15k training has started!!
Last night I ran 3 miles around campus at a moderate pace and felt pretty good. This morning I woke up and ran a tempo run. This would be my first tempo run and I wasn't exactly sure how it was supposed to go. I ran about a mile at a slower pace, then picked it up for 1.4 miles and then cooled down for the last mile.
The training plan explained the tempo run as a 10-15 warm up, then 10-20 minutes gradual increase to the tempo you will run the 15k, and then 5-10 minutes cool down. I feel that my training plan may be a bit packed with workouts but I would rather have it filled like this and be able to take things out than have too many rest days. I was thinking of taking a rest day on Sunday or Monday depending on how this first week goes.
Thanks for all the comments on the training plan, it really means a lot to me and the insight has been very helpful!! I am off now to turn in my track uniform : (
Tomorrow I will be back with Literary Wednesday and also my mom's story! Happy Tuesday!
