Going to run a 10k!!
I'm super excited about it, my step-mom will be running with me, which is way cool, she just completed a Sprint Tri 2 weeks ago and this will be her first 10k.
I was initially going to run the 5k but then I decided the 10k would be possible after pushing the Lil Bean in the BOB for 3 1/4 mile. The 10k is on Sept 18th so I have 3 weeks to prepare and will be able to safely build my mileage before the race.
Here is my plan:
Sept 1st: 2 miles Easy w/Stroller at 12/mile pace
Sept 2nd: Jillian's 30 day Shred workout
Sept 3rd: 2 miles with 2x400 repeats at 8:30/mile pace
Sept 4th: Rest, Walk
Sept 5th: Xtrain
Sept 6th: 4 miles Easy with Stroller at 12/mile pace
Sept 7th: Xtrain
Sept 8th: Jillian's 30 day Shred
Sept 9th: 2 miles with 2x800 repeats at 9/mile pace
Sept 10th: Xtrain
Sept 11th: Rest, Walk
Sept 12th: Xtrain
Sept 13th: 5 miles Easy with Stroller at 12/mile pace
Sept 15th: Jillian's 30 day Shred
Sept 16th: 2 miles easy
Sept 17th: Rest
Sept 18th: 10k Race and shooting for a 10:30/mile pace
I believe I should be able to obtain this pace but running with my step-mom may make it slower or faster.
