Which Plan is for me?

Ian - A 36 year old Sales Manager who had been running without a plan for 2 years, entering events from 5km to Half Marathon wanted to extend himself a little further and believed the structure and organised quality workouts within a plan could help him.  Ian purchased the 20 weeks Advanced Half Marathon Plan and whilst at some stages found the 6 day training commitment a challenge he was rewarded by a 9min PR running 1:21hr for his Half Marathon.  Ian now works with us as a 1:1 coaching client.

Half Marathon Race Day Tips

 
  • No new kit on race day – whether it be shoes, socks, vest, or shorts stick with what’s tried and tested.  Ideally you should know from training how each of these items is going to feel after a couple of hours on your feet.

 

  • Know your nutrition – there are a couple of really important elements to this, be familiar with the nutrition being given out on the day both the fluid and any gels or energy sweets, being familiar with and perhaps even getting use to what will be on offer will pay huge dividends, sometimes our body’s require a little time to get use to certain blends so find out what your race will use and practice with it in training.  Also think about how the aid stations will be spaced and what works for you from an intake perspective, practice this!

 

  • Look after your sensitive bits – be mindful of your sensitive bits, and be generous with Vaseline on race day morning, think about all those areas that may chaff! And one I learned to my own detriment do not under any circumstances cut your toenails in race week!
