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!
