10k CHALLENGE RUN: 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.

The Train Like a Mother 10K Run, a 12-week plan, is best for someone tackling a 10K (6.2 miles) for the first time, coming back from injury or pregnancy, or wanting to run a strong effort on 10K race day and cross the finish line with a smile on her face.

Optional Walk breaks are built into the workouts through Week 7; if you need to continue to take them after that, feel free. (Forward motion at any speed is the key.) You’ll run a 5K at the end of week eight, and we’ll help you use your finishing time from that effort to figure out your pace for the culminating 10K.

THE PREREQS: Athletes ready for this challenge should be able to run/walk three or four miles comfortably. It’s a good idea to have completed a 5K race and have a few months of consistent running or run/walking logged on your legs, but if you’re a newbie to speedwork, no worries: We’ll ease you into it.

BIGGEST WEEK OF TRAINING: 17-20 miles + two cross training sessions.

LONGEST LONG RUN DISTANCES: One 7 miler, one 8 miler.

FIRST AND WORST (HARDEST) WEEK:

Product Description

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

  • A #motherrunner-friendly 10k training plan. This 12-week program is best for someone tackling a 10k(6.2 miles) for the first time, coming back from injury or pregnancy, or wanting to run a strong effort on 10K race day and cross the finish line with a smile on her face. Athletes ready for this challenge should be able to run/walk three or four miles comfortably.

    Optional Walk breaks are built into the workouts through Week 7; if you need to continue to take them after that, feel free. (Forward motion at any speed is the key.) You’ll run a 5k at the end of week eight, and we’ll help you use your finishing time from that effort to figure out your pace for the culminating 10k.

  • 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; great recipes for fueling; and a members-only forum where you can ask any question or lend a helping hand to a fellow #motherrunner.

    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 with 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.

  • 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. At the end of the training cycle, 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.
