The last time I wrote about running, it wasn't a positive post. I ended up with shin splints right before all the big runs I signed up for. I ended up at the sideline supporting my friends, but deep inside I felt like crying, because I wanted to participate too.
Spring is my sign to start running again. It gets lighter in the evening and that means I'm able to run alone after dinner. Next to a full-time job, it's almost impossible to go running in winter, because I don't run alone after dark. I run in daylight, I prefer sunshine and I don't mind hot weather. So, spring and summer is my time to shine!
The plan right now is to run a short round (about 5 km) one time a week on a workday, next to CrossFit 2 to 3 times a week. In the weekends I'm going to build up the kilometers. I started with 5 km and every week I'll add another KM. Right now I'm at 9 km and may 16th I have my first 10 km race planned, so I'm right on schedule. I'll stay on 10 km for a couple of weeks, before I'm adding more again.
This year I've signed up for:
May 16th - Nike Women's Run, Amsterdam (10 KM)
June 19th - Midzomernachtcross, Amsterdam (10 KM)
June 26th - Grachtenloop, Haarlem (10 KM)
September 20th - Dam tot Damloop, Amsterdam/Zaandam (16,1 KM)
