Well, I know nobody follows or posts here anymore, but I'm going to use this page for my own good if that's okay. I recently decided to participate in a 4 person relay team to complete a marathon together and have been handed the coveted 5 mile leg. So, my 7 week 10K (6.2 mile) training started today and I have decided to do the 10K training so that come the day of the race I am hopefully overprepared. I plan on keeping up with my schedule right here:
Per the 7 week 10K training plan found on marathonrookie.com, day 1's instructions were to:
Run 25 minutes.
This is how it went:
Street ran for 10 mins. straight: 1-10 minute mark
Brisk walk breather: 10-13:30 min. mark
Ran: 13:30-18:30 min. mark
Brisk walk: 18:30-19:30 min. mark
Ran: 19:30-24:00 min. mark
Walk: 24:00-25:00 min. mark
Upon completion, I walked an additional 13 minutes with a neighbor and Kennady. Within that collective 38 minutes, the Polar watch said I burned 530 calories.
Day 1 is complete!!! Yay for kickin' it off and I feel good about my 20.5 minutes of running!! :)
