Day 17 Training for a half marathon walkThe big deal about a half marathon event is working toward achieving the goal and that all comes to a climax on race day. The real beauty of the half marathon is truly the gift it gives to you around increased commitment to your walking routine. When you commit to 21K you are making a commitment to get out there and get ready for your race day. The first time I signed up for a half marathon I was one of the clinic leaders for the Running Room and I was really well prepared because we were leading the clinic and we made sure that we kept on track. When the day came and we headed to the Niagara Falls Marathon we were ready and it was a good thing because the weather was wet and cold and it was a lot more challenging than we had anticipated ... but because we had done our training days we were pretty confident that we would be crossing that finish line!
Tomorrow our K W Walking Classic half marathon training group are leaving at 7 a.m. and they are heading down the road for 18K.
Another group will be going out for 10K at 8 a.m. and the final group will be practicing their 5Kwalk for 9 a.m. Whether its a 5K, 10K or the 21K everyone will be ready for race day on September the 28th.
Hope you come and join us!
Walk On Strong,
