Good time to aim for - first HM?

Posted: 30/01/2015 at 16:34

A mix of what Boo & PSC say. Three runs a week is sufficient to get you round the HM. Use the fourth session to cross train, perhaps? I did my first HM massively under prepared (one 11 miler the week before!), but took it nice and steady and really enjoyed it (well, except the last mile or so ).

Good luck

Ahhem, Wenty, I already have a very nice GFA London place but I will be deferring. I am nowhere near running properly – I can barely string 400m together. Young Tiny was getting excited for me

I’ve been doing naff all, Marrows. When I first broke it (end August) I was determined I would do core, upper body, blah blah. The reality was I sat on my arse for 11 weeks until the cast came off. And got fat!  Then I had minor surgery on it and was walking like Frankenstein until just before Christmas. Since joining a gym at Christmas I have come on massively. I have about 97% range of movement in it, just working on the ‘springy’ strength stuff now in order to get running without a limp.

I’ve missed you lot!

Ramjet, I once had to do an 18 miler round the perimeter path of my local running track because it was the only snow-free ground I could find. It's a half mile loop, so 36 times round and round and round with not a soul in sight, as the Island had gone into snow shut down. Not my happiest running memory!

Tim - I was just wondering if you'd heard and was just about to check twitter. (I used to use RW forum loads, but with my absense from running, well, ya know! )

It goes without saying, fingers and toes crossed for you!

Well, 'running' in the loosest sense of the word, but it's a start! I still don't feel right but it is a start and (hopefully) a move in the right direction

Rachel & Menn - What have you done to your finger and shoulder? Are they connected

Oh lord! 20 miles on a dreadmill! That deserves a medal in itself, Stew

In other news I tried 10 x 1 minute 'running' last night. Well, more of a clumpy, one sided jog, but it wasn't a complete disaster.

Anyone else Hate running

Why is it a silly question Gideon? Lots of people go the the gym, swim etc to keep fit/lose weight but hate it! He's just trying to canvas opinion...

Are you in Scotland Lit? Thought you were Notts?

No snow on Isle of Man - bright and sunny at the mo

Anyone else Hate running

As soon as I saw this subject line, I thought of you!

I hear ya. I have a love/hate relationship with running. I love the buzz of competing and achieving my goals but I actually hate the running bit and training!

As you know, I've been injured for so long so I would probably love it again if I could do it again!

I can qualify on time for 2015 (from my spring 2013 marathon time)...however, I'm recovering from a bad ankle fracture/dislocation and dont know if I'll be ready by October. Does anyone know if you can defer your entry (if accepted) to 2016? I understand this usually means having to pay again the next year.
