A while since I last updated! After coming off the C25K plan and just running as I pleased three times a week I have now started a proper training plan for my 10K race at the end of May, based on one from the Asics website. The plan steps up my runs to four a week, with a mix of two harder runs (either fast, or interval) and two slower runs.
I’m actually quite enjoying being back on a more structured routine, and I’ve not found the step up in training to be too much extra work. Indeed this week I increased the runs to four miles from the originally prescribed three, in order to make it a bit more challenging and also build up my weekly milage in a more gradual fashion.
I’m aiming to finish my first 10K in 50 minutes, a fairly ambitious target but one I hope I can manage as long as I put in the training. Given how far I’ve come since starting running at the start of the year, I felt it important to keep on pushing myself. Roll on May!
