First of the Month

keep-calm-and-get-faster-quote-cdToday is that start of a whole new month and I’m feeling pretty good about this running lark. OK, so I didn’t manage to run as much as I’d planned in September, but I did managed at least one run a week, so that’s something of a routine, right?

And I even managed to achieve September’s goal of running 5K in under 35 minutes, with a nice 34:01 on the treadmill last weekend.

So, this month I need to up my game a little bit more. Knowing how hard I’m finding it to get back into a routine, I’ve decided to just add one more run per week. I’m already running every weekend, so I reckon it wouldn’t be too hard to make sure I run on Wednesdays too.

I’m still aiming for my sub-30 5K, but as I’ve not managed to run as much as I would have liked, I’m going to start upping the distance on the weekend run by half a mile each time to try to build up my stamina. Also, it will help to push myself a bit harder as running on the treadmill is a lot easier than running outside.

I started off this morning as planned, with a 3.5 mile run using a 7:1 run/walk ratio, resulting in a time of 36:14. I also noted that my time at 5K was around 32:23, so it was good to see a big improvement there too.

How’s your training going? What are your running/training plans for October? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
