Getting it Out of My System: A Half Marathon

Since I started running with Jennifer from AlanStrachanPersonalTraining.com got me into running I wanted to run a half marathon.  My life is pretty busy so the amount of training needed to make a worth while marathon attempt is out of the question, purely as I don’t have the time to train and all those months of training would kill my muscle gains and send my metabolism to basement levels.

But a half marathon (13.1 miles) was definitely appealing to me.  I had set my eyes on a half marathon or a triathlon for a big goal to motivate and inspire me to keep moving with my fat loss goals, but then I set my gaze on going to Premier for a diploma in personal fitness training, which I’ll be leaving for next Thursday (Aug 19th 2010).

But that darn half marathon has been chewing on my mind since April, you’d think it would have been finished by now!

I just can’t get it out of my head, I have to get it out of my system. But until there is a breakthrough in mind transplantation then I’ll just have to RUN A HALF MARATHON!

Now looking at when to do this; as I have said I leave to fly down to Bristol next Thursday, 10 weeks in Trowbridge; studying like a maniac and working out like an athlete, then after that I am going to be in need of a holiday (my wife and I are hoping that we can go to Indonesia for Christmas)…. So when to fit in a half marathon??

How about this Saturday? Sounds good!

Now as this is my last Saturday before leaving my family I have planned a route just a little over 6 and a half miles and then I’ll turn around and head home reaching the 13.1 mile target.

Here is my route;

This week I have relaxed my running schedule and I have been carb loading to make sure that my glycogen tank is full for the run.  I will go for a 2 mile run tomorrow (13/8/10) and then the next day I will set off for the 13.1 mile haul :-)

My initial goal for this is to start it running and continue running until I finish.

I haven’t set a time to do it, so if it takes me half the day, so be it :-)

I will be doing a video journal for this one and then will work on having it up on YouTube and embedded here by Monday :-) wish me luck!

I like this. It is bold and simple. Run your half-marathon, stay near home and let us know how it goes!

Hi BC, I am hoping to put a video blog up on maybe on Sunday or Monday :-)
Yeah my circuit is near to my house, about 7 miles out and then I’ll loop around and head back home.

Take care, talk to you soon!
