I’m currently in my 2nd week of training for a 10k in March. I looked through different training plans online and settled on one I found on About.com. I chose a beginners plans because I have never raced a 10k distance before. I have ran 6 miles before but on my own terms, so I figured this was the safer route.
Here’s the training plan if any of you want to give it a try: 10k_PDF
The spring is a great time to get some races in, and races help with exercise plans (in my opinion). When I’m training for a particular race, each day is an obstacle. Therefore, I feel accomplished each and every day by sticking to the plan. So get out and train for some races! Plus, races are fun and give you such a sense of accomplishment, which is always good 🙂
