Welp...i suppose it's time to actually come up with a training plan. Boo.
Here's what my schedule is looking like as far as time goes....
5k for Kenna....April 2nd. Personally i feel like i got this....when i run, i try and always run at least 3 miles. I know i won't die and/or look like a fool in front of the whole town of Bucklin America (ever been? it's ginormous!!)
Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon/ Garden City 10k...May 1/April 30. No I am not running both....there may be some circumstances that make one or the other a better option. I really really want to run the Oklahoma City one...no way in hell would i be ready for the full marathon, that's crazy talk.... heck i wouldn't even be ready for the half yet!! BUT you know what i would be ready for???? A RELAY!!!! They split the race up into 5 parts... 10k, 5k, 12k, 5k, 10k. I would run one of the 10's probably. I think it'd be super fun. BUT...big BUT....i may need to stay here in town that weekend (I feel like EVERYTHING is happening on that same damn weekend, it's stupid!!). I should know more in the next day or two if it's going down the 30th or not.... maybe someday i'll tell you the reason...maybe.
Rock n' Roll 1/2 Marathon Chicago....August 14th. The MIL and myself will be heading out to the windy city (chicago has NOTHING on DC!) to run ourselves a little 1/2 marathon. Scary.
I realize that's three months inbetween the 10k and the 1/2....so i think i'll find me another race in there somewhere. There's a few in Wichita i'm eyeballing.
So i don't have a real plan.... but i'm going to attempt to make one up. Cause i like plans....and i like to follow them to a T. I get angry when plans are not followed to a T.....don't mess with my plans....seriously.
ohhhhhh k moving on. here's what i'm thinking for now till the 10k. Someone tell me if this is stupid....or if i need to add things/take things out. (week 1 starts today...goes in order or day...duh)
