>The beginning …
>So …. tonight we discussed the program. They want us to run 4 days a week. I’ll do it, but that’s a lot!!
We had a baseline workout…. We ran half a mile to warm up, and then they timed us for a mile. I ran almost the entire mile and a half. I stopped to walk a few times, but ran most of the time! But …. my mile time was 14 minutes and 23 seconds. That’s really slow!!
I asked the coordinator where he’d put a runner who runs as fast as the walkers. (Ya know, the walkers at the back of the pack ….) He thought I may run too slow for the program. He suggested I go back to the advanced 5k training. Uh hello? I’m training for a 10k. I’ve set my mind to train for a 10k! I WILL COMPLETE THE 10K! He said to give it a shot, and if I need to go back to the No Boundaries (5k) class, I can do that when they start in February. I won’t be doing that.
So, the challenge is to run ….. and to push myself to run faster than I normally do!!
I am looking forward to this challenge!!! It’ll make completing the 10k so much more rewarding!
