Signed up for Windsor Half in September. Have done 2 previous halves in 2007 and 2010.
Going for consistency and focus in my training as have lacked in past. 6 months to get a good base. So building up to 5 runs a week then increasing mileage to 25-30 mpw. Already strength training x2 pw and pilates 1xpw.
Tennis club is starting up again end of April. Would be lessons/games 2-3 times pw. The running will help my tennis. And would train muscles I'm not using in the running. Quite tempted.
Alternatively, our local pool has good lap sessions first thing weekdays and most weekend. Been trying to build up my endurance in fc. Feel I need 3 days pw to progress.
I've heard that neither is that great as a cross training option. The HM has to come first. But I'd quite like to do something 'aside' from the HM training to keep my enthusiasm up. Cycling isn't more than a casual option as I wouldn't go on the roads as I have concentration/ attention problems that make me a massive liability.
Can anyone recommend one over the other or suggest an alternative I may not have thought of? Many thanks.
