A Head Start

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I've been thinking about my goals for 2013 for a while now, and wanted to share my new training plan with you for my 10K.

I did some research to look for free 10K training programs online. When I found one I liked, I altered it to fit my current mileage and outings.

Week Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
1 3 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross training 4 mile run
2 3 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross training 4 mile run
3 3 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross Training 4.5 mile run
4 3 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross training 5 mile run
5 4 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross training 5 mile run
6 4 mile run Rest 3 mile run Cross Training 5.5 mile run
7 4 mile run Rest 5 mile run Cross training 6 mile run
8 4 mile run Rest 5 mile run Cross training 6 mile run

If I start this plan this week, I'll have more than enough time to train for the 10K in May--and even get a head start on a half marathon plan!

For "cross training," I don't really know what I'll be doing. Probably just going for long walks, since I don't exactly relish the thought of taking my bike out into the foot of snow we just got.

2012 has been really good to me. I lost 30 pounds and people are noticing, and I got a new job that is hopefully going to turn into an awesome career! I'm really looking forward to see what 2013 has in store for me!

    Congrats on losing 30 lbs. Your plan sounds great! Your running plan sounds good. I've had trouble figuring out what to do for cross training in the past too. You'll do strength training, too, right? That is good cross training. Spark people has good strength training for runners. Also, do a lot of stretching. That helps your running as well.

Congrats on the new job, too! That's great news! emoticon emoticon
