(I wouldn't rather be sat on the sofa with a glass of wine, honest..)
Chelle, sorry to hear about the lurgy and well done on the 10k. I think I must be at the same sort of stage as you. I did a 5 mile race 2 weeks ago. I really am finding now that it's given me to confidence to start running further on training runs. Hoping to do 5.5 miles on Monday. Also, PB'd at the Parkrun today - first sub 30 time. Re: half marathon in October. I think it's doable. I'm hoping to do the Belfast half in Sept. Are you going to follow the Asics training schedule. I've looked at them, but the training pace just seems ridiculously slow. I've looked at the RW training plan and they seem realistic, and give a bit more info on type of runs i.e. tempo etc. What do you think about Asics? Anybody else got any advice on half training plans?
Been lovely weather over here this weekend - makes such a difference to be running in short sleeves. Hope everybody has a lovely Easter weekend . Watch the egg consumption
Chelle and Nicky, I also would like to do a half at the end of the year or maybe next year, not decided.
Not following a training plan just created my own, probably should look at one to see if what I am doing is way off.
Went for a nice run this morning: Week 8 : Run 3 : 8 miles : 1h09m37s : 8:42 min/mile
Hi Peter. Hope you had a good easter. Hope the knee doesn't continue to cause you more problems. Think I must be carb loading for tomorrow's run (my excuse) . Love hot cross buns . Have a good evening!
Just got back from a run, into week 9 now, did a PB for a 10k, pleased with that.
Week 9 : Run 1 : 6.2 miles (10k) : 51m00s : 8:13 min/mile
I just bought a Bluetooth Heart Rate monitor, this works perfectly with my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and Endomondo sports app, I absolutely love all the statistics I can now get all linked together.
Spinning for me tonight, hopefully run tomorrow...
