The Human Race 10k

12 Jul

A couple weeks back, I signed up for The Human Race 10k presented by Nike. This is a really cool race because it will be held in 25 cities around the world on August 31st, and the last race of the day will be in Los Angeles.

Usually Nike holds some sort of race in the early fall that ends with a concert. In past years, featured artists included: Vanilla Ice, Naughty by Nature and MC Hammer. This year, it is KANYE WEST! Not too shabby.

The race is 50 days away, so I have just enough time to get myself in running shape for this. I’ve spent the last few months focusing on my strength and weight loss at the gym. Although I’ve kind of fallen off the wagon over the past couple weeks, due to my ridiculous social schedule, I am ready to start training again.

On Monday the 7th, I started my training program that will end on August 31st with a 10k. During the weeks ahead, I will mix up maintainence runs with cross training. Also at the end of each week, I will have one “long run” that will get longer as the weeks pass.

Below is the training program that I have created for myself. I used a similar program for my past marathons:
