My 10K training has been going pretty well so far. I have been following the training plan pretty closely, mixing my workouts up between runs and spin classes because I’ve found that cross training is the best way for me to avoid injuries. I may not know very much about running, but I do know that running injuries suck…a lot. So varying my workouts and making sure I stretch after every run have been my guiding principles the past few weeks.
In terms of the race itself, the Rock ‘n’ Roll team recently released the Brooklyn 10K course map. There will be 6 different live bands performing throughout the entire race and I’ll run past some of them a few times. I wonder what my splits will look like after running through the areas where the bands are playing…hopefully I will pick up the pace!
I will probably venture to Brooklyn one of these weekends to run on the course a bit just so I know what to expect. Only 15 days left…I can’t wait!
