My Turkey Trot 5k plans have been foiled, because I'm not going to be where I thought I was going to be for Thanksgiving, so that race is out. However, I'm still going to start with this training schedule and figure out the race schedule at a later date. This training schedule will get me running regularly, and that's good enough for me. I've found that just by getting our there and running, I improve.

To be honest, this schedule seems really tough for me, and I totally wasn't expecting to log so many miles training for such a short distance. I hope I can do it, but if I have to shorten some of the Tuesday and Thursday runs in order to get a good strength workout in, I won't fret. I'm trying to work on my speed, and this is my first attempt at doing any kind to speedwork or tempo runs, and I'm slightly frightened of the intervals on Mondays. We shall see.
