Time for a 10k Plan

It’s spring. Well, it’s officially spring anyway. The view out my window says something entirely different. It says BLIZZARD in full effect! But still, it’s going to be spring weather one of these days and late spring/early summer is the time to get racing, right?! So it’s time to pull out my running shoes and get moving on a training plan. Maybe a training plan will actually get me running with some kind of regularity.

I have a friend who wants to run a 10k together in June (we haven’t picked a race yet, but I can estimate dates for now). I’m not going to be pushing for a PR or anything this time. Maybe in the fall, so I’m choosing to adapt the Finish It Plan from my Train Like a Mother book (going to run 4x per week only) to prep for the race.

March is almost over so I’m sharing my April schedule (using the gorgeous Run Pretty Far calendar download as template for extra motivation!)  It’s a pretty easy plan actually, if I just actually get running already. Maybe I can make a “deal” with myself that I can buy something new from RPF if I finish all my training runs in April. If it warms up enough I’ll be trying to do speed workouts at the track, but probably will be on my treadmill til May. All local outdoor tracks are pretty buried under snow at the moment! Have I mentioned I can’t wait to get outside and run? I know, lots of people go out in this weather, but I’m not a fan of it.
