I have signed up for 2 upcoming 10K's.... one is in Grand Rapids with a bunch of my girlfriends in mid May and the second is only a few weeks after in early June. Even though I have been keeping up with my running I have decided that my goal for spring/summer is to increase my speed. I have to admit it was really cool to be able to google "intermediate" training plans rather than beginner this time since I knew I could comfortably run a good 3-5 miles. I am now 7 weeks out from the first of the races and this training plan fits perfectly.
This is the first time I will be working on speed-work is is actually kind of cool... anything to break up the constant running is welcome in my book. Sadly this week I am still fighting off the last bits of the flu so I haven't been able to get in the training but I am not too concerned that I will be able to pick it up on the LR this weekend.
Happy training to anyone else working towards something!
