So... it is a 10K and I'm going to do this couch to 10K training plan. I have exactly 10 weeks until the run. So here is my plan:
Week 1: Warm up 5m walking, alternate 5m run, 1m walk (x7) then cool down with 5m walking. I'll do this 3 days a week and the other 2 days cross train . I'm using active.com for the training plans and to track my workouts.
On my cross train days I'll do my own 3-2-1 program which includes 4 basic exercises done in succession..
- 15 reps of squats, calf raises, situps then push ups
- 10 reps of squats, calf raises, situps then push ups
- 5 reps of squats, calf raises, situps then push ups
- 1 rep each --just for fun:)
So I'm going to put spin on hold for a while (just until I get this running thing down) and force myself to run.
