Half Marathon Tribe

I was going to post some information about booking for a popular half marathon becoming available today but could not find a half marathon tribe. So here it is!
Post all your info, dates, results and photos here as well as training tips and questions.

Jane M Half Marathon Tribe Tribe

Contributorbronze Jane M Hi everyone, glad I found this tribe :) My first half marathon is in Blackpool in April and my longest run to date is 11 miles. I run 5 and 10k's, mixing up training with occasional intervals, tempo runs and hill repeats, with 30 miles a week walking the dogs thrown in. I hope I've done enough, the long runs seem ok - just taking them slowly at conversational pace and bringing a friend to chat to. That way the miles seem to roll by without us even noticing them I have only done 4 runs so far of 8 miles or more though.


That's a great time for a first half! Congratulations! Too bad about the rain, but with only 3.1m to go - no place but forward.

Jane M encouraged this.


Congrats to your friend, too, for running even though just getting over an illness. I just realized that I didn't tell you about chafing. I hope that someone told you to wear some BodyGlide.

Jane M encouraged this.


Chafing never happened, I'm glad to say. A blister on my toe did, for the first time whilst running. I'm putting that down to the shoes getting soaked. Hopefully!

Kathleen W encouraged this.

Hi Nelson, I would go back to week1, see how I felt, then pick up week 3. Listen carefully to how you are feeling then perhaps short track the program so it does fit within the 9 week window before the half marathon...
