June 30, 2005
The Coventry Half Marathon is now less than 3 months away so with a cool breeze in the air I thought this evening would b the perfect time to start the training. My aim is to run it in under 1h30.
Although it's been over 2 years since I ran London, I thought it would be a good idea to plunge into the deep end and do the 13 mile distance straight away. As the map on the right illustrates, the run from my home in Malvern to the Powick roundabout on the outskirts of Worcester and back fits the distance perfectly. And with a cruel climb back up to the Powick Hill just after halfway, it provides a challenge which most road half marathons do not.
Well good news! I did the run in 1h39 so it seems a reasonable challenge to aim for 1h30! Letís hope I can keep the training up and I do not pick up injuries!
