day 24 - and the proper training starts

A gym session today as despite my car thermometer saying it was fairly mild, it felt cold and miserable thanks to the constant drizzle. As my half-marathon training was supposed to start today it was a hard session. I was supposed to do about 6miles but didn't manage it - was really feeling tired towards the end. I am trying to work to a maximum of 2 hours for my half-marathon (though it is not really the flattest course), the Paula Radcliffe 'new intermediate' training plan is pretty hard and not sure I will stick to it but I am going to try!
I was hoping to do a decent weights session but the gym was far too busy and there were even people waiting in a line for the machines - I am way too impatient for that.

distance: 8.48kms
time: 50mins

  1. I'm very impatient at the gym too!

    Don't blame you for not going out in the drizzle. Yuck! It's been chucking it down here all day and I didn't have time to go to the gym, so I settled for the Wii Fit Plus! Not quite Paula Radcliffe is it? ;)
