C210K W10D3

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

Today was one of those “bad” days running. There is never really a bad day running but there are tougher days. This was one. I’m starting to recognize what conditions really affect me during a run and the Texas heat and humidity are absolutely a factor. It was only around 80 today but it really […]

C210K W10D2

Another good day. Weather was nice and the run went well. I’ve started having a few pains in my shoulders, most likely from clenching my hands (common running issue) but other than that, nothing to report.

C210K W10D1

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

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 […]

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

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 […]
