Legendary Irish Athlete Catherina McKiernan has developed a 12 Week Training Programme for the Grant Thornton Corporate 5K Team Challenge.
The first 6 weeks will start off with walking which will incorporate just a few jogging sections, to get your body up and moving – quickly and easily helping you build a good base level of fitness!
From week 7-12 the programme will continue to build on what you have accomplished so far, but just extending your jogging sections to progress into more continuous running. It may seem impossible at the start, but you will be really amazed to see how quickly your fitness improves. By week 12 you will be ready for your first 5K race. And what better way to celebrate all your hard work alongside your friends and colleagues in this fantastic event.
Following on from the success of the Grant Thornton Corporate 5k Team Challenge, we are delighted to announce that a donation of €4,500 was made to the designated charity St. Vincent de Paul.
