Good luck   I am doing my first half marathon on the 14th October and currently running 7 miles max so you are much more prepared than me! Going for a 9 miler this weekend and 11 the following and then hopefully get round on the day.

Has anyone had NHS physio or will have soon?

First HM in 3 weeks, eek!

Posted: 23/09/2012 at 21:59

10k is my longest run, I've been doing shorter faster runs mid week and then longer at the weekend.  I know its ambitious, I was running 10k in 59 minutes before injury in May, I sort of assumed I would have retained a higher level of fitness than I actually have.

I drink 2-3 litres of water a day, I just make sure I have the pint before I go. 

I was looking at the energy gels, do you think they would help?

Not looking for a miracle, just a bit of advice thanks x

A new 10k in under 60 mins thread?

Well done Louise  Its hard without a running partner too! Pre injury I was doing 59mins so only just squishing 60! Now on 65  aiming to get down to 50 in a few months if the knee holds up!

Hey everyone

I am running the Oxford HM in 3 weeks and could do with some advice really.  I am struggling to get a balance between increasing mileage and not overdoing it, following a skiing injury in May, tore the medial ligament in my knee so only started running a month ago. Feel 13 miles is quite ambitious! Running 10k in 65 minutes ok (I know this is slow!) but am running out of energy.

Wanted some advice on what I should be eating before a run.  I drink a pint of water 30 minutes before which helps alot but at 5miles my energy just drops off.  I run in the evening after work about 5pm.

I'm doing some weight training twice a week to strengthen up my legs and also horseride 3 x a week (not sure how much it benefits running!)

Any advice you can offer much appreciated!  I have no time in mind, I just want to get round and currently run at 9k/hr
