Training for a 10K

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I've decided to increase my mileage weekly to train for a emoticon as running is such Fun! Running is the choice of cardio I find myself turning to more & more.
I do want to avoid injury and burn out, yet still enjoy running on a regular basis. So, I've made a plan for myself. I LOVE that energy boost I get during my run and afterwards!

My future training for a emoticon will look like this:

emoticonSunday: 60 MIN Circuit Training & stretching

emoticonMonday: 60 MIN run/walk Jeff Galloway style

emoticonTuesday: 30-45 MIN aerobics/dance/calisthenics

emoticonWednesday: 60 MIN Circuit Training & stretching

emoticonThursday: 60 MIN run/walk Jeff Galloway style

emoticon Friday: my 'rest day'...::usually the busiest for my family, but not for "fitness". REST is a versatile word. Lol! emoticon

emoticon Saturday: 30-45 MIN aerobics/dance/calisthenics

We shall see how many miles I can cover. emoticon emoticon
My fuse is lit, and I look forward to making PROGRESS! emoticon

The PLAN is to take my usual 3 miles, and increase my mileage by a mile each week. The Jeff Galloway way of running suits me, keeps me from overdoing it, and allows me room to grow. This week, I will work towards 4 miles on Monday & Thursday. I have a whole hour to do it....:::I plan to take it SLOW. But who knows where the road may lead me? It's all wide open::... emoticon emoticon

My present 3 miles: (My run pace starts at a 12 min/mile and ends at a 9 min/mile pace. The walking pace is 16-17 min/mile for about 15-20 seconds.)

During this time of training, if I begin to talk to myself, I'll simply head to SP and reach out to YOU! ...:::lol.
This vid is another tool I will use....:::LOL! You've gotta see it!
