As so many of us continue to be affected by COVID restrictions, we have a few ‘events’ to keep your motivation in tip-top condition!!!
WINTER SPEED challenge (over on the Bridge to 10k forum)
roseabi is running this challenge from Nov 23rd to Dec 20th - if you would like to join there’s more info here healthunlocked.com/bridgeto...
2020 DISTANCE challenge here on Marathon
Running from Dec 21st to the end of the year (more details on this very soon) - let’s say goodbye to 2020 in style!!!
NEW SPRING 2021 Half Marathon group
Yes, we’re starting a new Half Marathon group!!! The camaraderie of training and completing a HM in a virtual group has proved more relevant than ever in these challenging times!
★ Anyone can join the group (we do recommend that people have run 10K before embarking on a half marathon plan) - whether it’s your first half marathon or your 101st, whether you plan to run solo or in an official event, whether you’re part way through a plan or not yet started.
★ Following your own plan (with your own target HM date) we will share info, ideas and experiences, with a good helping of the support that HU is famous for!!!
★ From New Year, roseabi and I plan to write weekly posts to help keep us all motivated, encouraged and informed! Your input to these posts and discussions will be invaluable, but in the meantime do let us know how you are getting on (or ask any questions) either in a post of your own or in the weekly chat posts.
★ We recognise that anyone training for their first HM may be looking for help choosing a training plan. There are a plethora of plans freely available but the key is to choose one that will suit your lifestyle. Take a look at this post which will help you get started healthunlocked.com/marathon...
★ Let us know in the comments below if you are interested in joining this new HM group and we’ll start a new list of HUHMers (and set up a Strava club for anyone interested in following progress on Strava) 😊
Keep an eye out for more posts on the Distance challenge and the HM group - if you follow myself and roseabi, you should get a notification whenever we write a new post.
Happy running everyone!!!
