C210K W10D1

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

Ah much better. W10D1 is three fifteen minute runs with a minute of walking in between. Great run. Had some hip soreness but it subsided. My calves were pissy for the first mile but also warmed up and things went fine. The weather cooled again so that was nice. Not sure what I’m going to […]

C210K W9D3

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

Felt icky today. Just one of those bad run days and today was the bombing at the Boston Marathon. 🙁  The weather was pretty warm as well. I’ve found that I tend to be a lot more comfortable in 50-60 degrees rather than 80-90. Finished with less mileage for the time which means my ace […]

C210K W9D2

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

Day two of week 9 was about the same as the first, pretty simple. No pain, easy pace. Nothing out of the ordinary as expected. Really glad I trained on 5K’s for awhile before beginning 10K training.

C210K W9D1

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

First day of 10K Trainer went easily enough. I waited about a month between completing C25K and starting 10K training so I think that helped. I was up to 40-50 mins straight running during this time which I’m sure helped considerably. The first week is four 10 min runs with a minute of walking in […]

Time to begin C210K!

Posted by & filed under 10K Check-In, 10K Trainer.

I’ll begin running the C210K or “10K Trainer” Regimen this week. I’ve been running 3.1 – 4 miles consistently since I completed C25K so it’s on to the next step toward my half marathon goal. The application I am using is Zen’s C210k trainer which includes the 5K trainer so I’ll skip ahead to “Week […]

C25K Completion!

Posted by & filed under Check-In.

I finished the C25K Regimen today and went out with a bang. I had not been hitting my mile times so today I decided I’d run the full 3 miles no matter how long it took. I slowed my pace and got comfortable and got there. It is hard for me to believe that eight […]

C25K W8D3

Posted by & filed under C25K.

Final Day of C25K and probably my best run yet comfort wise. This was one of those “I don’t feel like running days” but I guess I did. I added .75 miles to my average of the last three runs and I hit the 5K mark. I didn’t even realize it was the last C25K […]

C25K W8D2

Posted by & filed under C25K.

W8D2 went pretty well. A little fatigued at the end for some reason but not bad. I told myself I’d push myself past my 2.5 mark where I seem stuck but by the end I didn’t have it in me.. Maybe next time! Keeping a good pace any only off the distance requirement by about […]

C25K W8D1

Posted by & filed under C25K.

Good run today! When the app spouted off about being “halfway” I literally said “Really? No joke?” I let time get away from me which means I was able to get into a comfortable pace. I also chewed gum while I ran which helped with the throat dryness. The weather was pretty cool and wet […]

Week 7 Check-In

Posted by & filed under Check-In.

Overall I think week 7 went pretty well. I did not hit the 2.5 mile distance requirement but I met every time requirement which I feel is more important. You can also see my time diminished over the week which means I got a little faster by end week. I changed up the trails I […]
