10K Plan

Alright, I thought I was ready for a half marathon training plan, but honestly I don't have that time commitment right now. Remember I am slow. Instead I downloaded a 10K Novice Training Plan. My body cannot handle running more then 3-4x a week at most. This plan has me running 3x which is perfect.

I then searched online for a race that would end right around that time and perfect timing has the Seattle Shore Run on Sunday June 8th. I ran the 5K a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.  Shortly after I decided on the Shore run, I received an email from a new Half Marathon/10K that is June 21st  - the Snoqualmie Valley Half/10K. This event might be new but it looks nice.  The website says:

The Snoqualmie Valley Half starts at King County’s Tolt MacDonald Park and winds for about half a mile through the park before picking up the very scenic connector trail along the Tolt River.  At about 1 mile, the course joins the Snoqualmie Valley Trail and stays on it for the remainder of the "out" section the course, before turning around and retracing the route, finishing at King County’s Tolt MacDonald Park.

Now I have to pick which one, if this was two years ago I would just sign up for both.  No clue which one I will pick, or if I will pick a different one.

Happy Tuesday.
