I have been running for almost a year now and did the 10k run/walk program. I love the idea of having my training mapped out for me so I know what I am doing and when. So my question is what can I do next to keep me running and motivated? I love the run walk programs because I never thought I'd run 2 miles let alone 4 and I was able to do that. So any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Welcome to active.com! In order to stay motivated, it's a good idea to target a few races that you want to focus on each year. That way you always have a long-term reason to get out and run each day. In terms of developing a training calendar, I like the SmartCoach program that is linked on the Runner's World homepage. Please let us know if you have any more questions or comments.
Good luck and happy running!
