I can’t believe I’m saying this.
I’m going to run a 10K. I don’t know when. But I will.
And training starts today.
I really liked the simple layout and think it leaves a lot of room for customization. It also only has me running three times a week, which, considering the condition of my knees and shins, is probably a good thing. I also like that it incorporates two days of strength. That’s currently my weakest (is there a pun here?) area and the one I want to most improve.
I felt so good on my 4-miler Saturday that I’m confident I can push myself even further. Believing you can do it is 75 percent of the battle and I’m pretty sure the other 25 percent is compression sleeves haha.
I’m going to continue with intervals of 10 min. running/1 min. walking because it’s working really well for me right now, and Higdon’s plan encourages walk breaks.
I also already have two more 5K races planned for April 28 and May 6, but I think the schedule will work nicely with them.
I wholeheartedly believe that putting your goals out there is the first step to achieving them. So here it is. I’ll also leave you with this picture of delicious trail mix from Whole Foods that I devoured after Saturday’s run.
How’s that for a Monday? 🙂
