Intern Running group/5K

Welcome to the BP Intern Running Group!

Sign up today and start moving! The running club will run for 6 weeks (or more if you keep it going) to train for a virtual 5K on Friday, July 24th!  You will have until Sunday, July 26th to log in all your workouts on to the Strava app.

Here is how you get started right away:

  • Sign-up on the Strava  app and join the BPFC Intern Runners Group and the BPFC Runners Group (this is the regular fitness center running group--you can belong to both)
  • Once signed up, start running! 
  • Give shout outs and encouragement  to your fellow interns!
  • More running info and instruction is available on the BP Fitness Running Webpage

Scroll down this page for the training calendars to help you plan your runs--for either a beginner, intermediate or advance runner/walker. 
  
Take pictures of your runs as you train for the 5K --you can post on the intern Yammer page or e-mail to Tara.evans@bp.com

 A virtual 5k event will be created in the Strava app as well! Check out instructions below!

What do the Training Calendars include?

  • Six weeks of training calendars are available for three levels: ​​​

Beginner, Moderate and Advanced

  • All assigned run/walk workouts are focused on time, as opposed to distance. 

  • Time-focused training helps mitigate environmental factors on a run.
    • For example: under high humidity and high heat conditions, an outdoor run will be more physically taxing and mentally tougher to push through.   

  • ​​​​​​​Tracking training volume by time allows for the runner to get a feel for their form and to focus on their effort (instead of distance or pace).
Find out which group you belong in.

Day 1 is the same for all three calendars and consists of a mile time trial.


Results from the mile time trial will suggest which training calendar you should follow:   
  • If it takes you over 14 minutes to finish the mile, then you will follow the BEGINNER calendar.

  • If you complete the mile between 10 - 14 minutes, then check out the MODERATE calendar.

  • If you finish the mile in under 10 minutes, then see the ADVANCED calendar for your training regimen.​​​​​​​
