Last year, the Run For The Grapes was my first official race since I started running again after about a 15 year hiatus. It was a fun race last year, (Recap Here), as I ran it with my husband and my identical twin sister. My time for this race was 27:54. I have improve my time drastically since then. My current P.R., which was set in April of this year is 26:26 (recap here). (Hint: Keep track of your P.R. using my Free Downloadable Running Log.
I have committed to run again this year. I will be joined not only by my twin sister, but another sister of mine as well. This will be so much fun! My goal is always to break the 25 min for a 5 km. I’m inching closer. Each of us will be sporting a Branded RunMommyRun tank that I had made. The back is personalized with individual messages so I can’t wait for all of us to run together.
So, I’m back to training for a faster 5km. I’m changing my approach however. Instead of using the coaching part of miCoach app on my iPhone, I downloaded a plan from Women’s Running. It’s a twelve week plan, and I don’t have 12 weeks, so I’m going to use it more for inspiration.Link up with @fitcheerldr & @RunningRachel for #MotivateMe Monday if you need some motivation!

Last week my training looked like this:
Tuesday: 30 Min Nike Training Club Workout (I was sore for 3 days after)
Wednesday: 2 x 1000 meters, each under 5 min (Booyah!) with 400 meters rest in between
Saturday: 5 Km run at an easy pace
This week, I’m hoping to accomplish:
Wednesday:easy 5 km run
Thursday: 3 km Tempo Run
Saturday/Sunday: 6 to 8 km long run

Anyhow, I hope you have a great week ahead. Any interesting plans?
