I hinted yesterday about a new fitness goal and I’m really excited to share with you all what that is…
You may have figured it out from the title of this post, but I’m going to be training for a 25k! The Grand Rapids River Run 25k race is in May and one of my coworkers has been talking about training for it for awhile. It sounded really tempting but at the same time, running wasn’t feeling good and I didn’t want to push my body into something it didn’t want to do.
But I’ve really missed running and training for a race lately, thinking back to my half marathons and the year of 13 races, it was all just feeling so long ago. And then things happened and I ran 3 1/2 miles and felt on top of the world…then because for some reason running 3 1/2 miles makes you think over 15 miles sounds like a good idea, I decided to jump in.
I haven’t bought my entry yet, but I’ve created my training plan (an extended version of Hal Higdon’s half marathon novice plan with a lot of hot yoga!) and I’m really excited to dive in. I shared it with my coworker and we’ll be able to cheer each other on and really support one another as the runs get longer. I’m excited to be training again and as long as my body feels good about it, running the race come May!
