Sluggish and Steady(ish). 10K Training and Random Musings

From Couch-to-5K to… a marathon?!

Friday happy! (i am aware it is Monday, but I began this post Friday night and ended up being removed with migraine before i possibly could publish it. Forgive me personally if just what I’ve written here makes no sense… we blame my wonky mind!)

Perhaps it is the current weather switching more spring-like, or possibly it is the simple fact that individuals now understand we are able to run significantly more than 3 kilometers, but in any event Colin and I also are gearing up and excited to start out 10K training. Or, in the event that you glance at the training plan he delivered me personally a couple of days ago (below), we don’t have even to start out… we could just leap straight to Week 4 and gradually increase our mileage, and (whenever we adhere to the master plan) you should be prepared to tackle a 10K by the very first week-end in might:

With a dedication that is little i possibly could be operating my first marathon years before I would personally have ever thought feasible! Amazing what a little inspiration and perseverance can perform, yeah?

It’s good that we’re bouncing in for this 10K training for them: the Old Wethersfield race in August and the Beat the Blerch race in September because I have a few coming up this summer and I wouldn’t mind feeling prepared. (Colin has also enrolled in one out of June that i would do since well.) simply considering operating longer distances and having the ability to run in events other than 5Ks is getting me super moved.
