So that got me thinking that maybe I could do a half marathon some time in the future. I was about a week thinking about it and the idea gathered momentum in my head and heart. A search began for one that wasn't too far away and to cut a long story short I decided on the Lancaster Castle Half Marathon on Sunday 21st September. This will be two weeks after I finish work for retirement. A celebration of a new found freedom if you like. For from the 7th September it will be for me to decide what I do on a Sunday. As most races are on a Sunday, those of quality and popularity anyway I will more than cherish the opportunities my retirement will give me.
I needed a training plan and found Run The Edge Premium 13.1. I'm 2 weeks into it now and really enjoying it. Already I can feel the benefit. I'll soon be able to run again at the pace I ran the Great Manchester Run 8 years ago. And I hope it'll help me get the weight off too.
More to come on my training.
