Decided I wanted to get a HM in before my birthday in December so have booked the Great Birmingham Run on 13th October! Any tips?
Booked my first HM!😳: Decided I wanted... - Marathon Running ...
Marathon Running and Race Support
Well done. Sounds like a great event!
Other than the obvious ones of training, preparation, etc. I would suggest you get as familiar with the route as you can. It is good to know what you will be facing, i.e. hills and when. I also like to have a fair idea of where I am on the route, not just from the markers, and where I am going to next.
If you can train on the route or part of the route (even once) it may help you when you come to the day.
Yeah get training 😃💪👍. Get a good plan
Good luck 😃
great goal!! go for it
Start fuelling properly 👍🏽
Yea, just relax and do it 👍🏻🤣😉
Yep. Train 3-4 times per week, every week. Do intervals, short and long runs. Do it outdoors regardless of weather conditions. Any shortcuts? Nope. Just go for it!
Congrats on signing up. I don’t know if it has been mentioned, but you should also practice fuelling and nutrition strategies.
Oooooo how exciting JB, can’t wait to hear how you get on - with pics of course! 👍👊
Good luck ! I’m sure you’ll get lots of advice from the experienced hm ers.
