Hello fellow runners, I have just started to train for my first half marathon which takes place in Birminghma on the 26th October 2008 and fingers crossed I have entered the London marathon 2009 (but not a confirmed place yet). Started my training last week and ran 3 miles Tuesday/Thursday with a 5 mile on Sunday. 5 mile time was 43 minutes which I did not think that was bad but as I am on my own I wouldn't really know. I must admit I am terrified by the thought of the London marathon but hey loads of people run it so why shouldn't I. I am aiming to run 3 days this week 5 mile each day and then look to add a mile each week for the next 5 weeks which will take me to running 10 miles 3 times the week before my half marathon. I think that sounds like a good plan. Any views/thoughts glad to hear em.
