Well, it is only a month now until Holly and I run the Brighton Marathon.
I think it is fair to say that this week hasn’t been the best for training, the heavy snow and strong winds meant that I didn’t get out on Tuesday for the long run I was planning…. This means that my last really long run (21 miles) will be on Sunday. Then, partly because of work commitments, I will be starting to taper….. and beginning to worry that I haven’t run enough to train properly….
Deep down I know that after completing Sundays run I will have done enough training to get me round the marathon. It is as much mental strength as it is physical. After all I’m not going out to break any records, I just want to finish this marathon with Holly and enjoy it !
I have also been getting out running with Millie and she completed her longest run to date last Saturday… 9 very muddy miles over the South Downs; I’m looking forward to a bit more sunshine but I don’t think that is on the cards for this week…
