Next up: Running Announcement!
Yeah, so did I…
I made a decision about the Tel Aviv Marathon and signed up for the Half Marathon (21.1km). If you’ll recall, when I ran the Full Marathon last year I said there were a few things that would have to be different for me to run it again. I would need to: a.) run with a group, which would require me to, b.) run faster, and in order to do that, I would need to, c.) drop some serious weight.
I did lose weight, but not enough to make a difference yet. I did try my best to put a group together but they are not ready to commit to the Full Marathon this year (I aint getting any younger people!). Lastly, despite several weeks of training, so far I have not increased my speed by a second. Why? Because I keep increasing my distance. Heck, I’m up to 17kms already, so basically, I could run the Half today! But if I can stop working to increase my distance to 42kms, then I believe I can work more on speed.
I do not want to run another nearly 6 hour marathon all by myself. It would be the exact same race as last year, blech.
Therefore, the plan is to work my butt off for the next 14 weeks until the race and try to get as close as I can to a 2 hour Half Marathon. Then, next year I can think of training for a 4 hour Full.
Fourteen weeks people in Israel. Even if you are a couch potato, you can be ready to run a 5k or 10k in 14 weeks. If you are a casual runner, 14 weeks is more than enough to get ready for a Half Marathon. Hal Higdon’s free plans are HERE. Come run with me!!!!
