Has anyone signed up for Run to the Beat? I'm really excited, this will be my first ever HM.
I did the British 10k last week, so hoping to keep the momentum from that and build up some mileage. Aim is to finish and have an enjoyable time - not race.
How has your training been going? I'm thinking about joining a Nike Run Club...
The Nike Run clubs are free and they have pacesetters and 2-3 different distances. days alter between locations, but a friend of mine joined never having run before and she loves it. Another friend is a more advanced runner and she gets a lot out of it as well.
Not sure of your location, but go to the Nike Running UK facebook page and they have more details about locations there... https://www.facebook.com/NikeRunningUK/app_148920995187235
Had a look and it looks good although dont think they have one near enough for me (hertfordshire) Saying that - I looked into the parkruns too and although I have one fairly near ..time constraints and children dont really allow for me to get involved !
Thats why I love running - I am slow but it gives me some "me time" and I can go out whenever I have got spare time..races help keep the motivation up too.
Hows your HM training coming along (its about 14 weeks away now isnt it?)
I am down for this. I live quite locally so know the course well. The area generally is hilly but it looks like they've avoided any particularly steep inclines, although the part from Woolwich up Charlton Lane to Blackheath is a steady climb but shouldn't be too bad!
Training is going ok - have been gettin back into running lately doing 3 or 4 runs a week over the last 4 weeks with a couple of comfortable 7 mile runs in there - so building back up.
Did the Hastings Half Marathon in March and got a time I was really happy with but have been pretty lazy since then with lots of sitting on the couch and eating cake lol!
Don't panic the hills aren't too severe due to the route they've chosen! However running in and around Greenwich park itself can be really tough as I found out when I moved to the area a couple of years ago!
Hi everyone, this is my first half marathon and i am scared!! I only started running in April this year and couldnt even run a mile! I have done a few 5K races and a 10K and my training seems to be going well. I obviously need to get more hills into my training by the looks of the course!
I have also signed up to this, soon after I ran my first 10k in March. Training is going well, and I'm really excited. Aiming for sub 2 hours but will be overjoyed to finish! (Touch wood)
I have a torn my muscle so I cannot run this event now..
One place now available. Entry was £46. Contact me if interested. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Event starts and ends at the O2 in North Greenwich on October 28th.
I'd love to buy your ticket from you please Layla? - I've just sent you an email.
I'm really looking forward to it now.
I have been plagued with issues which have prevented me from training. Just as I recovered from a thigh injury I became ill and was on antibotics.
Once I excepted I won't be able to do sub 2 hours and I am just going to enjoy the day, my mood improved and my training is back on track, did a slow 15K yesterday and felt great!
I am doing the Silverstone half in March next year so I will work my time then.
This will be my first half marathon! Looking forward to it although having to miss at least a weeks training with a niggle i've picked up! Hope it wont effect me too much! Have trained up to 10 miles so far.
