I love that dedication, Pat! I'm not a big fan of treadmills. I try to be very careful when I use them. (normally when I travel on road trips & at hotels) I don't keep my cadence too high. There's something about that steady pace that bothers me when I do an hour on them. Slow & steady is my goal. That said, if my weather was dominated by snow & ice, I'd be working it on the treadmill.

I see nothing wrong with repeating the week outside. You can tell the difference in pace for sure. As I stated in the past, races are tests of your training! Your confidence is stronger when you know you've taken care of business. Pat, you will own your 5K! Inspiring!

Thanks for responding to our posts and to supporting us, Monty!

I don't have my 5K until May 10, so I'm a little ahead of the game in terms of timing. But I've been doing my training on a treadmill until now... and maybe still this week. We've had lots of ice and snow on our road until yesterday, so the treadmill has been the safer choice. I was thinking that I might do Week 4 twice - once this week indoors and once next week outdoors - though the interactive tracker on SP doesn't really allow a variation like that. I'll just have to know myself (and track it as regular fitness minutes instead)....

I know we're checking in under the topic of "2013 Week 3" and this week will be "2013 Week 4." Even if it's 2014, I'm glad you know where to find us to give us encouraging words!!

Thanks again! emoticon

Pat, the cross training will build strength, and energy in your run. I've gone without, and have felt the results. Know that when you do it, you are becoming a running machine AND will run safely!

Anne, I'm posting this link. I don't take it as gospel but it is a good run form checkup! Remember that we all run differently to a degree. It's why I say, find your run!

Hi all -
Forgot to check in this week on this thread, but I did all three days of running training for Week 3. I haven't been as good about my cross-training days, though, and hope to remedy that next week...

Happy running everyone!

My name is Pat and I live in Wisconsin...

week 3 day 1 done to plan (40 mins was 2.5 miles) then walked 10mins to get me home. I would love to be able to run my circuit in 40mins eventually. I think it would be just 3.5 miles

Week 3 complete! I tried to run more knowing that next weeks plan calls for no walking! That scares me greatly! Not sure why but my mind is playing lots of games about it!

After today's 40, I pushed on for another 40 walking mostly but running when the right song was playing!

Thanks for this thread. It helps!

Every run won't be the same. I believe we can only make it easier by what we eat, how we train, and our pacing. I would also change the route to make it more enjoyable and not monotonous. The key here is that you DID push through! Outstanding! Stay strong.

Patty, Do you have a foam roller? Those are wonderful for post-run muscles. I use "The Stick" (you can find them at run expos, running stores & sports stores) whenever I feel my muscles getting tight or on the verge of cramping. A great tool!

thanks guys for the help.
I think I Charlie horsed the right calf during my run/walk routine and needing to make it back home favored it by overstressing the left knee. It was easier to jog than to walk made my best time ever.
Today the swelling in the left knee is way down and I purchased a knee brace for stability.
The right calf is still recovering and I have hung way low since Thursday.
I do have a retail job and stand most of the day I hope the knee brace will help this scenario.

Again I appreciate the input.

NOW, work on RICE! RICE is a mnemonic for a treatment method for soft tissue injuries which is an acronym for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
You can learn more about it here.

You embrace recovery and you will be back training in a reasonable time. All the best.

I would take it easy Patty. Not sure about the pain. I would guess it may be from your running form. What did you do afterwards? If you don't have one, you should get a roller to help with your leg problems.

So I did my 10k.
My left knee is swollen and my right back shin area is very painful??
I stretched before I went out for my routine.

The good news is that I finished week 3.
It hurt less to jog than to walk so I jogged almost all of my route. emoticon

Monty,
Thank you for the link and for the explanation.
Wow!! if you are doing that you are really my hero.

My brother in law Dave Norman submitted to the "kona inspired 2014".
I don't think he won but he motivated my husband and myself to get off the couch and to get moving. My husband has bad legs caused from a spinal tumor so he rows while I am out there with my attempt to run.

We figure it will be our leg for Dave when he goes to Kona for his triathlon.
So tonight is my 10K I will check in later.
Thank you again for the help.

G'Morning, Patty!

A triathlon has 3 legs, (or stages) swimming, cycling, and running. All are timed, including "transitions" between the individual swim, cycle, and run components (T1 & T2).

Here are several variations of 10K training plans that can be chosen from, depending on preference. You might want to search the web for others to compare.

www.runnersworld.com/10k-training-plans

If you are comfortable with your plan and you're doing a weekly 10K, you're ready. I would remember to embrace recovery days, insure strength training in the process, and fuel clean (for energy). I would also take it easy the week leading up to the 10K.

Train well and you run well!

Monty what is a tri leg?

I have a pedometer but I don't know how to set it up.
I use an activelink chip with Weight Watchers that device is a real motivator for me.

Tomorrow is my weekly 10 K. I do 4.43 miles daily but step it up one day a week to a 10K to get ready for my 10K on September 7th. Do you think that is often enough?

Glad you are sticking with me for right now I really appreciate it.

I have to focus on my posture, my gait, and my time strategy. It's so much easier having a basic timer that can alert you when it's time to change intervals. I'm actually looking for a bike/run quick mount kit as I want to use my Garmin Forerunner 305 (older model but I love it!) during those two Tri legs.

Okay today is day one week three.
I can jog a little longer towards the end of my 4.3 mile routine.
I don't have a timer so I count my steps instead.
I count to 300 then stop running count to 100 then start again.
Is this a good estimate?

I am on week 3. I am a little sore but feeling good. I trying to find the time to run that isn't to hot. The temperature here is in the 100's. The morning isn't good for me and the evening I have to wait until about 8:00pm before it get cool enough to run. That ok I just run in the orchard around here.

Going into this week has felt good. Not too hard to add the extra interval, and I am no longer spending the 4 minutes wondering WHEN my timer will whistle for the 1 minute rest! In fact, for the first half I almost feel like I could already skip the breaks, but I'm still taking them because when I hit the second half I start to feel it. Seems like it will be hard to go from this to running the whole 35 minutes, but I feel I can do it, especially if I take it slowly. Definitely loving the running. What a great stress reliever!

I did end up taking a week "off" sort of . I kept running/walking to maintain some semblance of fitness, but at greatly reduced mileage. About a mile of running, half a mile of walking. I took 2 days off all together. I will repeat week 3 before I move to week 4. I just took my last antibiotic pill today and I had a reasonable night's sleep last night so hopefully it will be much better!

I know you've been doing a lot of running, Shiraz! (I actually visited a town in Iran by the same name over 40 years ago!) I also know you & DH are sick. Embrace that recovery time so you can bounce back stronger than ever. AND, I found EmergenC to be a great supplement for faster recovery, that and a good bowl of chicken soup!

I know I just ran yesterday, but I ran again today. I decided to repeat this week. Today was hot but it went fine. I just drank a heck of a lot of water. Not sore, not out of breath. A good run!

Rough start again today. I am going to have to repeat this week - or just plan on a really long warm up. It seems to take my head a long time to clear. Once I get going, though, I am fine.
I ended up "running" for almost 50 minutes total - but since I wasn't sure I was going to track it as a run, I put the incline up on my treadmill after ten minutes of nearly all walking. I was on incline 5 and felt like running so I did. Although at that incline, slogging through slush probably better describes my speed... but hey, I was running of a sort. 8 laps on AT LEAST incline 4, mostly "running" (slogging". 3.1 miles total. So I'm logging it! And I am proud of myself!

I seem to have been posting in the wrong week all last week. Oops.
Week 3 Day 1. 3.1 miles, beginning was rough but managed to jog a little more than 3 laps straight towards the end. Finished in 42.57 minutes. I may repeat this week because so far I am inconsistent with how long I need to walk - I usually need a 3-4 minute walk break in the middle somewhere to cool down, even though I'm not running very fast. If I can make it past that during this week, I'll move on to week 4. If not, I'll repeat week 3.
I feel good mentally, though. I know I'll run and I know I will finish.

I had a great W3D1. I was feeling really good and had just had 2 rest days, so I decided to test myself. I ran for 20 minutes straight and only walked 3/40 minutes! Ended up running 3.55 miles. Bit sore today and tomorrow will definitely have to be an easier day, but it made me feel really good about myself to be able to do that, and much more confident about the prospect of running for 35 minutes straight next week.

Well, tonight I am SO excited. Don't fall off your chairs, I did 35 minutes non-stop jogging!!!!!

As I was pounding along, I thought: "If other Sparkies have managed it so can I!"

Nearly had a chocolate Easter egg to celebrate, but restrained myself LOL

editing this now: sorry this was for week 4

Well, I managed to finish week 3 OK, bit tired, like Rawcookie, Hulahoop girl!, I may not manage the full 35 minutes without a walking break, but I'll do my best.

Good progress everyone

I'm no expert, but I'd say repeat Week 3 and see how you get on - unrealistic to get up and run 35 mins atfer not doing anything for 2 weeks. There is no shame in going back to Week 2 even - it's training, all good :D

Na, didn't get my run done - so I've just re-set my progress to stay on Week 3 for another week. I'm not confident about shifting from Walk 1min, Jog 4 mins to running 35 mins! I might try doing that a bit more gradually.

It is a beautiful day here today - but not a run day! I might not get my 3rd run done tomorrow because our clocks go forward and I've got to go to work 11am-11am (24 hrs) - so I'm setting my sights on Monday for a run. Life gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it!

I've just done my first run of Week 3 ( I think my weeks are going a bit crazy - but who cares?!) basically jog 4 mins with 1 min rests. I am noticing a great improvement in my stamina - I can now jog up steep hills (might need a tad more walk to recover, but not much) and am doing some running on sand - which is harder. Getting the hand of modifying my pace according to the terrain and how I'm feeling. I'm loving it! Running the whole 5k still feels like a long way off - but I'm trusting the process.

PS - I like the idea of taking a 4-mile meditation walk - thanks for that NIKKI

I did the same thing when I went through the program. I wanted to be safe and confident so I repeated a week or two! At the same time, your skeletal frame will become more acclimated to your run. Just focus on how great it will feel to run with the wind. Be sfae stay focused, and you will be fine!

I'm repeating week 3 as l really struggled last week. Last night I did 5K in 40 mins and felt pretty good! I really want to run outside but it's supposed to snow for the next two days so I'll stick to the treadmill. Hopefully this weekend.

Look on e-bay for an older version. I had a Marathoner recommend the Forerunner 305 and I've loved it through too many races.It can be had for a very decent price.

Q, I think you will find those intervals to be very interesting. I'll be interested to hear about it.

I found that in training, the goal is to increase endurance as well as confidence.Also, when you get off the treadmill, you will find your race pace naturally. Stay strong!

I started Week 3 last night and had a rough time. I felt really tired and a little wheezy so walked more than usual. I did 5K in 41 mins.

I feel great today and am going to do intervals tonight and have a rest day tomorrow.

I'd just follow the plan for now then when you complete the plan, you can add that extra day for training. I did it for about 7 months while I did 5Ks. Then I started training for my first Half. If I had it to do over, i would have trained for a 10K first THEN train for a half. Training well is essential in keeping injury free. All the best and stay focused.

Remember to embrace recovery days, Nikkii. Too much too soon can lead to injury! Great to hear you're building up your endurance!

When you do your training for week 3, come by this thread and tell us about your accomplishments for the day.
(Example)
How far did you walk?
How did you feel on the day you did it?
Or anything else you want to talk about for your 5k training for week 3
