I don’t have a date for a race yet. There is one on the 23 May 21, but i’m not sure if I’ll be ready by then. I could just give it a go i suppose. At least I would have an actual race time to build on?
Dave, I’d target at least a solo HM event and use the HM plan. You don’t need a formal race, just create a course in your neighborhood and run the first annual “Dave Half Marathon sponsored by 80/20 Endurance.” If you can find an actual HM, great! Otherwise, go for it.
If you are not ready to commit to a HM, solo or official, then sick with the Maintenance plan.
