Catch me if you can
So I've booked a race, despite not being able to run for more than 3 minutes at a time. Battey, huh?
I've registered for the 2017 Wings for Life world run on 7th May 2017 (which would have been my mum's birthday). It's a race that has been on my bucket list since 2014. I even cost a friend his spot in the 2015 race as he came to my wedding that day instead - thanks Amo! Fancy it this year instead?
I just love how nuts the whole idea is - all the races worldwide go off at the same time, you run as far as you can until you get caught by a car and last person standing wins. It's a race with no end! How do you train for that?
On the website here it predicts I'd make 11km before I get caught by the car. However, according to 50 Races To Do Before You Die the average distance is 15km so now I'm feeling competitive with myself. This is also the reason I am excited, I will be running my own race, competing solely against myself.
Could I make 15km? I know I can run the distance but it's all about not getting caught.
How can I train for this? Should I train for a half (21km) and then I have some cushion or should I train to get quicker and hope I can keep it up? All advice and suggestions welcome!
