2) To run the Stratford upon Avon half marathon in April faster than 3 hours
Currently non-existent but maintaining healthy BMI
I have been married 29 years, have three grown up children and live near the medieval market town of Stratford upon Avon. I am a slow but very keen runner and have survived 3 Half Marathons.
I'm Natalie one of the Leaders of the 13.1 Miles...Cause I'm Only Half Crazy Team. I just wanted to welcome you and invite you to participate on the boards and in the challenges. If you have any questions feel free to post on the boards or shoot me a SparkMail. Happy running! :-) Natalie
Thanks for your kind blog comments, Karen. I just got back from Physio and we have a plan and if I stick to it, behave and don't push it the 2 Castles is looking like a go-er. It's still 50/50 though. I've been given the clear for a small bit of cardio which will help and a good plan for the next 5 days.
You are right though, it is time to think of something else. Running should be pleasurable and at the moment, and before the injury, it was becoming something it shouldn't be. Thanks for your encouragement and support
Not yet, Karen. I am actually injured right now - pretty bummed as was supposed to be running Hilly100 on Sunday and have been training really hard - I think I have "Runners Knee" so might need a bit of time off. However, a half in October is the aim!
I can't choose between Cardiff and Oxford, but if you do Oxford - I will! The only problem is, both races are the day after the MCAA 6 stage relays that I wanted to do...
