Happy Saturday, friends! I know there is usually radio silence on the blog over the weekend and lately there hasn’t been much talk of running, but today I am changing both!
While my plan is still run a half marathon sometime in the next 3-4 months, I am also wanting to work on my speed, so I am also looking at some 5k training plans. Right now my mindset is to not be too strict or hard on myself and run to have fun and be healthy. For a while I got burnt out on running and felt like I had to constantly be running 5-10 miles a day in order to be a real runner.
Anyways. Back to the 5k training plan.
My favorite badass lady Kelly Roberts is currently promoting some 5ks plans and I am loving them! While I am training for a fall half marathon, I love not being super strict and having fun with my runs. Plus, since I am needing to work on speed anyways, this 5k plan should help with that too!
Earlier this week, Kelly tweeted out this week 1 plan and I decided to loosely follow it (not gonna lie, the holiday and rock climbing kind of threw off my typical routine).
But here was the week one plan.
So if you’re looking for a training plan to switch things up, I recommend giving this a try!
Sidenote: look up Kelly’s blog, RunSelfieRepeat.com Also. Follow her on Twitter. She is inspirational and funny as hell. @KellyKRoberts.
