This week I have managed to get out for 3 run, one 4 mile, one 5 mile and one 6 mile
My plan now is to run two 6 mile runs a week then one run where I increase by a mile each week. In 4 weeks I will be running 10 miles on my longest run. Many training guides for half marathons I have looked at encourage you to run 10 miles during training, you don’t actually have to run the 13.1 miles of the half marathon.
By the time I reach my 10 mile mark I will have just over a month until the half marathon
I feel these targets are achievable
We are moving house next month which is really exciting. I will have to find new running routes though. I know the mileage of the runs I do now and how I can increase them, I won’t know that around the new house but thankfully I will have my trusty Garmin Forerunner 10 to guide me. Change is good after all!!
My fundraising is going really well! I have set a new target as I burst through my £300 goal and now have just under £400 raised. I may need to increase my target again. My friends and family have been fantastic and there are still lots of people who have said they will sponsor me. My parent’s work colleagues have also been amazing, they alone have raised over £200. It just shows how many people care about my dad and it spurs me on to do great and make them all proud.

Both myself and Mr M are feeling full more often and not eating the huge portion sizes we usually do. We are also making healthy choices throughout the day and we haven’t snacked in the evening! I feel my clothes are looser and I have started to relax about food, knowing that I am making good choices.
My target is to be a size 12 by the end of the 12 weeks (we are in week 3 at the moment) although a 10 would be amazing.
How do you get on setting targets? Do you feel it helps?
