Four Villages Half Marathon

Loved it !!! It's 2 yrs since I've done a half marathon on Tarmac .( prefer mud and peat bogs ) but I signed up to help a mate out who is training for a spring marathon , and this was on the training plan . Loved the route , didn't notice any bad ups , just loved all the downhills . My mate got a pb ! Nice to have route closed to traffic . Lovely marshals . I'll be back deffo next year !

im going to do the full samir with my excuses and state my only half this yr was run in march in the height of the snowy weather with 20mph winds and a minus7 temp.  It would have been better but i didnt know about the performance enhancing qualities of wearing an orlando magic NBA top and sleaves. (top tip Samir)  



Dean....was,nt the wilmslow half was it..... was blinking cold either way.

Why don,t you join your local running club and run/ train with them?  that will keep you motivated.  running as a group becomes a social thing and  feels less like training. If you love your running regardless just keep doing what you have been doing, maybe take yourself on some off road routes at the weekends, mix it up a little.

Are my goals too ambitious?

Easily achievable, pick a nice fast/flat half and  you,ll be getting 1 hr 45 or less given the training your doing.As matt says intervals and tempo runs will help you .

A lot of talking the talk and not much getting out and doing it Samir. .....come on stop this nonsensical rambling and dedicate your time to your running and training.Thats what most athletes with your talents would be doing.


Suggestions for my first ever Marathon

the marathon is a whole different kettle of fish , and tests your body so much more than a half.what about getting a few more 10k and halfs under your belt through spring and summer and see how your training is coming on for an autumn  2014 or spring 2015 marathon.I would find a local one so you can get friends and family to support you on route .ITs amazing what a difference a full marathon is to a half  ,it's not just training  but experience too. and the more you do the better you,ll enjoy your marathon.
