Raymond 10K Training

Ever since I knew we were going to Alberta this Summer, I've wanted to run the Raymond 10K. I grew up running it every year, so it will be great to run again. Brandon made me a most excellent training program and I've been following it pretty good. So far...here is my training log. This just has running, I've left out the cross training days...maybe I should start adding that. I'm not very fast, but it's fun! I'll try and post my progress every couple weeks to keep me honest.

5 Min Warm-Up
5 Miles Progression...I did really well at the start, but by Mile 4 I was beat and running up a hill. I need to do progression steps every 2 miles, not every mile...whoops. And I had the GPS set wrong, so I don't know my mile paces, just the average. I walked half of mile 5 uphill, so yeah!
Average Pace: 9:43
5 Min Cool Down

Fri May 8
Ran 30 minutes just easy. The GPS wasn't working, so I don't know my pace. I felt good and just took it easy.

15 Min constant fast...I didn't know if I had the GPS set right and I thought it wasn't working. I came home after only 11:21 with an average pace of 8:42. I needed to get home so Bran could get to work too. Need to wake up earlier!

How do you know what pace you are running at?

From my GPS, Garmin 20?? It looks like a watch, but I don't remember the model we have...it's great!
