10k Training.

Happy Hump Day! 

Monday I realized I only have about 8 weeks til my first 10k of the year. 
I ran my first 10k back in 2012 and haven't done one since. I had big plans to ran the Plaza 10k last year after having Olivia but I didn't want to come in last so I skipped it. 
This year I have about 5 10ks I'm completing before the end of the year. 

I'm pretty excited about them. I'm still trying to decide if I want to do a half marathon in October or not.
I feel like I could but then again I feel like I haven't been running that long to try and run one. Who knows. I know I need to make my mind up soon though. 

Anyways, I knew I needed to find a good training plan that would work for me.
Here's what I found. 
It's Jeff Galloway's 10k Plan for Beginners.

Yesterday I did 35 min run. I'm still a super slow runner. But I'm ok with that.

Also, I'm switching my Friday and Saturday training. Since I run a lot of Saturday's anyways I thought I would just switch those days around. 

My first 10k is June 7th. 
I'm not going for a certain time or anything. I just want to finish those 6.2 miles and not come in dead last. 
I'm doing the Hospital Hill 10k
I can't wait for it. It will be my first one post baby. 

Conversation time: 
Have you ever done a 10k race?
What's your favorite race length?
Should I go for the half in October?

  1. You def need to do the half! It's not about how long you've been running, it's about the training. Go for it! What an accomplishment that will be!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

    I'm excited to read all about your 10k's this year!
