Physical Wellness Goal
I am currently working on a 10K training program and will try to find a 10K race to run sometime this winter or early spring. I will be finishing up my program in mid-February this year and then will be ready to start working on the 10K to 1/2 Marathon training. I am planning on running in the Dam to Dam 1/2 marathon race on Saturday, May 31st. My goal, like when I ran in 2012, will be to finish the race in under 2 hours.
After I complete my 1/2 marathon I will continue training for my first marathon which I plan to run on October 19th, 2014 in the Des Moines Marathon.
In order to achieve this goal I will need to stick pretty closely to be my 10K, 1/2 Marathon and Marathon training plans this year. Through training and eating better I am hoping to get my weight down to where it was before I broke my foot which will help me with my running too.
Have you ever ran in a distance race? Do you have any tips for me?
What are your fitness goals this year? What is the first step you are going to take to achieve your goal?
