10 mile half marathon training

I’m 3 weeks away from this years Brighton Half Marathon, which will be my third half marathon (second Brighton one).

My last few long distances runs have not felt good, and I’ve struggled.  Tonight’s 10 miles run felt good though, and I was pleased with the 8:15 miles average.  This is a good positive boast, and I feel on-track for breaking my 1:53 record from last year.

I also cycled to work this morning.  The ride took me over one of the highest points in East Sussex (Devils Dyke), so good training all round.

Building up miles for a half marathon

I’ve been a little blasé about my long distance runs for the upcoming Brighton Half Marathon.

I realised I needed to do 9 miles this week, and then an extra mile each week until the event.

Today I ran 2 miles into work. Had a rice and tuna lunch in perpetration for tonight’s 9.7 mile run home. The weather was pretty bad, and the first half of the run was tough. But I settled into a good groove and enjoyed the last half.

I feel in a good place for the run, but do feel like I’m still shaking off all of the Christmas over indulging.
