Running plans

As I was sitting on my laptop few months ago, I clicked on a link about FitBit, the activity tracker, one thing led to another and there I was looking at activity trackers and running watches. I’d been thinking about it for the past year, but haven’t been brave enough to buy one yet. I just couldn’t justify the expense. It seemed like a crazy amount of money for yet another hobby. Then a friend said that if I really wanted to get faster, I should follow a specific training schedule and buy me a running watch to monitor my heart rate. So I looked a bit more into it and it happened that a friend of mine had bought a fairly nice running watch few years back on a Black Friday thinking he wanted to start running, but ended up never using it. He offered to give it to me and I was thrilled. So few days later I had a brand new running watch with a heart rate monitor and some other nice gadgets that came with it.

When the summer came and I was done with all the traveling and back to my base in Trondheim, it was time to make a proper running plan. I decided to work towards a faster 10K. I found a plan that suggests running four times a week. After a couple of injuries this winter, I decided to work towards my goals safely and follow a proper running plan. Here’s what my plan looks like.

Of course this is a 15-week plan and I know that some weeks I won’t be able to follow it, but I’ve decided that when this is the case I will re-do the last week. I’ve already done the first four weeks of the program and by the second week I felt right back in shape. Can’t wait to see where this gets me!

Do you have a FitBit?

  1. What a generous friend. I would love to follow your running adventures. I have a fitbit myself, just to see how much I would use it before investing in something a little more substantial.

  2. I’m on my second Garmin and love it. It’s great for working on my pace and just for tracking run distances without having to plan an exact route before heading out for a run. I hope you enjoy yours. I like your 10k training plan. I may have use it!
