It's the final week, the countdown is on. The coaches can see your self-belief has grown and many of you have found that inner self-belief that you are now ready for your final run.

We know you can do it, now it is time for you to achieve this goal! This is also the time to enjoy all the work you have done, you deserve to pat yourself on the back.

90% of the work is done. This time next week you will be getting ready to run the whole distance. By now you have done just about all the physical work that you need to do in preparation for the 5k run so now we want to address what to do next week to help be successful on Saturday morning:

  • Keep to the programme. While you are close you still haven't finished, keep ticking those sessions off right up until Saturday.
     
  • Have an early night next Friday. 
     
  • Devote some time over the next week to sit down and reflect on what you have learnt about yourself over the last 8weeks. While we love that you are going to be running 5k next weekend if you go back to your old habits once it has finished Get up to Five would have been a wasted opportunity. Over the last 8 weeks you have learnt many lessons about how to be successful with exercise and how to include it in your life. By reflecting on these you can take them forward into whatever your next challenge might be. 
     
  • While you have not yet achieved the finish line feeling, start to think about what you want to aim for next. The biggest mistake people make when they achieve a big goal is to not reset a new one quickly after completion. By planting the seed now you will be keeping yourself on track to keep exercise a part of your life for the long term. 
     
  • Share your experience with others. You should be proud of what you have achieved over the last eight weeks. Make sure you share the positive stuff with someone who you feel comfortable with. 

Next weekend you are going to be achieving a massive thing. Allow yourself some time this week to remind yourself of all the progress you have made, you guys really have been awesome.


Every year our raceteam crew head to wanaka for the wanaka half marathon. over 30 of our raceteam'ers stared with get up to five just like you. Here is a video clip we made of the race a couple of years ago showing our  runners having a blast!


  • You are so close team..finish this off strong!

  • We will be taking lots of photos on the run day so bring your smile ;-)  


'When the runs got longer I would give myself time markers to tell myself I was doing well. For example during the 15min sets I would tell myself I was doing well every 5mins.' - Mary
