The mass – annual Running event in Victoria is the Times Colonist 10K. . That is roughly 3 months from now, so the start of training is this week. Last time I participated (2003) I did the in-training clinic at the local community center.
This time I am going a little up tempo with the Running Room
The first night was 5.4 k at a 10 and 1 pace – 10 min run/ 1 min walk. This apparently is a signature of the Running Room programs.
So there will be some pain over the next couple weeks as you get into shape but there will be a day in April when it will all be worth it.
