Training Day 1

Monday, April 29, 2013

So I originally had decided that I wasn't going to follow a training program. I looked at so many programs and haven't liked any of them. So many focused on speed and endurance and while I want to finish as quickly as my body can handle, I don't want to focus of speed. I want to focus on endurance. I want to work as hard as possible to get to the finish line of every race I run and I can only do that if I focus on my endurance and my overall health.

Today I was reading some advice from one of my sparkteams and it kept coming up to check out Hal Higdons running programs. So of course I decided to check it out. I am so glad I did! I originally found the half marathon program and wanted to jump right in. However it is a 12 week program and my half isn't until November so I kept looking at the programs and ran across one for a 10k. Since I am running a 10k in July I thought it would be best to train for that now and the half after I run the 10k.

I am really excited to see how my training goes and how well I do when the 10k rolls around. In fact I am more excited for my first 10k than I was my first 5k and more excited than I am for my first half. Though I think it will all change as time goes on.

Also on a somewhat unrealted topic. I wonder if I am the only one who can't decide on a race schedule. I plan for this race and that race and then I change my mind. I say no races until my 10k and then I find a 5k I really want to do. I find more and more races all the time and can't decide for sure what I want to do.

    One thing to remember is that running in the heat of July is very different from running on a beautiful April morning.
