Yes, I will be competing in my first snowshoe race this coming weekend and some have asked how I am preparing. Well…I am running! Not usually on snow either. I have been out a couple times after the few storms we have gotten so far but for the most part I am running on the roads, trails or treadmill. I am one of those slow and steady runners…you know the tortoise and the hare I really need to get faster!! Those of you that are not YET runners….keep reading!
For those that have a running base, I came across a training plan in my Sept./Oct. 2011 issue of Women’s Running titled “Perfect 5K PR”. You can access the 1st plan online but the other two are print only.
Perfect 5K PR
Not up for these plans yet but need a plan and would like to start walking or running? Check out Couch to 5K or Beginner Triathlete's Couch to 5K. A great book to encourage you this new year… Courage to Start by John “The Penguin” Bingham.
Leave a comment or e-mail me if you need the plan e-mailed to you for larger/clearer print. Also, leave a comment so we can encourage one another in the new year!
