After having graduated in October 2012 and flushed from success after a 10k run in April, I rather stupidly entered the Cheltenham Half Marathon which is next Sunday. Now in April that seemed AGES away, but all of a sudden it is upon me. My summer "training regime" has been disrupted by the rather lovely weather - I can't run in the heat, but last Sunday I managed to run 12 miles in 2hrs 17mins (with a couple of water stops - I can't run and drink). Talk about sore legs on Monday morning! I did another 2 x 5k runs during the week and I have just done 10k as my training plan suggests I should be tapering!! Am I ready for next weekend? Probably not, but I am determined to get round the whole course, running all of it at my own pace. Just need to finish is 4 hours because they re-open the roads then!
Good luck to everyone else taking part in the event next week!
