Half Marathon Training.....

I have a "block" close to my home that I run/walk.

It is a 4.5km round trip. A little hilly. Well lit.

The half marathon that I am registered for, and that I am fundraising for, is 22km

So I have worked out that I need to be able to do my block five times round to get myself to the distance.




So here is my plan - for each Sunday, between now and the half marathon on October 10th:

July - 9km (x 3 weeks)
August - 13.5km (x 5 weeks)
September - 18km (x 3 weeks)
September - 22.5km (x 2 weeks)
Oct 3rd - 13.5km
October 10th Race Day - 22km

Easy! Ha!

Gonna have to get up earlier and earlier every Sunday to make it round in time............

Argggh!

So, there you have my training.

If anyone hasn't sponsored me, please, I would love it if you could..........I am aiming to raise $750 for the Starlight Children's Foundation.
