Winter 10k Training Plan

9 Jan

The St. Patrick’s day 10k is in exactly 10 weeks! I am determined to finish in 1 hour or less this year :) So I created the following plan:

My first week isn’t going that well, I’ve had a migraine for the past few days that just won’t leave so I wasn’t able to run 3k  :( but I did manage to walk 3k!

Question: What training programs are you following?

    3km walk is better than nothing at all :) Even better considering you had a migraine…

    Couch to 5K! Just did the first night last night…hoping/praying it gets easier! Good luck!

      It will get easier…just persevere, and do enough stretching! I noticed a huge difference putting some music on my phone to run with, helps keep your mind focused.

    Hope you are better soon. Good job getting out there, migraine and all.

    Oh yeah, training program. So far (for 5k and 10k) I just did the fly by the soles of my shoes training plan. I am so not good with a structured plan. I just went by how I felt each day.

    Same goes for my half marathon training. My only real rule in training is that I have to know I can go the distance, so I make sure I can run one mile longer than the race. Has worked so far. I suppose I will have to follow an actual plan if/when I sign up for a
    marathon. Depends on how the 1/2 goes.

    Have fun training!

    Couch to 5K, on Week 2! Running my first 5K on March 9, right on schedule, then moving into training for 10K.

    Sorry you have a migraine! :( Looks like a solid training plan, though. I’m following one of Jenny Hadfield’s half-marathon plans from her website. So far so good.

    Hang in there! You are doing great, and walking is better than doing nothing. Hope it passes soon…

    I try to follow Hal higdon’s marathon training plan. However – I am training for my 4th marathon (19 days away) and I have learned that the best program is listening to your body. My best races have happened after running based on how I felt. Good luck

    Hal Higdon is great! I used his training plans for my first 10k and Half Marathon. Wow! 4th marathon! You rock! I’m a firm believer in listening to your body and giving it what it wants :) It does know
