I can’t help with a training plan, but good luck with the race!  I did my first marathon last year and it was amazing.  You’ll be so proud of yourself!!

I came across a training plan online somewhere not too long ago..I am sure you can do a google search to find something similar…I just ran my first 5k race this past weekend and it was so great to get through it.

I ran a 5k two weeks ago.  It was a challenge but felt so good afterward! 

I would suggest you look up C25K.  It’s called couch to 5k.  It shows you how to start off slow and work up to a running a whole 5k.  I think it will help you with the 10k as well.

Good luck.  Keep us posted on your progress!

I would recommend the Hal Higdon training plans – look it up online 🙂

You will do great!

Congrats on the 10K!  They are not as bad as you think- you will do great!  I second the Hal Higdon training- I have run a bunch of races and a half marathon, and the races I have been most happy with have been the ones I trained with Hal Higdon… follow that, keep telling yourself you can do it- and you will do great!

This is the plan I’m using. I ran a 5k last year but the farthest I’ve ever been able to run straight through has been 5 miles…and that was on a treadmill, not a road. I’m going to attempt my first 10k May 1. I’m nervous, but between this and the dress, I’m more motivated to exercise than ever!

Sounds good to me! 🙂 Next week I’m starting the Higdon plan (the one I posted). Let me use a disclaimer: I’m not a runner. I never ran at all until 2 years ago, not even when they made us in gym class as a kid. So I’m not fast! My goals are to complete a 10k and to do another 5k this summer faster than I did last year (38:50, ouch!) I run about an 11-12 minute mile currently, depending on the distance. Personal best is what I aim for!

Ooh yeah, my gym has spin classes and I haven’t been to one in forever. I should try to make it back to one of those. I’ve been doing this circuit training class – it’s absolutely kicking my butt. I’ve seriously contemplated vomiting in the middle of it. But it’s a great workout!
