So no pressure !

I was out running with several of my friends this morning , the weather lovely, clear Autumn sky , very blue , fantastic for Manchester . We where doing an easy 11:5 mins to a mile when one announced it would be really good for us all to aim high and do the Manchester half marathon next October !

Before we knew it we where all agreeing .

Sooo any advice folks? All will be gratefully accepted 👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣

The fact that you've got the best part of a year is great. Lots of the advice and HM training programmes assume you have a base. This winter might be a good time to base train.

That's what friends are for...

Brilliant post! I'm sure you'll get great advice on preparing for this new goal and just think how you're going to feel once you've achieved it! 😀👏🏻

Good luck, I am up for the Birmingham HM next October as well. I have no one to train with me.

Perhaps we should do " virtual " training together :-)
