I've decided to do my first 5k, and it's only a month away. I do go to the gym several times a week, where I do cardio, weights, etc. I also attempt to stay active on the days that I don't go to the gym. Does anyone have any tips or additional training tips to make this as painless as possible?

Nothing new on race day. No new foods, clothes, shoes, water bottles, anything you haven't tried and tested.
Avoid hard runs the week before the race. A good race plan will have a taper in it before the race, and for a 5k, a one week taper is sufficient.
If you can, train on the race course, or on similar terrain. Pore through the website for the race to gather all the info you can.

I've tried couch 2 5k, but it's an eight week program..undecided if I should jump in the middle of that or just continue as I am right now!
I'm not terribly worried about finish time or anything of the sort right now as it's my first..just looking to be as prepared as possible. I think it's definitely going to be a learning experience for me, but I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for your advice ladies!
