And the training begins...

I know following a training plan for a 10K may seem a little silly, but I think I need to do it in order to get myself back to where I want to be.

My 10K is coming up at the end of April (Mercedes-Benz 10K), but I really want to PR at this race. Right now, my 10K personal best is 1:08 but I find that once I hit that 6K mark, I run out of steam. I'm hoping that following a training plan will help me get to a more consistent 10K pace.

I'm going to stick with my go-to Hal Higdon training plan, except this time I'm going to go with the intermediate plan. I want to add in some actual work as opposed to just running a certain distance each time.

Here's the plan for the next 8 weeks.

Hal Higdon's intermediate 10k program

Most of this will be done in the gym on the treadmill until temperatures get a lot warmer so that my asthma doesn't act up, but I'm hoping to get outside consistently after the Around the Bay 5k (which falls nice and perfectly into my training plan).

What are you training for right now?
