How I Trained For a 10K Run in 2 Weeks.

Well, this makes me feel better!
 
I was getting panicked about my upcoming 10K. But looking back on my calendar, it turns out I only trained 16 days for my last one. I didn’t run at all from the 10th Janurary 2014 until the 1st March and my 10K race was on the 16th March.
 
I had it in my head that I had trained for months. Ha. 
 
Most 10k training plans are around 8 weeks long. But this goes to shows that you don’t need to train that far in advance. I mean, you should, if you want a decent time. But it’s not a necessity. 
 
I would say that when I started training for this, I was probably just as good as a beginner. I had been slacking on running and had lost my fitness. 
 
In 16 days, I had been able to shave off almost 2 minuets off my average pace!

    Hi Corinne! I didn´t know you had a fitness blog! I love cycling too! As for the other blog, I loved your dress, I agree with you and the pattern is really lovely. Kisses and nice weekend:)

    I’m trying to get motivated to start running again, I used to go every other night just as a way to keep fit & really enjoyed it, I’d always feel so great after going but then life got busy with work/family things/etc & I got out of the habit of going! I think I need to sign up to a run so I will have something to focus on which will then encourage me to train! (:
