Jeff Galloway Virtual 13.1

Circle HopAs today is Virtual Running UK blog hop day, I thought it would be a good idea to sign up for a virtual race.

I’ve been using Jeff Galloway’s run-walk-run method to get back to training after injury and, now that I’m back to running again regularly, I figured it would be interesting to see how close I can get to my goal half-marathon time using run-walk-run.

JG131It just so happens that Jeff Galloway himself is hosting a Virtual Half Marathon, so joining his race seemed like a good way of giving pay back for the help that his training strategy has given me over the last few months – that, and the fact that you get a medal and a t-shirt for taking part!

I plan to run the virtual half-marathon in December, which should be do-able if I stick to my current training plan, and of course I will submit my time to Virtual Running UK as well, just for good measure. I don’t expect it to be particularly fast, but it will give me an idea about how fast I can run using run-walk-run.

In other news, Virtual Running UK are hosting their first annual Blog Awards next month. Of course, I’m exempt from this as Virtual Running UK is my website, but if you want to nominate your own or someone else’s blog you can do so by clicking this link; or you can click here to join the weekly blog hop. Either way, it’s a great way to connect with more running bloggers and who knows, you may even win a prize!

So, that’s it for today’s post. No run for me today as I ran last night, but hopefully I’ll get one in tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I like the idea of doing the Virtual Half Marathon. I’m not sure I’d actually do it though, and I certainly don’t think I’d put the right amount of training in. Best of luck with yours though.

    If you weren’t exempt from the Blog Awards, I’d have nominated you. Your blog is so inspiring and I have enjoyed reading about your journey back from injury and embracing the run/walk method 🙂

    1. Thanks Fiona. When I first started this blog it was really just to log my couch to 5K experiences, and I never expected to connect with so many amazing and inspiring people. The blog award is partly about acknowledging that, so I’m really pleased that you and so many other great running bloggers are getting involved. Here’s to a great month of running and blogging! 🙂
