★ Are you aiming for a Half Marathon this Autumn?
We notice from replies to Irish Princess’s latest weekly chat post that lots of us are aiming for a half marathon this autumn. For some it may be the first, whilst others are veterans with many previous half marathons to their name. But right now we’re all in the same boat; either choosing a plan or just starting out in the early weeks of training!!!
★ A new group for autumn 2021
We’d love to set up another HM group so we can once again share our experiences, our questions and our support.
It will be slightly different to previous years insofar as we won’t be writing weekly posts for the group; instead please do let us know how it’s going in the weekly chat or in posts of your own (particularly if you have specific questions, issues or useful information to share).
★ Lots of useful information from previous groups
There’s lots of info in previous group posts which you can search for on this forum, but there are two pinned posts that you may find particularly useful (especially if this will be your first HM):
Half Marathon training plans 😍 How to find a good plan for YOU! healthunlocked.com/marathon...
Training for a Half Marathon; from choosing a training plan to hanging your bling 🏅 healthunlocked.com/marathon... (collated from the spring 2020 HM group)
★ Tell us your plans; we'll set up a group list
To kick the group off, just let us know what you are aiming for:
- The date and name of your event (if you have one in mind)
- The training plan you are following (whether you’ve chosen an existing one or made up your own - or perhaps you’re winging it this time!)
- Whether this is your first HM
We’ll add your details to an autumn 2021 group list so you can look for ideas or maybe see if anyone is doing the same event as you! You can find the list here: docs.google.com/spreadsheet...
★ Another virtual HUHM event?
Finally, we wondered if anyone would be interested in another HU virtual event this autumn? If there is enough interest we will put something together again. Just let us know in the comments below!
So, to anyone aiming for a HM this autumn, let us know what you're aiming for in the comments below, good luck, have fun and remember, you’re never alone! Keep sharing!!!
Here's to running and having fun!!!
