Running Training Plan

First, an image:

Running Miles

Now, obviously, during November and December I was still doing the Run5K (nee C25K) program. And in January I started my streak of running one mile, minimum, every day (#dailymileminimum). So that helps. But anyway…

I've graduated from C25K/Run5K, and I'm working on building a training program rather than aimlessly running around.

Here's what I have planned out as of right now:

Erik's Lousy 5K Training Plan :)
--------------------------------
Assume a race pace of 9:00.


Monday - Intervals
------------------
Now:	6 x 400 fast with 400 recovery
Later:	4 x 800 fast with 400 recovery
(Pace around 7:00?)


Wednesday - Tempo
-----------------
1) 1/2 @ 8:30
2) 1/2 @ 9:00
3) 1/2 @ 8:30
4) 1/2 @ 9:00
5) 1/2 @ 8:30
6) 1/2 @ 9:00


Friday - Distance/Endurance
---------------------------
3.5-5 miles at 10:00-11:00 pace.

Today being Friday, I ran a fairly comfortable 9:50 average paced 4 miles.
