I am thinking of running in Melbourne in October. Well I have been thinking that all year but I am now making my thinking official. Initially at the start of the year I was thinking seriously about running the marathon…it is 6 weeks after the Adelaide Marathon. Just this last week i have decided that the Half Marathon is more realistic and that I should try and get my HM PB down under 1hr55min. At least doing the half the trip will be enjoyable but won’t kill me.
Yesterday I allowed myself a rest day after my body told me it needed one, but this morning I was up and out the door before 6am…even if my body was a little reluctant. I ran 9.3k at a reasonably slow clip (just over an hour), as you might have realised I am not into speed training. I am planning a middle distance (about 16km) slow run tomorrow to bring my May total up over 200km and my weekly total up over 40km.
