I signed up for a half marathon today and was just wondering if anyone knows which plan wud be best for me to follow - i was thinking of extra easy as i can have plenty of carbs with protein? Any suggestions?
Well done on signing up for a half marathon. I ran a 10k last year and would love to do a half marathon, think i will do another 10k this year and try half next year.
I would agree with you though, extra easy plan would be a good plan to use as you are getting a mix of your carbs and protein, maybe add a couple of green days a couple of days before the race itself but even then i would think extra easy would work just as well as you would stillbe having your carbs - a nice big spag bol, yummy.
I'd say the training is more important!! As long as you eat healthily then it shouldn't really matter which plan you follow.
I did a half marathon some years back and I trained a lot, it was still one of the hardest things I ever did though. Good luck with it hun.
ello if u want exercise tips.. do 10% increase every week. ASICS | Running Shoes and Apparel | Anima Sana In Corpore Sano | United Kingdom if u enter the details of the type of marathon you're doing and where etc they can set up a program for you free of charge. also take an ipod with your fav music. i was going to the london half marathon last year and got aminor back injury which put me off
also make sure u got the proper training shoes. if u want go to somewhere like decathlon as they can put a machine on ur foot and u run and they tell you wot type of runner u are and what particular shoes u need for the type of running u do
Good luck and stick to your training. Relax - you'll get round - and it doesn't matter if you don't run all the way - enjoy it. Save yourself for a good finish - and remember that moment you cross the line for a really really really long time!
