Bride here with some new letters after my name! Yes, I am newly graduated and awaiting the start of gainful employment. This also means I have a load of free time. Ahh what were my hobbies again?
Well, I decided to give running another try. Remembering that I enjoyed the 10K distance while training for my first and only half marathon, I decided to go for the St. Louis Rock ‘n’ Roll 10K on October 15. Runner is going to be a pacer and is training a friend for the half event, so I figured it would be fun to participate. Runner and I have always enjoyed Rock ‘n’ Roll races (Virginia Beach x 3). When I found out that the band Fastball would be playing the post-race concert, that sealed the deal!
I turned to the internet to find a training plan. I am following Hal Higdon’s novice 10K training plan. I’m in week 3 now and it has been going well. The last time I ran an official 10K was on Valentine’s Day in 2015 (brr it was cold!). You can find a nice recap here. My time was 1 hour and 17 minutes. My goal with the upcoming race is to smash this time. I think I can!
I’m cross-training with swimming and indoor cycling. So, I may be working myself up to attempt another indoor tri… baby steps, people!
