THE 2018 HALF MARATHON with SAINTS DAYS 5k and 10K Training Plan
(FINAL DRAFT) is now available on the RESOURCES page. There will be one more check before the first day of training Sunday January14. There aren’t likely to further edits; it’s just a precaution to find mistakes It’s a good idea to look it over. Remember with any plan there is some wiggle room to make changes.
The long run day in this plan is on Saturdays. Some might find it more convenient to shift the schedule forward or backward such that this run falls on Fridays or Sundays. Initially the runs are shorter in distance, but as the plan progresses will require a considerable time commitment. Check your school, social, and work calendars to determine if alterations now will help you persevere in the later months of the plan.
Note that dates of the 5K St. Valentine’s Day and 10K St Patrick’s Day races in the plan fall on weekends before and after the actual holiday. Search online for organized events as soon as possible so that you can write the specific date on your calendar. Because these themed races might be held on any weekend day near the saint’s feast day (February 14 and March 17) you’ll need to personalize the plan once you register for these races.
Remember, a custom race can be arranged if you use Earned Runs bibs for these events!
Walkers can follow the same plan to participate in a 5K and possibly a 10K.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
