Running

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!
