[This intro is quite old now. I have run many ultras now so the blog focus is more on what I am doing now that I am addicted to long distance running, but I’ll leave the old intro for historic reasons.]
Hello. This is a blog. My very first one. The idea here is to talk about running in general but more specifically about my training.
The plan is to go from being a happy half marathon runner to completing an ultra marathon.
From 21.1km to 50 miles. Hopefully in around nine months.
Here is where I am now. I am almost 40 and I’ve been running for around 6 years.
In 2014 I basically raced an half marathon (or 10 miles or 16 miles races) almost once a month and a couple of parkruns.
I have been mostly training three times a week, roughly running 50k per week. This is going to change!
As of today (20 August 2014) my PB’s are:
Half Marathon 1:22:54
Let’s see where the future takes me.
If you are really really interested in my progress you can follow me on twitter. I am @gigetto.
I am also a big fan of Strava.
