All the training and know-how you need to conquer your debut 13.1-miler in style
If you’re fairly new to the running game, or just not one for clocking big distances, then the idea of a half marathon may seem like a mountain to climb. It certainly represents a huge achievement, but the half is a distance that’s truly accessible to all runners. You included.
Our rookie-to-race-ready training plan will gradually build your endurance and confidence to get you physically prepared in just 10 weeks, and our expert advice will give you all the necessary knowledge to handle training and race day like a seasoned pro. About the only thing we won’t do is carry you over the line – that satisfaction will be all yours.
No you've got loads of time if you apply yourself. If you make those 4 runs part of a plan you will be ok.
Hi Claire, well done for signing up! You have lots of time. Assuming that you have no injuries or illnesses which might require customised training, pick one of the Runners World training plans and follow it each week (printing it and sticking it onto the fridge might help). Follow a healthy eating plan and make sure you rest properly between runs. I ran the Macclesfield Half last year and really struggled (i'd trained in London on flat terrain) so make sure that you train for the course if it's hilly. It might be worth ditching the other cardio stuff and just focus on running, stretching and core strength - and eating a shed load of carbs. You might not have time for much else!! Let us know how you go and enjoy it!
Doing a marathon is a very pleasant thing. You can meet many people in that arena. You can also get acquainted with a lot of runners who are new.watch house online
Running a marathon is mostly done by those who really like the outdoor activities. Many people who follow the marathon and hope a lot with that race.aftermarket wheels
ive just booked into the full marathon for October (Chester!).. better get training hardcore now.
Take it the half went well then Claire?! It's a fab race isn't it and perfect running weather yesterday. Good luck with your move up to the full distance.
Claire u need to up distance a little to enjoy race more. Work your way up to 12 miles running at 7/10 perceived effort.
