was a great experience. #RioOlympics2016 @teamusa @usatriathlon
