I'm not sure if I should keep working on the 10K - lots of room for improvement there, or if I should concentrate on 5K for a bit, for improving my speed. I'm thinking maybe a 5K in March, then a 10K in May, then a 10 miler (16k) in July and a half in September. There are a couple other 5k's I want to do also for fun and for charities close to my heart. I don't want to lose the distance I've gained by going back to training for a 5 - not sure how to go about this all, so any help is appreciated.
I found a long training schedule for a half that could keep me focused.
Also, I'm going out tomorrow to buy new shoes. Right now I have Asics Gel Cummulus 10 or 11, but I found them hard in the heel, but pretty good overall. I had Nike Pegasus, a few years ago, that I really liked. Not sure what to get. I usually buy at the Running Room.
I tend to get men's shoes for the width, does it really matter if I get men's or women's?
So many things to think about. I'm still such a newbie!
I think this week I'll just run for the sake of running.
But by the 10th I want to be training for something.
