Runners world training plan

Dups profile image

I’m not very good at interesting posts, but for anyone that might be training for a HM in the future that hasn’t ran one before, I would definitely recommend Runnersworld training plan for beginners ( for those who can run 10k). I’m in week 11 with one week to go before my first HM in Newcastle. It incorporates short runs, long runs and runs with hills 🥵. I feel it has been brilliant preparation work enabling me to hopefully get round in one piece. Today I ran 11.26 km ( 7 miles) achieving a PB for 10km, shaving 1:55 off my previous. So 1:04:54. I’m elated. Feel like a winner already 😂

Good luck to everyone running a HM in the coming weeks 🤗

Thank you . Retirement sounds great. I’ve got 4 years left to work. Can’t wait

It doesn’t look so rosy when you get really near, I’d love to be 4 years younger lol,

Thank you. Congratulations on your 10k 👏👏👏 It is amazing what we can achieve with determination and of course encouragement from this brilliant forum. Last year I would have laughed if someone said I would be running a HM. Hope to see all your future milestones posted. Build up slowly and I’ll watch out for your 10mile post. Good luck 🤗
