Week 10 of the Garmin Coach 5K plan has me back to running after being sick for almost two weeks and made me change my my running plans for the coming weeks.
If you came here looking for more information on Garmin Coach, check out my Garmin Coach Tips.
The original plan was to run a 5K somewhere between April 4 and 7, but after missing four trainings in a row I decided I wanted to increase my chances of reaching my goal and postpone the 5K race. I have officially registered for my first 5K race ever and it will be on April 13!
The second thing I registered for this week is Parkrun! I live in the Netherlands, which for some reason doesn’t have any parkruns, but I’ve read a lot of positive things about it and I’m curious to try it out. Since I’ll be visiting Florida in May, I’ve decided to participate in the Clermont Waterfront Parkrun on May 11.
I’m really excited about both of these races!
Training 36 – Easy run
Training 37 – Tempo run
After a 10 minute warm-up Coach Greg wants me to run 10 minutes at goal pace, followed by an optional 5 minutes at goal pace and a 10 minute cooling down. I was really looking forward to this as it seems like a good way to see how I’m doing so far, but I was still not able to run and had to skip this training.
Training 38 – Easy run
Training 39 – Long easy run
