Ran the “Three Parks Run” today. Finally started incorporating the training routines from Runner’s World magazine into my run. I’m following their suggestions for training for a 10K — want to be ready for the Nike Run Hit Wonder on August 1st. Today was mini-speedwork: In the 3 miles, I did 4 “gentle pickups” — gradually picking up speed over the course of 100 meters, then holding at about 90% of flat-out for me for 10 meters, then slowing back down until I fully recover. It was fun and easier than I feared.
I’ll post the full training schedule here soon. Or if I can find a link to it, I’ll post that.
