November 1st I am signing up to run my first 10K. If' I'm up roaming the house at 12:01am I might log on and do it then.
A 10K is also called a Quarter Marathon- I like the sound of that. I'm running a Quarter Marathon sounds way more awsome than saying I'm running a stinking 10K.
Hippie Chick is the race and it's in Hillsboro so the route is flat and scenic. My sister n law has run the Portland Marathon twice and she is thinking of doing the half. I wish we could run together as it's an all lady run. Sisters, Mothers and friends get together for a good cause. I am not at her level and she probably could walk faster than I will be running.
I printed the training schdule for running a 10K. I modified the week days to match my gym days and rest days. I have 6 months to train- so I can stretch out the 8 week plan and hopefully the 8th week before the run i will be up to spead and can kick it out.
At the gym I run about a 13-15 minute mile. I would love to run a 10 minute mile. The last run I did was the Shamrock run about 10 years ago. I wanted to finish with out walking which I did and I think I was running a 10 minute mile back then.
This is going to be a big challenge. I would like to loose some way on the journey. If I don't I will know I'm healthy and fit.
