That crazy awesome day led to this.
That would be the registration confirmation for my first 10K on May 14.
I decided that since I did a split 10K (minus a few tenths), I could do it all in one shot! I pushed my limits in just about every other way, so time to take the racing to another level!
Training for this race will be a little different than a 5K. After looking at several training plans, I decided on Hal Higdon's 10K Novice plan. I'm not a new runner by any means, but I am new to the distance. In fact, I have not completed more than three and a half miles EVER. Still, the plan gives me enough time to build up my distance, and still works a good amount of cross training in.
The plan in a nutshell:
- Three days of running
- Two days of cross training
- Two days of strength training
- One active rest day (I will be using this day to take Barre class at my gym)
- One complete rest day
I am also slated to run the New Jersey Marathon 5K on April 29. I was originally going to race that one, but with this 10K two weeks after that, I will run two miles before that, and use that race as a training run (with a souvenir T-shirt...lol).
This is by far the craziest thing I have ever done, but I am up for the challenge! Follow my training on the socials (@Tradledee85 on Twitter and Instagram)! Here's to an awesome cycle and race day!
