Increasing the Miles

I can’t believe that I haven’t updated this blog since the Fradley 10km.

Saying that, I haven’t actually taken part in any organised events so there hasn’t been very much to write about.

Since Fradley I’ve gradually been increasing the number of runs I do as my main aim for this autumn is to complete the Great Birmingham Run on October 20th. I’ve downloaded a training plan which officially starts on July 1st so *fingers and toes crossed* I’ll actually make it to the start line.

I have got a whole range of races before the Great Birmingham Run with the first race, the Bupa London 10,000 next Monday.

Hopefully I can beat my time from last year which was a shameful 01:14:33 i.e. the slowest 10km run I have ever completed .

Following the Bupa London 10,000 I have entered:

  • Great Midlands Fun Run – June 2nd
  • Aldridge 10k – June 9th
  • Shenstone Fun Run – June 23rd
  • Race for Life Sutton Park – June 29th
  • Olympic Park Anniversary Run – July 21st
  • Lichfield 10k – September 8th

I’m really looking forward to finally getting to see the Olympic Stadium and running on the track. Hopefully I will actually have some race updates for this blog.

Before all of these exciting events I’m planning on finally returning to my running club for a session tomorrow/Thursday and attending my first parkrun on Saturday morning. I have got the barcode ready all I need now is for someone to drive me the 7 miles to Walsall Arboretum.

Fingers crossed I will finally be making my parkrun debut in the near future!
