Doubling My Miles in 6 weeks
We have decided to train for a 10K which is 6.2 miles. We would like to be running 8 miles regularly before the 10K so that it’s not so difficult. We're hoping to run in the 10K Santa Run in Tacoma Washington on December 18th. We will need to double our miles quickly if we’re going to pull it off. Right now we're running 4 miles pretty easily. If you click on the link below it will take you to the training schedule we're following, however we're starting on week 3 and working up because we need to double to 8 miles not 7.
As I'm typing this I'm feeling butterflies in my stomach. It really does make me nervous to set this goal. I know I can do it because I didn't think it was possible to work up to a 5K so quickly. I'm going to set the goal and meet it!
