What Rich said, plus squats and lunges to avoid knee problems. And have decent trainers!

Sub 50min 10k/Sub 1h 50 half marathon

I'm off training for the next month, mainly for pyscological reasons! I want a month to party and do summer holidays before I crack back into it otherwise I think I'll go bonkers! So for the next month will just run once a week (ideally 9miles as that's my home to work distance) and otherwise will swim and do spin classes and work on strength training.

Next half marathon lined up for 26th October, Richmond. By the way I have a space going for Wimbledon half on 12th October in case anyone needs.

Don't worry Nicole ... I was convinced i had this in the bag given 2 sub 48 10km ... But the heat .... Oh the heat .... So many people collapsed by the sides, and so many more walking at the end. I did 1:53.29 ... a minute off pb and way off target. But I think it was one of those races that was just good to finish!

Have realised I struggle with hydration in hot races ... Despite feeling desperately thirsty the whole way I still had to stop to use the ladies! Did the same at London mara last year and I never have to stop in training.

Against the advice I decided to do the full out 10km race yesterday (did Richmond) mostly because I am curious to see if it will have a positive effect as the RW program suggests and I've got another HM in 3months to make up for it if not. Did another sub 48min 10km so hopefully should be comfortable with my first sub 1:50 HM at Hackney this weekend .... if my legs stop aching in time.

I'm doing the hackney half as well with an aim of sub 1:50. Previous PB was 1:52:30 last year but a few weeks ago ran a 47:45 10km so think it's looking good.

Following the RW ultimate HM schedules ... was a bit surprised they recommended a full effort 10km race the week before the HM. Has anyone tested this theory?

Long hours and no lunch breaks here as well. Only one thing to do, run all/part way to/from work. Takes organisation (leaving clothes etc at work or getting used to running with a backpack and having somewhere to shower) but def worth it when you are short on time.
