  1. Anyone here with an interest in running?

    Due to a shameful lack of fitness, I’m running a half marathon in the middle of October. I’m looking to beat a PB of 1hr 45. I’m now in a desk job so finding time for proper fizz is not as easy as it once was! Aside from the obvious eat less – train more thoughts, are there any racing snakes out there who can give me some pointers towards beating this time with 2 ½ months training left? My natural build does not lend itself to being a runner – the polite would say stocky, the rest just fat b*stard. :D

    I’m more than happy to build up the miles, but I’m running in London and constant road running is not much of a joy!

    Thanks for the advice
  2. Check out Runners World website, loads of advice and training plans.
