There is a lot to be said for signing up for a race when you can barely run a mile. That’s exactly what I did this winter. I realized, I need the extra push of a deadline. On December 16th I signed up for a Half Marathon in April. I couldn’t run one mile!
Today, with a 5k training plan I am running 3 miles easy, with another training plan in place to finish 13.1 miles in, hopefully, a faster time than I did six years ago when I was regularly fit. As much as I want to go further, faster, already… I am reminding myself that this time period is for building base mileage only.
Where do I track my training?
I first use Your Training Calendar to import Hal’s plans into my Google Calendar.
And, that’s how I do it… Don’t forget, yesterday, I told you how you can run races for free!
