10k CHALLENGE RACE: JULY 2018

$55.00

Please note: if you don’t see a wave that corresponds with your race date, please check out upcoming registration dates and waves.

This aggressive, 12-week plan will take you to a rip roarin’ fast 10K (6.2 miles). Along the way, you’ll build your cardiovascular base with long runs; hit some hills to increase your leg strength; and have multiple doses of tempo runs, 800’s, and other speed-builders so you can mentally and physically get ready to let it rip on race day.

As your running improves, your mental toughness will also soar to new heights as you knock off challenging—but doable—workouts. You’ll also run a practice 5K in the middle of the plan to check your pace and hop in a race. (Hey: that rhymes!)

THE PREREQS: You should be able to complete a six-mile run and have run at least one 10K before. Having completed longer races like a half-marathon or marathon will also come in handy. An injury-free body is key; if you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit.

BIGGEST WEEK OF TRAINING: 21-26 miles.

LONGEST LONG RUN DISTANCES: three 9 milers; one 10 miler.

FIRST AND WORST (HARDEST) WEEK:

Product Description

The Train Like a Mother 10k Challenge: Race includes:

  • A mother-runner-friendly 10k training plan. This 12-week, aggressive plan will take you to a rip roarin’ fast 10k. Along the way, you’ll build your cardiovascular base with long runs; hit some hills to increase your leg strength; and have multiple doses of tempo runs, 800’s, and other speed-builders so you can mentally and physically get ready to let it rip on race day. As your running improves, your mental toughness will also soar to new heights as you knock off challenging—but doable—workouts. You’ll also run a practice 5k in the middle of the plan to check your pace and hop in a race. (Hey: that rhymes!)

  • Miles of resources. The Train Like a Mother Club provides plenty of accessible resources that will benefit your running and lifestyle. Your registration gets you access to the private site, where you’ll find helpful articles; video demonstrations of strength training moves and running drills that are totally doable (read: less than five minutes! truly!) and will keep you running strong and injury-free; and great recipes for fueling.

    You’ll also receive exclusive Train Like a Mother podcasts + webinars, where we’ll answer all your individual training questions—and entertain you on your runs. As always, no question is too basic or TMI.

  • Accountability—and camaraderie—galore. In addition to Train Like a Mother Club, you’ll also be invited to join a private 10k Challenge club on Strava, where you can track your miles, and a private 10k Challenge Facebook page, where you’ll quickly find an army of (funny, empathetic, inspiring) #motherruner teammates. You’ll share training tips, stories of good runs and bad, cheer each other on, and push each other out the door. Momentum comes from teamwork, and these Challenges roll on some serious #motherrunner momentum.

    You’ll also receive a weekly Challenge newsletter in which we have an advice column from Coach Amanda, gear giveaways galore, and discounts on training essentials.

  • A Training Peaks Account. This comprehensive training tool will help you chart the nearly daily growth of your endurance base. It also sends you a daily email with your workouts for today and tomorrow so you can plan accordingly.

FAQs

  • How do I know if this is the right training plan for me?
    To thrive on the Train Like a Mother 10K Race Challenge plan, you should be able to complete a six-mile run and have run at least one 10K before. Having completed longer races like a half-marathon or marathon will also come in handy. An injury-free body is key; if you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit.

    Some plan details:
    BIGGEST WEEK OF TRAINING: 21-26 miles.

    LONGEST LONG RUN DISTANCES: three 9 milers; one 10 miler.

    If that feels like too much for your running experience or your schedule, consider joining the 10K Run program.

  • Does the registration fee include a race?
    No. The fee is for the comprehensive training plan, unlimited support, miles of resources, exclusive podcasts, and swag package, which will help you achieve a strong 10K. Come spring, you will participate in the organized 10K of your choice; you can also choose to run a 10K on your own, if that works better for you.

  • Wait: So I have to pay for this Challenge and a 10K entry fee?
    Yep—and we’ve heard again and again it’s worth it. Staying committed and motivated during the days, weeks, and, yes, months of training can be ridiculously hard. If you can do that—and these programs are all about accountability and inspiration—race day becomes a celebratory victory lap, not a slog full of self-doubt.

  • Can you please explain the shipping charges?
    Within a few weeks of registration, every participant in a Train Like a Mother program receives a stocked swag package with some of our favorite training essentials. Domestic #motherrunners are charged $6.50 for shipping; international #motherrunners are charged $15 for shipping.

  • What if I realize this isn’t the right training plan for me?
    We definitely want this to work into your life and your running lifestyle. You can email us within 2 weeks of starting the program and we will set you up with another plan or a credit for an upcoming challenge. We will not be able to issue a straight-up refund.

  • What if I get injured or really sick?
    With a smart training plan, doable strength training, and advice on foam rolling and other self-care, we’re going to do our best to keep you injury-free. That said, if you have an injury or illness that totally slays your training, let us know. We’ll work with you to get you a credit for an upcoming program.
