For a few years I have gone to the gym, done half an hour on the x-trainer, and up to 5km on the treadmill and a few weights.
Recently some friends entered the Brighton half marathon and I had the urge to do likewise. A house move and other life events meant I didn't start training until 4th Jan, my training was started, knew I was hooked for life on running. My final long run 12th Feb was 19km.
Completed in 2:18:55 (Sun 19th) and feel great today, it hurt during the final 3 miles on the day.
Entered Chester half marathon 13th May and intend to do a proper training schedule as some training rules were broken to get to Brighton on Sunday.
I gave up beer/ wine for my training and am happy to continue this path, have two hours (more if required) available each day for training (more on Sunday), and am totally in love with running. Probably half a stone overweight (6'0" / 13st 10lbs)
How quickly/ long (months / years) would it take to get sub 2:00 for a half marathon?
Am I being crazy to think 1:30 for a half is achievable?
This year want to concentrate on half marathons, with the aim of my first full marathon next year, hopefully Brighton, loved the course
ps. hello and tia!
