Age Concern UK - training for the 10K run - Day 2

For those of you who are interested, I am running 10K for Age Concern UK at Crystal Palace on March 10th - full details here  -

Wanna join the team? Sign up and get in touch. The justgiving page will follow. 

I'm tracking my training and preparation here. At the weigh in on Monday I was 95 kilos (just under 15 stone). I plan to run four days a week Mon -Weds & Fri,  Sat is a rest day and Thurs & Sun I play five a side football. I will post all of my training details here as well as my progress.

Here is todays run -

Here is my progress -

Today was a hard session, but actually physically easier than my session on Monday when I ran the same time and did less distance & cals (not logged). Early days, but a good start to the training. We've started recruiting other members for the team as well!

For anyone planning a run, it is good to use a tool like Mapmyrun. It helps set goals and monitor progress (maybe I'm just a nerd about such things, but it motivates me!).

If you want to join the team, email me via the link in the top right hand corner of the blog.
