I have done a poor job of staying on track so far with my training for the 10K in June. I am behind by 2 weeks according to the plan I’m using and I am facing the 5K in April with less than 4 weeks of available time to get in any measurable training effort. I am not as concerned though as maybe I should be for a couple of reasons.

And so it begins. I didn’t think I was going to get this run in – left work late and with the sun still setting before 6 pm that does leave much time to warm up and get the run in. First run of this training program and it was supposed to be an easy 2 miles at a slow pace – 11-11:30 minute pace. I ran it faster than that. Didn’t feel like I was running to fast – although there were a few stretches where I kicked up the pace because I wanted to see if I could.
Here are my splits:
February Goals Update:
Complete a 6 mile run by 3/10/13 – Longest 4.67 miles on 10/6/12
I will run a total of 32 miles by Feb 28, 2013 – 9.9% Complete (3.17 miles)
I like to listen to music while I run – especially heavy beat, fast paced music. I’d be interested in getting additional suggestions if anyone has any – below is my current playlist.

I am a little under 4 months away from my first 10K race – so it’s time to get back to training. This will give me 16 weeks to strength my right knee and hope the patellofemoral pain stays at bay – while working my way up to the 10K distance.
