Ready to run my 26.2 miles…

Run I'm ready to run...I’m ready to run my 26.2 miles:
my Glasgow Marathon

I’ve had a build up of around 8-10 weeks of increasing my mileage with a taper week this week (with only one 7 mile run!)

Here’s the route I plan to run on Saturday morning:


Run to your limitsI’m going to run to my heart rate, running with it between 150 – 170, and aiming to keep it below 160 where possible.

I tell people I’m going to run a marathon and they say, ‘Which one?‘ and I say, ‘I’m just going to run around Glasgow until my Garmin says 26.2.‘  It might sound a little crazy, but it’s going to be good to push myself and run the distance around my favourite local streets.  🙂  I’ve trained for it, I’m ready for it, and I don’t need a medal or t-shirt at the end. 😀

Run til your garmin says 26.2 miles.pngThe weather on Saturday is due to be perfect I think… a cloudy 15’C.  Just right for running in.  🙂  I’ll start at around 7am and should be finished around or before 11am if all goes to plan.   I’ll fuel with babybel cheese and hydrate with water from my water pack.

I’m really looking forward to it.  – Who says I can’t run a marathon in Glasgow? 😉

    What app do you use that gives you routes so you don’t have to plan them yourself?
