So I have run a couple of 5k races before and really it is very exhilarating. I really need to set myself a goal in order to keep myself on a workout schedule. Since I am not really looking to lose weight, I am really more interested in staying in shape. However, after the last 5k, I was talking to my in-laws and really think I need to push myself a little for my next goal. I considered either doing a bike race or triathalon. However, I like the bike more for recreational use and I'm not a strong enough swimmer to be competitive. Plus I don't have year round access to the pool so would have to wait until summer to train. Anyway, I decided to try and run a 10k (6.2 miles). I found a 13 week schedule that I like pretty much. http://www.jeffgalloway.com/training/5k.html#10k Even if I repeat a couple of weeks, that would put me as prepared to run a race in February or March so I have to see if I can find a good race about then. Of course, the weather around here being cold at that time of year, I may not find one until April. Now that is a sure fire way to get me to postpone the start of training!
