So today marks the start of my fourth week of half marathon training. I would love to say that the last three weeks have shown massive improvement and that I’m becoming quite the runner but I can’t do that!
After struggling with my breathing (or more so my being unable to breathe) I’ve been sticking to interval training of one minute running followed by two minutes walking – it means I can complete my full distances instead of having to give up after a mile and a half, but I feel like I’m cheating and still can’t run any kind of distance!
I have been able to improve consistently on my average pace which I guess is a good sign, and going forwards I’m planning to build up my running time steadily, but with a day under two months until the half marathon I would be lying if I said I wasn’t really scared!
I guess I just have to persevere and remember that I’m not doing this for myself, I’m doing this to change people’s lives and make a difference in this world!
Why am I running the Tonbridge Half Marathon?
This is all about fighting poverty and injustice, and supporting Oxfam in the incredible work that they do to make the world a better place. So, please, if you could visit my JustGiving page and donate as generously as you can, together we can literally change lives. One billion people go to bed hungry every night. I’m not OK with that and you shouldn’t be either, so let’s join together and raise as much as we can!
