I went ahead and signed up for the Colorado Marathon 10K AND the Bolder Boulder. Two 10Ks in one month! So I really need to get ready quickly, but I haven't found any training programs designed to get you ready for a 10K in 4 weeks. What I'm going to do is use a 12 week half-marathon training schedule that has a 10K race in week 10, and I'm starting on the week 6 schedule. Got that?
Today was supposed to be my "stretch and strengthen" day for this week, so I did a 75 minute Ashtanga yoga class. It kicked my butt -- my arms were shaking so hard when I got done that I kept missing the buttons on the microwave when I was heating up dinner -- but it felt really good, especially since I ran into some wedding planning issues earlier in the day (more on those later.) Tomorrow is a 4 mile early-morning run, so I guess I'd better go to bed now!
