Do it for the fun!

Life can take unexpected turns at any time and you've clearly had an unfortunate and busy couple of months. What is it they say about progress? Even if its slow, it's still progress!

Don't give up x

Thanks, good luck to you too!

If you can do 7, the 13 will be fine, just use a running app and let it count down the miles for you for the last few. Like the 1p's make the pounds, the 1m's make the half marathons! Lol x

I live in north Birmingham and work on the east so if there's anyone out there who's local, get in contact as I think it'd be nice to run with someone for a change. (Birmingham UK) I run most comfortably at around 9 m/m...

Ok great thanks for the feedback, very reassuring!

Quite looking forward to it now - it's so tempting to push myself but I'd be devastated if I injured myself so I'll just keep up the usual.

I'm a bit concerned about needing a wee stop - been trying to not drink for at least 2hrs before a run recently and try to force anything out right before I leave the house - still I seem to need to 'go' at around 6/7miles in... :-/

Thanks for the support btw much appreciated...

No not at all - I only signed up the other day!

I wasn't planning on doing it as running is just a hobby for me, but due to the incident in Manchester last week, I decided to fundraise for Care of Police Survivors.

My runs range from 6m - 10m generally but I did a couple of half marathons last week, so I know what kind of time to aim for. They were 1:51 & 1:56 with decent inclines, so I'm thinking of aiming for 1:45 given that the route is pretty flat too. Do you think that is realistic?

I really want to give it my best shot though and get the best time I can.

Is there a 4 week training programme?
