It has been quite some time since I last went for a run and this isn’t due to me being lazy or not wanting to, things have just been a little crazy.
But my mum and I went to cheer the runners on last Sunday at the Great Eastern Run, the half marathon around Peterborough, and it really really made me want to join in! So i have decided that I am going to get back into running and complete another half marathon!
I have had a look around the internet and there is one in February in Leeds and one in April in Sheffield. My friend Sam is doing the Manchester one, so I might join it with him. I still haven’t decided if I should just do one or go for both! I guess I need to see how the training goes first.
When I was training for the marathon last time, I found I trained slow therefore I ran slow, so this time I am going to start off with short distances, but run them at the pace I want to run the full thing in.
I went out on Thursday night after work and did 2.3 km, I have to admit I am so unfit and found the just running for 14 minutes was hard. I am determined to stick at it and try to be as fast as I can be. I am going to go out again on Sunday and try to beat the 14 minute loop. I will keep you updated.
