In April I started out my training with the C25K app. I finished in early June and signed up for a 5k.
I started training with the Runkeeper app for the 5k and on August 1 I ran that 5k and really enjoyed it. So much so, it got me to start thinking about what else can I do.
I found a 10k and signed up for it. I started training for the 10k using the Runkeeper app as well. The training had intervals, strides, speed work, tempo runs… I really enjoyed the variety and challenges. Over the early fall I had a few set backs with my training but persevered. The 10k ended up getting called off due to the remnants of Hurricane Patricia, but I did a ‘virtual’ 10k the weekend after.
The weekend the race was called off, I decided to go for it and start training for a half-marathon. I found one in February that looked interesting and I have another one lined up for April. I have been training with Runkeeper again for the half.
I didn’t start tracking my mileage until I ended the C25K training. As of Jun 11, these are my running states
I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds for me!
