So after reading Murakami's book, What I Talk about When I Talk About Running, I started thinking about running another race. I'm looking at doing a Half in the fall, maybe Nashville, but I haven't decided. But I want to run it faster. One way to get faster is to focus on a shorter race. I thought I would focus on a 10k. I've never done one, and it seems like a good distance to work on leading up to a Half. The only problem, is that I was unable to find a 10k that I could attend that worked with the dates I wanted. So my plan? My own, private 10k. Next week I'll start training for the 10k using the Train Like a Mother Own it plan. My goal? To see if I can keep up with my kettlebell training and push hard with my running. If it works out, then I will sign up for a Half in the fall.
I'm excited to start training. I need some focus and a reason to push myself. I'm hoping this will do it.
