Sub 70 Half Marathon Blog 2



Thanks for checking out my Sub 70 Minute

Half Marathon blog.


If you missed the first blog and have no idea

what it’s about…. read this



What I’ve realised over the past few years is that

whenever I’ve had my best runs I always do a little

bit of planning.


I write down….


1. WHICH run I’m aiming to do well in

2. HOW LONG I’ve got to train for it

3. HOW FAST I need to run in smaller splits. (e.g. How fast I need to run every mile)


I find this great for planning ahead and writing

your goals down makes you more likely to achieve



Here’s a photo of my whiteboard with a little bit

Of my planning and working out how fast I need

To run for 1 mile, 5km, 10km, 10 mile…….

Working out the pace you need to run is vital as

This gives you a goal pace to work for in your training

sessions and you can use them as little targets.



You could try this exact approach in your next goal to 

help you plan your race better. 



In my next blog I’ll show you why I do this planning and what to do 

with it. Don’t miss it! 



Thanks for reading,
