A PRELIMINARY TRAINING PLAN FOR RUNNING A 10K NEAR ST. PATRICK'S DAY that incorporates a 5K run the weekend of ST. VALENTINES DAY can be accessed by clicking here. Week1 begins January 17, giving you plenty of time to celebrate and recover from the start of 2016, is shown above. This plan, as the previous "Turkey Trot" for everyone and "On To The New Year 5k", is based on one published by RunningTrainingPlan.com. The EarnedRuns version adds routines that help runners prepare to run increasing distances and prevent injuries that would sideline them (MYRTL's, dynamic pre-run and static post-run stretching, foam rolling, and strength exercises). The FINAL Plan won't be much different in terms of scheduling; a few "safety" calculations must be double-checked. The NEW ELEMENT in this plan is a HILL REPEAT session that starts in WEEK 5; also the number of weekly runs is increased from 3 days to 4 days. This is one way to get started on a more active 2016!
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.
