After running 2 halfs in 2 months, I've decided to pull back and run the Calgary Jugo Juice 10K on May 26th. I'm still part of a half marathon clinic but I think I need to focus more on speed rather than distance right now.
I also need to take care of this IT band and calf issue that has been bothering me for the last two months. The last thing I want is to be sidelined with injury so I think sticking to shorter runs is a good idea.
I found a 10K training plan from Runner's World and one of Hal Hidgon's that I have adapted (like switched it into kilometers!) to suit my schedule and goals.
Now if I could just figure out how to post my training plan into Blogger that would be great!
It's on a spreadsheet in google docs- any tips on how I can insert it? Copy and pasting isn't working properly. I suck at technology! ;P
Ideally, I would LOVE to run a sub 60 minute 10K. Based on the McMillian Running calculator, with my recent half marathon PR of 2:15 I could achieve this. It's going to require a lot of hard work (aka speed work) and pushing myself beyond my comfort zone but I think I can do it.
I did this race 2 years ago just before I found out I was pregnant and I got my 10K PR. The course has since changed but it is still fairly fast and flat. Hubby is doing the half marathon distance, Leigh is doing the marathon and it is the goal race for the half marathon clinic I am part of so I know lots of people who will be racing that day.
Bring on the 10K!!
