I started C25K last autumn and I did complete it though I never got sub 30 mins for 5K. With autumn's shorter days, colder weather, winter and the rain, did I mention the rain?? I did my best to continue running but I've lost a bit of the condtioning with my sparadic running schedule, personal life etc but I am getting back on track as it were. I have considered putting myself in races but have been a bit shy and nervous though I did register for the Park Run last year - still yet to complete it as sometimes I think I am running backwards, I am that slow! Anyway one of my goals is to run a half marathon and the one that I have in mind is over 6 months away! Well I put my name in the ballot so I may not even be picked but if I am......?!! I do plan to do some other races in between that time as training but what do you think? I believe that I can cover the distance as I've done a bit of long distance hiking in the past and at the moment I am around 10k but that is a combination of run / walk, more run I think (I hope!) My ambition would be to finish rather than a super fast time. What are your thoughts and advice?
