I am moving to Bristol mid-September to start a graduate entry medicine course. I am so excited about this but also very sad to be leaving London and all my wonderful Team Naturally Run ladies 🙁 It happens that the Bristol half marathon is the weekend after I move in and I thought it would be a great way to discover the city. Plus I still stand by my running tip that signing up for a race is one of the best way to keep motivated to run. For the past three years, I have run the Run to the Beat autumn half marathon. It’s the only half-marathon route I know and I am actually quite excited about discovering a new route.
I have 12 weeks to train and really would like to beat my 1/2 marathon PB and finish in less than 2h. I am still a bit undecided on which training plan to use. I just know that I don’t want it to included more than 3-4 runs/week so I can get a chance to cross-train. My shin has been sliiiiiightly bothering me, so I want to allow plenty of time to get stronger and stretch.
Do you have any training plan to suggest?
