    You're not alone.  Some of us are always training for the next race.  Just remember to listen to your body while training so that you don't get injured.

     

    Good luck, and run (fast and) long!

    Re: 10k anyone?

    OK so I just started a 10k training program too!  Hal Higdon's intermediate 10k program.  I have been running 12-15 miles per week for years and have now successfully bumped myself up to 20-25 miles per week.  A lot of it was stuff I was already doing, interval training (speed work) and weight training twice a week.  The only thing I am doing different is I am taking two rest days per week (instead of one) and running a little longer distances on the other days so I make the overall weekly mileage.  Does anyone have any advice or thoughts about this?  It is mostly a scheduling thing for me.  I would love to run more days, just would have to get up really early to run those days...

     

    Good luck with your training to the OP!  When is your race?  Mine is in just a week or so, May 21...
