10k Training Program

Hi friends! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful time relaxing with family and are headed home today and back to normal life!

Hannah and Kathleen, two of my best friends, and I signed up to run a 10k together in April and I CANNOT wait! We are going to be running the Cooper River Bridge Run, in Charleston, SC! 

If you live in the Southeast you've probably heard of the Bridge Run because it is one of the most popular and fun races in our region of the country. An excuse to see Charleston, SC in the early spring? Sign me up! A way to get in some exercise before eating all the fried oysters I can? Yes, please!

So one of the girls I'm running with is a big runner like I am, and our other friend is more of a cycle girl... who hates running. Hannah knows how much Kathleen and I LOVE running, and sees how much her husband LOVES running, and has decided to give it a chance before she shoots it down. That being said, Hannah has never trained for long distance running before and is a little apprehensive about it (rightfully so, it can be intimidating!). Since I haven't trained for a race (or really even run at all) for almost a full year and am starting from scratch, I put together a little "Couch to 10k" training guide based off of my 2 favorite half marathon training programs. I am sharing it with my friends so they can prepare for the race, and thought I might share it with you too in case any of you have decided to start running in 2020. If any of you are runners I would appreciate your feedback on it! 

If any of you are also planning to do the Cooper River Bridge Run, I'd love to know! Or maybe if you've done it before? I'll take any tips/tricks you may have for the race!

Have a great weekend everyone! Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites.


  1. Your plan looks great- decided to run some races in 2020 after taking quite a bit of time off. You start missing it after awhile! Hoping adding some strength training this time around will result in no injuries. Happy running!
