Yeovil Half Marathon 2015 Training update,

So the training has been going better than i thought : ) January 04 2014 i tracked 8.51 miles in 1 hour 42 minutes 52 seconds On January 08 2014 i tracked another 8.75 in 1 hour 40 minutes 44 seconds, On January 12 2014 i ran 9.80 miles in 1 hour 55 minutes 46 seconds.As i mentioned previously i only came back into running May 2014 after a 14 year break and these runs are really important as most of my training has been a running/walking,i have to recondition my body to get use to the challenge ahead,so these few runs i have been really pleased with.I cannot class these as long runs because the long runs are around 11 miles and more,but my target is to reach that distance.As this is my first half marathon my aim is just to get around and finish it but be great to get under 3 hours if possible.

I have been reading a lot about Jeff Galloway the American Olympian and the author of Galloway's Book on Running,what a great legend.Jeff is known for the  Run Walk Run method which i am using in my training.As jeff said when you hear huffing and puffing, take more frequent walk breaks and slow the pace.

Principles behind Run Walk Run:

• Continuous use of a muscle will result in quicker fatigue

• The longer the run segment, the more fatigue

• Run Walk Run is a form of interval training

• Conservation of resources

• Quicker recovery

• Less stress on the “weak links”

• Ability to enjoy endorphins

• Reduce core body temperature
