You can do this! – Week 2

Congratulations! You made it through week 1! Week 1 was about getting moving, and getting used to exercising 6 days/week. That takes some scheduling and adapting. If things didn’t quite go “to plan” make a decision on whether to repeat week 1 or move on to week 2 where we are increasing the length of our run intervals as we work towards being able to run a 5k in 10 weeks.

If you haven’t registered for the Meteor 5k but want to run it, make sure you register before 3/13 when the entry fee increases. This is officially entry week around here, Kacey and I have signed up for two half marathons (including the Martian Half) as part of our Flying Pig marathon training AND Tuesday is the opening of the entries to the 2013 Chicago Marathon – which will fill up within days if not hours of opening, so we will have our fingers on the keys for that one!

Anyway….enough about us! 😉 here is week 2 of your training plan. Don’t forget to join our Groovy Girls in Training facebook group to support, share and ask questions and also use the comments here to keep us updated on your training – everyone is welcome – whether you are a beginner or an experienced runner who is looking to give or get support.

I also added a page at the top so that you can easily access the posts related to beginner running.
