I've employed my trusty RunKeeper app to train me. There's a free training program for 65min 10k for those comfortable running 2-3 miles. 61 training sessions. Ugh - that's intimidating. The alternative is worse though.
Part of my training is also doing a few strength and yoga sessions a week. Gotta stay strong and keep those muscles loose.
Additionally, I've signed up for the Kiss Me, I'm Irish 8k in March (see it here - come run with me!) to keep me on track.
Are you a runner? Let me know what races you're signed up for - I'd love to join you!
Here we go!
