    Half marathon training

    Sorry for the delay in setting this up :-)

    This thread is for anyone wanting to train for a half marathon.
    My first half marathon is at Silverstone in March, then going to do the Great North Run in September.
    I am going to do 2 runs in the week at 10k, then a longer run at the w/e, which will increase each week.
    My first long run will be next w/e.

    Goals
    My medium term goal is to get below 10 and a half stone.
    My long term goal is to get into the 9 stone bracket.
    My dream is to stay there.



    Exercise

    oops
    I used to..........
    do 2 / 3 x weights sessions a week in the gym- (New Rules of Lifting For Women)
    Kettlebells in my living room - just have a bit of a swing from time to time when I can't get to the gym. Previously did Kettleworx program three times.
    Used to run -Did C25k then progressed to half marathon - have let this slide in favour of New Rules of Lifting
    Did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred -yeah, I looked trimmer but it was hell!

    Currently - very, very little. Some walking. Sporadic teeny bits of kettlebells. I've become LAZY

    You'll have highs & lows, good runs & 'bad' runs but that feeling you have when running the actual race will defo make all the pain, tears & struggles 100% worth it

    Me too me too - also the Silverstone half marathon.

    My plan is far wussier than Shazzabir's though. I'm thinking:
    1 x 5k run as fast as I can (currently 28 mins)
    1 x 40 min run
    1 x 60 min/10k run. This run I will progressively (and slowly no doubt) build up.

    I think the above is realistic for me for now. I will then start upping the longer run more significantly after Christmas, and hopefully get in another 40/45 min run too each week.

    From a weight point of view I'd really love to shed a stone and a half between now and Christmas, and make a good inroads into a further stone by Silverstone. We'll see.

    Good luck everyone, and thanks for the tips Summer!

    The one thing I found when training for the 1/2 was that my weight never budged. I was mindful of what I ate but never lost anything significant and quite alot of people experience the same so don't let that get you down if that happens x

    I wonder why that happens, as you burn loads of cals running. So far it's been the running that has been the main factor to my weight loss. Guess I'm lucky I'm almost at goal.
    Thanks for your comments Summer, really appreciated :-)

    Fantastic that you have signed up Pinkie!!
    That sounds a good plan :-)

    Thought I'd join the thread though not sure when I'll be doing a half marathon. Don't think Silverstone is realistic for me. x

    Thanks. I'm ok. Physio is suggesting a full "muscle/joint physical" so he can assess my strengths & weaknesses before I get back to any proper training. I guess it's a good idea so I don't incur the same injury again but it's a little annoying as I'm virtually back at the start of C25K training for now. I guess it's possible after I've seen him things may progress a little quicker but I'll have to wait & see. I've now got some sort of cold thing though so he's saying I should shift that before seeing him.

    The race was good thanks, we had a great time though it was a lot warmer & hillier than any of us expected!! x

    Not right now I'm not! If there's no closing date for applications I will keep it in mind though so don't worry. If I can do it I will. x
