WooHoo - Went for a run today

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Beautiful day in Omaha. So much so that I went for a run. I'm running a 10k in 2 weeks (Ugh!) and haven't done much running at all this winter. I got out a few times and did a bit of running in the midst of some walking but today was the first day that I set out to specifically run.

I've decided to start a training program for a half marathon so I will start that next week. At the end of the first week I'm supposed to run 3 miles so I decided it would be a good start to go with 2 miles today. I did 1 min walk: 4 min run intervals and did 2 miles in 23:32. I doubt that I can keep the same pace running my 10k but I'm going to try to make it an 11-12 min per mile pace. All I can do is try for right now, right?!

Off to my sisters' tomorrow for the Composition cramming session. I thought it had to be about 18 pages but one of my son's friends told him that it's 5-6 pages (or more). Much more do-able.

    I love Athleta's free training guide for 5K, 10K, half-marathon, and half-triathlons:

You may still be able to get a hard copy at one of their stores. Also, I didn't stretch properly and became injured so I recommend that as well as the 10:1 running ratio when doing the half-marathon (run for 10 minutes, walk for 1 minute, run for 10, walk for 1, etc.). Your speed is likely to improve and there's less likelihood of injury. I wish you the best!
