10K Training

I mentioned here once before, that I am training (along with my friend Lisa) to run a 10K at the end of May. While I have done this once before, I was not prepared properly last time, and am determined to do it properly this time. So, I put together a running plan. It started January 25th, and includes 3 runs per week (Okay, they are actually jogs in my case...)

Problem is, I keep missing my runs. Out of the 13 I have scheduled, (including todays, which I DID do), I have actually only ran 7. SEVEN! That is barely over half! Of course, I have 'reasons' for missing all of them. I missed three because I was sick, one because there was company over for the evening, one because I was too tired, and one because the gym was closed. So of all of these times I missed, really only being sick was a legitimate excuse. (I knew ahead of time that the company was coming over, so I should have done it on the day before instead, I wasn't really that tired, and technically, I could have gone to the gym first (while it was still open) and got groceries after). So... looking at this from a mileage perspective, I have completed 16 miles, and am owing 15. Yikes.

So, here's where you come in. I have decided to use my place to 'report in' so to speak - to keep me accountable. If you don't want to read these posts, please just ignore them. But for those of you who are interested, you can expect posts on the days (or the day after, depending) indicated on the schedule below!

Here is what my schedule looks like right now:
